When it comes to dental care and dental health, people very often think of their teeth and gums. While taking care of your teeth and gums is an important thing to keep in mind and is definitely something that your dentist also looks to take care of, there are plenty of other mouth-related issues that your dentist can help you with. Here at Advanced Dental Care our dentist here in North Attleborough can provide you with a variety of oral procedures and therapies, including treatment for snoring, loud breathing, and sleep apnea issues.
You may not realize that snoring or sleep apnea is related to dental health. Our dentist here in Attleborough at Advanced Dental Care, Dr. Arkady Naiman, is well acquainted with the teeth, gums, mouth, jaw and nasal cavities. This is what makes him, or any dentist, qualified to assist patients when it comes to sleeping problems such as snoring or sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a chronic, ongoing condition that can often disrupt your sleep and disrupt the sleep of others. It is a disorder in which there are one or more pauses between breaths. Sleep apnea can also refer to shallow breathing while sleeping. This sort of behavior can unsettle others around you, as you may appear not to be breathing or not breathing sufficiently. This condition can significantly interrupt your sleep since these breaths can move you out of a deep sleep and into a shallow sleep, leaving you feeling tired upon waking up. Snoring can also be an issue for individuals, often disturbing the sleeper and those around them. When it comes to treating either of these troublesome conditions, oral appliances can be prescribed and used to alleviate some of the issues involved.
If you suffer from either snoring or sleep apnea and are tired of the effects, then don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment and visit us to discuss treatment options. Here at Advanced Dental Care in Attleborough, our dentist can provide you with oral appliances that are made to fit your mouth specifically and lessen the effects of either sleep apnea or snoring.
