One very important part of enjoying good overall health is getting a good night’s sleep. Unfortunately, many people suffer from lack of sleep due to sleep apnea or loud snoring. This is not only annoying; it can negatively impact the quality of your life overall. That is why we offer a variety of sleep treatments for our Taylor, TX, area patients.
Why Choose Taylor Dental Associates for Sleep Treatments?
You may not immediately think of your dentist when it comes to sleep treatments. But the fact is that many snoring problems stem from dental issues or jaw conditions. At Taylor Dental Associates, we’ve been providing our patients with sleep treatments for many years. We understand how disrupted sleep can affect your life during the day, making it hard to concentrate on work or school tasks, leaving you feeling tired and groggy, and even increasing the possibility that you’ll fall asleep at inappropriate or dangerous times – like when you’re behind the wheel, for example. Fortunately, we can provide a variety of sleep treatments that can help alleviate these problems once and for all.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SLEEP TREATMENTS
If you suffer from loud snoring, you may be experiencing bruxism, or grinding of your teeth while you sleep. Bruxism not only interrupts your sleep – it can hard on your teeth as well. For these patients, we offer a variety of mouth guards that will keep you from grinding your teeth at night which will, in turn, reduce your snoring. Sleep apnea occurs when a patient stops breathing for extended periods of time while sleeping. This is a much more serious condition that could even be life-threatening in extreme cases. If you believe that you suffer from sleep apnea, you should talk to your dentist right away. He can recommend treatments that may help to reduce or alleviate this condition.
