Sleep apnea is a common, yet often misunderstood sleep condition that causes pauses in breathing during sleep. These pauses, or apneas, can result in numerous health problems, as well as teeth grinding or clenching, which can cause damage to the teeth and jaw.
Common symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, daytime drowsiness, headaches, and exhaustion. Dr. Dennis and his team are committed to delivering effective, compassionate solutions for treating your sleep apnea in order to improve not only your oral health, but your overall wellness.
During your consultation, we will evaluate your specific symptoms to determine the best method of care for you. Common treatment options include the Continuous Positive Airway (CPAP) machine as well as mouth guards, which assist in expanding the airway and allowing a soundless sleep. Surgical options are also available should the non-invasive treatments prove ineffective.
