Your Dentist Can Help Sleep Apnea Symptoms
Our Alpine Dental Health dentists are like great detectives. That means they’re always looking for clues to catch any problems early on, before they become harder to treat. And not just for your oral health, but your overall health as well. This so-called comprehensive dentistry is the core of what we do. In other words, our dentists care about the whole person, not just the mouth.
Sleep apnea and snoring are often related to tooth grinding and other symptoms our dentists screen for during regular hygiene exams. Therefore, it’s no surprise that our dentists are often the first ones to spot problems like sleep apnea.
To sum up, always talk to your dentist about any sleep concerns!
Oral Appliance to Treat Sleep Apnea
Next, let’s look at the actual dental device used to treat apnea and snoring. Worn in your mouth during sleep, this oral appliance helps keep your airway open so you can breathe freely. By addressing apnea symptoms, the device helps patients get the rest they need for health and vitality.
A dentist with special expertise in treating sleep apnea and snoring, also known as a Qualified Sleep Dentist, can design and fit the appliance for you. Importantly, don’t confuse this custom device with a standard mouth guard, snore guard, or retainer.
An oral appliance for sleep apnea can have many benefits, including:
- easy to use
- requires little maintenance
- offers quick and lasting symptom relief
- FDA-cleared treatment
