Sleep Apnea Management

A good night’s sleep has the power to restore the body and enliven the mind. Over 18 million Americans who experience symptoms of sleep apnea experience one or more of the following:

  •  Impaired mental & emotional functions
  •  Daytime sleepiness and drowsiness
  •  Irritability
  •  Teeth grinding
  •  Excessive snoring, choking, or gasping during sleep
  •  Insomnia, difficulty staying asleep
  •  Awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat
  •  Attention problems
  •  Loud snoring

Sleep apnea can be a silent condition and can go undiagnosed for many years and some people may have excessive daytime drowsiness, which may cause them to fall asleep while they’re working, watching television or even driving. Sleep apnea could be dangerous and managing it properly could save lives. At Beacon Dental Group, we examine your oral muscles and biting patterns thoroughly. We may be able to detect your sleep apnea symptoms before you realize it.

Be honest with your dentist and share with us any of your concerns.  We can work with your doctor to manage any sleep apnea issues.
