Sleep apnea treatment options at your Farmington Hills, MI dentist’s office
By Dr. Richard Bernstein
Sleep apnea treatment options in Farmington Hills, MI at the dentist’s office makes perfect sense when you consider the general cause of the most common type; Obstructive Sleep Apnea arises as the throat tissues block your airway when you’re relaxed. You can’t breathe. Your body jars itself awake, often with a gasp and snort. This process can repeat itself hundreds of times each night, interfering with the quality sleep that is required to be the best parent, caregiver, spouse, and productive employee or leader. Since OSA does a number on your heart and lungs, it’s important that you seek treatment promptly to avoid devastating health consequences.
As a skilled dentist, Dr. Bernstein is often on the “front lines,” identifying potential signs of health concerns that have big implications for much more than your smile before anyone else. For instance, if you have undiagnosed OSA, he may see:
- Chipped teeth and excessive wear
- Increased presence of tooth decay
- Gum inflammation
- Sore tongue
- Inflamed throat
