Sleep Apnea and Snoring (Sleep Dentistry) in Downtown Edmonton
Is snoring or sleep apnea disrupting your life? Both conditions can interrupt your sleep, or your family’s sleep, leaving you exhausted. We provide several dental treatments to alleviate snoring and sleep apnea to help you get your rest.
Snoring and Sleep Disorders
Snoring is caused when the tissues around your airways vibrate, creating the familiar snoring sound. Because it interrupts your breathing, snoring can cause health problems. It can also affect your family if your snoring keeps them awake.
Dental treatment for snoring involves an appliance that fits in your mouth to hold your jaw in a position that keeps you from snoring. The appliances are made to fit your mouth comfortably so they don’t interrupt your sleep.
Sleep apnea is a potential dangerous condition. People with sleep apnea stop breathing while they sleep. Sometimes this can occur several times a minute without you waking up. Apnea can not only disrupt your sleep, but over time it can gradually starve your body of oxygen. Left untreated, sleep apnea can leave you so exhausted during the day that you can barely function.
Apnea can be treated with a variety of methods, including dental intervention. Don’t go another sleepless night. Call us today to make a sleep dentistry appointment!
