If you suffer from sleep apnea, you have more options now than ever before to reverse its effects on your life. In fact, even though it’s debilitating, it’s almost better to deal with sleep apnea now than 20 years ago.
One treatment option that’s quickly gaining traction is seeking the help of a dentist to deal with your sleep apnea. But how can a dentist help with this problem, you ask? Well, take a moment to read this blog post and you’ll find the answer to that question.
Why a dentist?
The reason to see a dentist for sleep apnea treatment is due to the fact that these professionals spend their entire careers working with your mouth. And, as luck would have it, many people suffer from sleep apnea due to a poor alignment of their airway. Dr. Leonard Brenner, with the years of experience under his belt, can treat this airway issue.
How is it treated?
When you come visit our team at Brenner Dental of Park Slope in Park Slope, Brooklyn, New York, for help on dealing with sleep apnea, we’ll likely recommend a dental appliance for you to use at night. It’s shaped a lot like a mouthguard, and fits just like one would in your mouth.
What it does, though, is keeps your jaw open at a certain angle that ensures a stable, clear airway all night long. That effectively removes the root cause of sleep apnea.
