Sleep Health Dentistry
Every aspect of our treatment is related to the airway whether we realize it or not. Periodontal disease, caries, tooth crowding, high palatal arches, constricted arches, tongue ties, malocclusion's, the TMJ's, and teeth with wear or erosion can all be signs of, or contributors to an airway issue. Understanding why they are linked to a constricted or collapsing airway is vital for the health of the patient as well as the longevity of our restorative work. As dentists we are in the unique position to recognize signs or symptoms related to sleep health and can recommend potential treatment. Sleep health is connected to weight gain, premature aging of skin, diabetes, cardiovascular issues, memory, stroke, high blood pressure,and low energy. Please contact our office for more information.
