People with sleep apnea can stop breathing as often as 30 times an hour.
While sleep apnea is relatively common in the United States, it doesn’t make it any less serious.
Our sleep apnea dentists can create a removable oral appliance for you to wear at night. A sleep apnea mouth guard repositions your lower jaw and tongue, keeping your airway clear while you sleep.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Dentist
Does your snoring keep your partner up at night? Ask our dentists about our snoring solutions. Snoring can also be a sign of sleep apnea, which is why it’s important to ask your dentist sooner rather than later.
You may be more at risk for sleep apnea if you’re a man over age 40 who’s carrying extra weight. However, it’s important to understand that you could still have sleep apnea if this doesn’t describe you. Ask your partner if they’ve witnessed you gasping or choking while sleeping. Other signs of sleep apnea include dry mouth upon waking, morning headaches, sleepiness during the day, and snoring.
Our Livonia dentists provide snoring and sleep apnea devices to help patients breathe easier while sleeping. To learn how you could benefit from wearing a sleep apnea device, call Livonia Family Smiles at (734) 525-6100.
