Dental Help with Sleep Problems
If you’re having problems sleeping, then your dentist is likely not the first person you think of for help. However, your dentist works closely with your physician with the goal of making sure your overall health is well taken care of – not just your oral health. Upon a visit to your dentist at Engineered Smiles, you will discuss the benefits of oral appliances as well as any potential side effects of the treatment as well as how much it costs.
You can expect your dentist to conduct a full clinical evaluation that includes taking x-rays as well as examining the airways, tongue, teeth, and jaw. After this has been completed and your oral appliance is ready to wear, you will need a follow up to make sure they fit optimally so that they are as effective as possible.
Snoring as well as sleep apnea can be treated with a device that allows you to find relief from these nightly disturbances. The dental team at Engineered Smiles in Marietta, GA have the ability to make sure your smile looks great and you, along with everyone else in the home, sleeps soundly throughout the night. Contact our office to speak with a professional about your oral health and how it can be improved and how treatment can be received for sleep apnea, snoring, and other issues.
