Welcome to Smyrna Dental & Headache Center

At Smyrna Dental & Headache Center in Smyrna, Georgia, we are dedicated to providing exceptional services tailored to each patient’s unique needs. Our practice focuses on three key areas: snoring, TMJ, and sleep apnea services. Led by Dr. David Lamothe, our experienced team is committed to improving your overall well-being. With state-of-the-art technology, personalized treatment plans, and compassionate care, we strive to create a comfortable and welcoming environment where you can enjoy a better quality of life.


Snoring occurs when airflow through the mouth and nose is partially obstructed during sleep. Various factors contribute to this obstruction, including relaxed throat muscles, bulky throat tissue, nasal congestion, and the position of the tongue. When these structures narrow or block the airway, it causes vibrations in the throat tissues, resulting in the characteristic sound of snoring.

The QuietNite system, powered by the DEKA CO2 laser, offers a groundbreaking solution to effectively address snoring. This advanced laser technology precisely targets and reshapes the soft tissues in the throat, reducing their volume and flabbiness and addressing the underlying causes of airway obstruction. By tightening the tissues responsible for airway obstruction, the QuietNite procedure opens up the airway, allowing for smoother airflow during sleep.

Unlike traditional surgical methods, the QuietNite treatment is minimally invasive, providing a quicker recovery and very few, if any, complications. Additionally, the precision of the DEKA CO2 laser ensures optimal results with minimal discomfort and minimal risk of damage to surrounding tissues.

Sleep Apnea Services

Sleep apnea is a prevalent sleep disorder marked by interruptions in breathing while asleep, resulting in disturbed sleep cycles and daytime exhaustion. If left unaddressed, sleep apnea may escalate the risk of severe health issues such as heart disease and stroke.

Smyrna Dental & Headache Center utilizes the VIVOS Care appliance to treat sleep apnea and even reverse its causes effectively. This advanced appliance works by gently repositioning the hard and soft tissues that define the airway, preventing airway collapse and promoting uninterrupted breathing. By addressing the underlying factors contributing to sleep apnea, such as jaw misalignment or muscle weakness, the VIVOS Care appliance offers long-term relief. Patients experience improved sleep quality, reduced snoring, and decreased daytime fatigue. Smyrna Dental & Headache Center’s commitment to utilizing innovative solutions like the VIVOS Care appliance ensures comprehensive care for individuals suffering from sleep apnea, leading to better overall health and well-being.

TMJ Services

Our TMJ services offer comprehensive care for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, addressing issues such as grinding, also known as bruxism, and associated jaw and headache pain. Through a combination of personalized treatments, including oral appliances and therapeutic interventions, our TMJ services aim to alleviate discomfort and restore proper jaw function. By addressing the underlying causes of bruxism and TMJ dysfunction, such as stress or misalignment, patients can experience relief from jaw pain, headaches, and related symptoms. With a focus on holistic care and patient well-being, TMJ services provide effective solutions to improve overall quality of life.
