Your Dentist Can Help Treat Sleep Apnoea
If you have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnoea and are looking for a way to treat the condition, then talk to your dentist about an oral device.
So, how does it work? Read on to learn more.
- An oral device is custom-made to provide relief for obstructive sleep apnoea.
- The oral device works by helping keep your airway open while you sleep, so you get the oxygen you need.
- A CPAP machine also delivers a continuous stream of oxygen while you sleep, to prevent pauses in breathing and loud snoring.
Obstructive sleep apnea has been linked to teeth grinding (during sleep) and cardiovascular disease. So, talk to your dentist if you’re having sleep problems.
