Here at Shortt Dental, we work hard to help our patients who have sleep apnea.
Many people suffer from sleep apnea, not getting enough sleep at night. They stop breathing throughout the night, which wakes them up.
Suffers of sleep apnea also have other health problems. First they are always tired, so they may have trouble at work and home. They might have trouble with their attitude. Many have high blood pressure, making them more likely to have strokes. Anesthesia is extra risky since they have trouble breathing.
People with sleep apnea benefit from certain devices which help to keep their airways open while they are sleeping. We can also perform a procedure to remove any extra tissue that may be in your throat, allowing you to breathe much better.
If you have any questions about how we can help you with your sleep apnea, feel free to contact us today.
