Why Visit The Dentist For Sleep Apnea Treatment?

Dentists routinely examine the overall composition of the mouth, which includes the airway. Dentists analyze the position of the teeth, gums, and jaws as it relates to the airway. Factors such as the height of your dental arches, the position of the tongue, and the height of the hard palate can indicate a comprised or obstruction of the airway.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is defined as a sleep disorder. It occurs when one repeatedly stops breathing during sleep. In severe cases, those with sleep apnea may experience an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and cardiovascular disease. Anyone can develop sleep apnea, even children. Undergoing the proper diagnosis and treatment can help improve your quality of sleep.

Louisville dentist Dr. Tracey Hughes offers comfortable, effective treatment solutions for sleep apnea. If you are seeking an alternative to the CPAP machine, be sure to contact our Louisville, CO dentist office.

Common signs of sleep apnea may include:

  • Snoring
  • Gasping for air
