SLEEP APNEA MANAGEMENT
What is Sleep Apnea?
It’s a common disorder in which breathing repeatedly pauses during sleep. It leads to snoring, gasping for air, shuddering, and interrupted sleep leading to fatigue upon waking up.
The most common type of sleep apnea is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
Is Sleep Apnea linked to dental health?
Yes, it is.
Interrupted breathing during sleep can lead to many dental issues, such as poor oral hygiene, a dry mouth that can promote oral bacterial infections, gum problems and other issues. Sleep apnea can also lead to grinding of teeth (bruxism), stressed jaws, bad breath and tooth decay.
Dentists perform an essential role in identifying signs of OSA during routine oral examinations, helping early detection of the condition.
