The Importance of Restful Sleep
Sleep is a fundamental pillar of overall health, affecting everything from cognitive function and mood to physical well-being.
Disturbances in sleep, particularly those linked to airway issues, can have ripple effects throughout the body, and may cause a host of other unwanted and sometimes debilitating problems.
Many people have issues that they may not even know are a direct result of a lack of quality sleep!
Who Are These Treatments For?
Sleep disorders can affect anyone, but some individuals may be more prone due to:
- Anatomical factors like a narrow airway or enlarged tonsils
- Lifestyle factors, such as obesity or alcohol consumption

Our Commitment To Quality, Affordable Care
At Connolly Family Dentistry, we believe that access to quality dental care and treatment should not be prevented due to a lack of affordability. As fellow members of the Sewell community, we are committed to making sure that all patients that come through our office are entitled to treatment options that are as affordable as possible.
We will work to maximize your out-of-network dental benefits, though we are currently not in network with any major insurance plans.
