Snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, clenching, sleep bruxism, and excessive daytime fatigue and poor concentration and memory loss are the most common complaints from our sleep disorder patients. Snoring is the sound that is made when there is an obstruction as the air tries to move across the soft palate. Treatment for snoring ranges from improving nasal breathing through allergy treatment, sprays or surgery. Losing weight and sleeping on one’s side can be helpful for some people, while oral appliances are also effective for many snorers.
Many of our TMJ and pain patients also sleep poorly and suffer from breathing related sleep disorders as well as sleep fragmentation. Several of our female TMJ patients sleep with loud snorers which can also fragment sleep. Some snorers do not seem to be disturbed by the noise they make as they try to catch their breath, but, in fact, if you were to measure the quality of their sleep, you would find they suffer from wakefulness. Such sleep is generally not restful (neither for the snorer or the snorer’s partner) and if untreated, can lead to significant medical problems. This condition causes fragmented sleep, in essence because the snoring person doesn’t have a chance to recover.

There are several treatment options that our NYC and White Plains, NYC sleep specialist doctors may prescribe for your sleep disorder. Some sleep disorders treatments may include:
At The Gelb Center our modern technology allows our Sleep Specialists / Sleep Doctors to visualizes the nose, sinuses, jaw bone, TMJ, tongue, and palate in 3 dimensions:
One of the fastest-growing areas for CBCT scanning technology is among ENT physicians and surgeons. CBCT has, in an important sense, become the standard of care for this branch of medicine. Because they provide accuracy far superior to conventional cephalograms, CBCT scans are now used not only for diagnostic imaging for such conditions as ZMC fractures and other cranio-facial trauma, they’re also used in intra-operative applications. One of the growing areas of application for this technology is CBCT-based surgical navigation. Now maxillo-facial surgeons can process the same 3D images they’ve utilized for diagnosis through software programs that can be used to guide them during surgery.
CBCT imaging also enables dentists and ENT physicians to uncover other problems, such as air passage abnormalities, that are instrumental in causing such conditions as sleep apnea. As with many dental specialties, CBCT cephalometric imaging is changing the paradigm for ENT physicians and maxillo-facial surgeons.
NewTom NNT analysis software and Anatomage enables The Gelb Center NYC and White Plains sleep specialists to realize the greatest benefit from three-dimensional CBCT images. It allows the dentist to perform initial diagnoses and subsequently to superimpose images for assessing growth, treatment changes, and the stability of treatment. The software supports the identification of such things as root inclination, positioning of impacted and supernumerary teeth, resorption, hyperplastic growth, and tooth structure anomalies.
NewTom Implant Planning Software (NIP) enables The Gelb Center to utilize CBCT images to create detailed plans for performing implant surgery on your own personal computer. It provides accurate assessment of the thickness and morphology of bone at implant anchorage sites, as well as supporting unequaled quality panoramic, axial, and cross-sectional images.
You can simulate the implant position on 3D models, identify the mandibular canal, draw panoramics and cross sections of the bone model, show the 3D bone model and calculate the bone density. Using NewTom Implant Planning the Dentist can plan the prothesis implant operation in a safer, more efficent and faster way.
Dr. Gelb has studied breathing-related sleep disorders (BRSD), specializing in how they relate to fatigue, focus, pain, and the effects all of these can have on a person’s life.
The Gelb Center is known as “The Sleep Apnea / Sleep Disorders Specialist in NYC“, “The TMJ Specialist” and “The New York Headache Center” because The Gelb Center is the premier destination for patients suffering from TMJ, headaches, or sleep disorders.
Options for Sleep Apnea Patients at our NYC and White Plains, New York offices:
Because NewTom CBCT scan images eliminate the linear projective transformation errors, including distortion and magnification, that plague 2D imaging, they’ve become the method of choice for orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning. In fact, so effective are CBCT images at reconstructing with great accuracy the maxillo-facial structure of orthodontic patients that they have virtually eliminated the need for several steps in the conventional orthodontic treatment process.
Once the image data has been captured, it can be used to create three-dimensional “virtual models” that enable The Gelb Center to visualize electronically without having to take impressions and wax bites. This saves time for the dental professional and eliminates the need for the unpleasant and often messy practice of creating plaster models.
In addition, it is now possible for The Gelb Center’s sleep doctors to locate impacted molars and cuspids and to measure the dimensions of the alveolar bone with great accuracy. And the technology makes it possible to assess with a high degree of confidence the amount of resorption of adjacent teeth that has occurred and to precisely determine the potential for orthodontic tooth movement.
CBCT imaging means more accurate and economical record-keeping for the Patient. The typical orthodontic post-treatment process used to mean double-pouring the model from which the patient’s retainer was made and preserving it as a final study model, taking lateral head and panoramic x-rays, and photographing the patient. With CBCT, these steps are unnecessary. All that’s required is to take a final cone beam scan and take photographs. This represents important time, space, and money savings for the Patient.
