How Can Your Dentist Help In Sleep Apnea?

Posted on 12/5/2022 by Moyer Office
How Can Your Dentist Help In Sleep Apnea?Sleep apnea causes periodic pauses in breathing during sleep. Breathing that stops may continue for 10 seconds or more and occur 30 times or more each hour as you sleep. Snoring is just one symptom of sleep apnea. People that suffer from this may also need to wake up a significant number of times a night to catch their breath, leaving them feeling exhausted even after getting eight hours of sleep the night before.

Visit your dentist to get sleep apnea treatment. There aside from your general dentist who will diagnose you, there are dentists that specialize in treating snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Dentists may aid in treating sleep apnea by fabricating a mouthpiece that keeps the jaw and tongue in the proper position while you sleep.

Make sure to bring up any sleep apnea symptoms you may be having during your scheduled checks with your general dentist. Since sleep apnea is a problem with the health of your airways, your dentist is one of your best bets for diagnosing and treating the condition.

Sleep Apnea Is Dangerous If Left Untreated

Sleep apnea interferes with circadian cycles, creates chemical imbalances in the body and brain, affects pulmonary and cardiac function, increases blood pressure, and quickens the heart rate. If it is allowed to go untreated and unchecked, it will unquestionably lead to an increased death rate for individuals who do not treat it.
