Sleep Apnea Treatment From Your Dentist in Oswego & Bloomingdale
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that affects many people. It can cause a number of symptoms, including snoring, pauses in breathing, and daytime sleepiness. If left untreated, the condition can lead to a number of dental and health problems. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can help improve symptoms, including dental appliance therapy, which can be effective for mild to moderate sleep apnea.
How do oral appliances help treat sleep apnea?
Oral appliances for sleep apnea are devices that are worn in the mouth while a patient sleeps. They work by holding the tongue and soft palate in place, which prevents them from collapsing and blocking the airway. Dental appliance therapy is often recommended as a first-line treatment for sleep apnea, and particularly for patients who are overweight or obese.
How can sleep apnea impact my oral health?
Sleep apnea can cause a number of dental problems, including tooth decay, gum disease, and bruxism. It can also worsen existing dental problems. By seeking out treatment, you can help protect your oral health in the short and long term.
