You may not think you can mention your sleep apnea to your dentist – but you can!  If you have sleep apnea, you are one of millions of people worldwide affected by the disorder. The most common type is obstructive sleep apnea. That’s when the soft tissues in your throat close at night. It can stop your breathing several times while you sleep. 

We’re sharing a video that goes into detail about the dangers of sleep problems:

When you bring up any apnea problems at your appointment, your dentist will first get your diagnosis confirmed by a trusted physician. Then, once you have that complete, you’ll return to our office for a custom oral appliance. It will keep your airways open during the night. Best of all, it’s less intrusive than a CPAP machine.
