Sleep apnea is a disorder where you stop breathing while sleeping, leading to serious health risks. Your dentist can help screen for sleep apnea by recognizing some of the signs and symptoms of how sleep apnea affects you and your teeth. Grinding and clenching of the teeth can be related to these episodes when you stop breathing and the body goes into “fight or flight” mode as it struggles for oxygen. We offer sleep apnea treatment by partnering with your sleep physician and providing oral appliances that improve oxygen flow during sleep. If you have already completed a sleep study, please bring it to your dental appointment.
