Dental Care for Sleep Apnea and Snoring
Dental professionals play a key role in correcting sleep apnea and snoring in affected patients. By carefully examining the teeth, tongue, jaws, and throat, a dentist is able to pinpoint factors that contribute to airway obstruction.
When a dental team has a clear picture of a patient’s mouth and airway, they can recommend treatments that can improve the patient’s breathing quality by opening the airway.
One popular treatment for sleep apnea involves the use of an oral device that a patient places into their mouth before going to bed. This device helps to keep the jaws aligned and the tongue depressed in the mouth. This, in turn, keeps the airway free of obstruction and allows the patient to breathe appropriately.
By helping patients maintain the integrity of their airways, THRIVE Sleep and Breathing can ensure more adequate breathing as a patient sleeps. Clearing airway obstruction will not only improve a patient’s sleep quality but will also have a positive impact on an individual’s holistic health.
If you’ve been experiencing trouble with snoring, or your sleep quality is not what you’d like it to be, THRIVE Sleep and Breathing invites you to book an appointment for an airway evaluation. Our team of experienced professionals will carefully examine your mouth and throat, present you with non-invasive treatment options, and help you take advantage of the sleep quality you’ve been missing.
