Breathing / Sleep Dentistry
Many people who suffer from a sleep-related breathing issue don’t know it. Symptoms include teeth grinding, snoring, headaches, daytime sleepiness, fatigue, etc. Many times during the night, the airway may get obstructed and breathing can be restricted or stop. The lack of oxygen, number of night wakings, heart rate and restricted breathing elicit the patient’s symptoms. A home sleep test can help diagnose the issue and help us suggest treatment.
