When looking at signs and symptoms that contribute to sleep apnea, our dentists can determine during an examination if a patient has very little airway space. We also have a thorough discussion about sleep patterns, where typical warnings can include if a patient wakes up tired no matter how many hours are slept.
Oftentimes, a sleep study is also recommended. This is performed at a certified clinic where your sleep is monitored overnight and specialized equipment is used to determined how many times you wake up overnight and if there were any episodes in which breathing ceased.
Sleep apnea therapy is a refined skill and specialty we offer not only to improve our patient’s health but in many cases, save their lives.
