Why Obstructive Sleep Apnea Is a Major Health Concern
At Shank Dentistry, we know that sleep-related breathing problems like obstructive sleep apnea are a growing concern and can negatively influence your health and wellness.
Obstructive sleep apnea, in fact, may also have a harmful impact on teeth because it is associated with teeth grinding while asleep.
Dr. Shank has a lot of experience in treating snoring and other sleep-related breathing disorders, many times without the use of a burdensome CPAP machine.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea Concerns
Obstructive sleep apnea means your breathing ceases while you sleep, which prompts you to wake. This can happen hundreds of times a night even if you don’t recall waking. The next day you may feel tired and irritable.
