When you or your loved one suffers from snoring that is affecting your livelihood, schedule an appointment at Think Oral Implants and Periodontics quickly. Sleep apnea not only can affect your oral health, but cause detrimental health issues when it’s left untreated. When you have sleep apnea, your throat muscles and tongue both collapse on the back of your throat to block your airway, which makes you stop breathing at night. This can cause morning headaches, daytime fatigue, and memory loss. It also raises your risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and having a stroke.
How a dentist can treat sleep apnea
Dr. Ting can treat your sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy. This oral appliance is worn in your mouth while you’re asleep. It supports your jaw in a forward position to keep your airway open while you sleep. This prevents your airway from being blocked or collapsed while sleeping so you don’t wake up regularly. When you treat your snoring, you won’t feel well rested. Your snoring may also affect your spouse. We specialize in treating snoring and sleep apnea with sleep appliances for our patients of all ages. Ultimately, getting restful sleep means that you will have a better quality of life.
