Your health, happiness, and general quality of life are directly impacted by how well you sleep. You run a higher risk of developing serious health issues when the quality of your sleep is poor due to conditions like snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
You might be asking why a dentist would care about how well I sleep.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is one of the health issues that dentists can evaluate for during biannual consultations. Since they see you twice a year, your dentist might be the first to identify one of the many OSA warning signs.
OSA and snoring treatment are becoming increasingly common among dentists. The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) offers assistance and training to dentists who are interested in treating OSA. Your best bet is to seek out a dentist who is trained to use oral appliance therapy to treat OSA. To find the best course of action for you, they will collaborate with your doctor and you.
Speak to an AADSM dentist right away if you’re having problems tolerating continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy or would like an alternate sleep apnea treatment. Without using a loud or obtrusive gadget, a skilled dentist can create a personalized appliance for you that will help you stop snoring and improve your sleep. Oral appliance treatment (OAT) is what this is, and it can help you live a healthier and more fulfilling life.
