Get More Information About Our Sleep Apnea Treatment
What are the things that I think patients are really surprised about when they come to us is that we ask a lot of questions about their sleep. There’s two reasons for that. Number one, there’s a lot of dental diseases that can be associated with sleep apnea. People can wear their teeth, they can have acid reflux that can cause erosion of teeth. So we wanna know whether or not there’s any risk that they might be having a reason they’re not sleeping well because that might change how we approach their dentistry. Second of all, it really affects their overall health as well.
So when we ask those questions, what we’re looking for is, is there any health conditions that could be related to, maybe, the possibility of having any difficulty sleeping, we know that it definitely can affect their overall health and longevity of their life. So, we go through and we ask those questions to be sure that we’re going to approach this in a way that’s gonna help us to be able to give the care they need with dentistry appropriately, but also if they need some help with sleeping better and having a healthier life because of all the side effects of it.
Then we have different sources of surveys that we can do and questions that we ask to find out if they’re at risk. And, if they’re at risk, sometimes it’s something as simple as something we do here, sometimes they need a specialist, you know. And we just get them on the right path. I have a lot of people that we work with for that.
