sleep apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a serious sleeping disorder that occurs in a significant percentage of the population, often going undiagnosed for long periods of time. It occurs when one’s regular breathing is interrupted during sleep, causing constantly interrupted sleep during the night. If left untreated, sleep apnea can result in a number of serious health problems, including depression, the worsening of ADHD, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart failure, stroke, irregular heartbeat and heart attack.
At Sweet Tooth Dentistry, we are trained to screen for predisposition to sleep apnea. There are devices available today to alleviate the causes of sleep apnea, as well as lessen the risk of the associated health concerns. If you think you could be suffering from sleep apnea, the professionals at Sweet Tooth can evaluate you and provide you with the information or referrals you need.
