Sleep apnea is a very serious condition leading to further medical complications ranging from diabetes, to hypertension, heart attacks and strokes. Having practiced Neuromuscular Dentistry, we have found the connection between the jaw position and the structures that support them to be intimate as far as seeing the results in the body.
It has been estimated that 60% of men and 40% of women between the ages of 40 and 60 years of age snore. Snoring occurs when there is a partial obstruction of the airway which causes the palatal tissues to vibrate. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway is completely blocked for certain periods of time.
We are now able to assist our patients with sleep apnea by using diagnostic tools to fabricate an oral appliance. Please call us to book a consult today!
