Would you be surprised to hear that there are several steps you should take on your own if you’re hoping to keep your teeth healthy and strong? You may have heard that you should brush and floss your pearly whites and look for changes in your mouth. However, would you be surprised to hear that there are several things you should visit our dentist to have addressed, even though there kits you can buy from your local store? Sleep apnea is one of the issues you should have addressed by a professional.

Unfortunately, sleep apnea can lead to several serious problems. Have you heard that you could have to cope with issues like headaches and fatigue if you have sleep apnea? Did you know, sleep apnea can also make you more vulnerable to heart and lung disease? Our team may be able to help you deal with your sleep apnea by creating a dental appliance specifically designed to match your needs. If you’re worried about sleep apnea, we recommend contacting us as soon as you can.

Sadly, if you try to cope with sleep apnea through the use of a store-bought kit, you could actually be treating a different kind of sleep apnea than the form of sleep apnea you have. This is especially problematic since sleep apnea might be caused by several problems. This means using the same product could actually aggravate your oral health.

We’ll be happy to inspect your teeth and to help you protect your oral health. We look forward to receiving your call!.
