Do you feel like you are having a difficult time getting to sleep you require? If so, you should consider working with an airway dentistry office in Draper, Utah. Your body needs between seven and eight hours of sleep every night to recover appropriately. Children require even more sleep than that. A dentist can figure out why you are having difficulty sleeping at night, providing you with various treatment options that can make it easier to not only fall asleep but also stay asleep.
One of the reasons why you might have a hard time sleeping at night is sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea takes place when your airway closes during the night, causing you to have a hard time breathing. Some of the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea include:
It is essential to visit a dentist who can conduct a comprehensive evaluation and see if you have sleep apnea.
Multiple treatment options are available if you have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea. For example, a dentist can customize a sleep apnea mouthguard to meet your needs, which can help you keep your airway open when you go to sleep. Or you may benefit from a CPAP machine, which can provide continuous positive airway pressure to keep your airway open. You might even benefit from cutting-edge laser surgery, which can tighten tissues around your throat and keep you comfortable.
At Chase Inspired Dentistry, Dr. Chase Larsen would be happy to work with you to address your sleep concerns. If you have obstructive sleep apnea, we have several treatments from which to choose, and we can customize your plan to meet your expectations.
