Understanding the link: Orthodontics and Sleep Apnea

You may not realize it, but your orthodontist could play a crucial role in identifying and addressing sleep apnea, a condition characterized by breathing interruptions during sleep. Dr. Lewis and our team possess the expertise to recognize the telltale signs of sleep apnea and can refer you for further evaluation if needed.

The impact of sleep apnea (Children and Adults)

Whether you’re an adult struggling with daytime fatigue and morning headaches or a parent concerned about your child’s restless sleep and frequent awakenings, recognizing the symptoms of sleep apnea is essential. From snoring to gasping for air, sleep apnea can disrupt sleep and lead to a myriad of health issues if left untreated. Other symptoms include, periodic awakenings during sleep, non-restorative sleep, morning migraines, exorbitant daytime fatigue, disruptions with concentration and paying attention, unstable mood, and further complications with other medical conditions they may have simultaneously.

How can my orthodontist help?

Orthodontists specialize in the alignment of teeth and jaws, making them uniquely qualified to address sleep apnea-related concerns. Through innovative appliances and early intervention, we can help alleviate symptoms and improve sleep quality. Plus, collaboration with physicians ensures a holistic approach to managing this condition.

A step towards relief

While there may not be a cure for sleep apnea, there are effective treatments available. From positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy to lifestyle changes like weight loss, there are options to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life. And with the guidance of our experienced team, you can take proactive steps towards better sleep and overall health.
