Obstructive Sleep Apnea Aptos
At Drew Dental, our ultimate goal is to educate our patients so that they understand the subtle but omnipresent manifestations of sleep disturbances resulting in common, everyday dental and medical problems that we see in our dental practices every day. If every sleep lab, sleep center and home sleep testing device that exists today was used 100% every night, 365 days a year, it would take nearly 50 years to simply diagnose all of the people who have untreated sleep apnea today. Sleep apnea can take an estimated 14-17 years off of your life!
Most Common Sleep Apnea Symptoms:
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- High blood pressure
- Acid reflux/GERD
- Morning headaches
- Sexual dysfunction
- Social problems
- Memory problems- Alzheimers/dementia
- Dental symptoms including abfractions from night time grinding
At Drew Dental, we screen every patient who joins our dental family automatically!
