Sleep Apnea

One of the most common dental problems that patients have when it comes to losing sleep or excessive snoring is sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when the airways are blocked during sleep by a misaligned jaw, resulting in choking, snoring, coughing, and general loss of sleep. Your dentist will recommend an assistive device depending on the severity of your sleep apnea. Most cases are solved using a specific mouth guard that is adjusted to keep your jaw forward and keep your airways open as you sleep.

Sleep apnea can be bad for your general health as sleep deprivation can affect many other aspects of your health. Sleep apnea is easiest to curb when tackled early, so it’s important to see a dentist if you think you are showing symptoms. Your dentist will have a solution ready for you based on your individual needs.
