Sleep Apnea Treatment From Your Dentists in Rochester
If you or someone you love suffers from sleep apnea, you know how disruptive and dangerous the condition has the potential to be. Sleep apnea causes people to stop breathing for short periods of time while they sleep, which can lead to serious health problems. Fortunately, your dentist may be able to help.
There are two main types of sleep apnea: obstructive and central. Obstructive sleep apnea is the more common type and is caused by a blockage in the airway. Central sleep apnea is less common and is caused by a problem with the brain signals that control breathing.
Dentists are often the first line of defense against sleep apnea because they are trained to spot the signs and symptoms of the condition. If, during an examination, concerning signs are discovered, you can rest assured that our dental professionals will develop a treatment plan that’s personalized to your needs. A custom-made dental appliance that fits snuggly and comfortably over your teeth, helping to keep your airway open while you sleep, may be part of that plan. Lifestyle changes and other therapies may also be recommended.
