Link Between Sleep Apnea And Dental Health

At the Center for TMJ & Sleep Apnea Solutions NW, we are passionate about helping patients who struggle with sleep apnea. If you are unfamiliar, sleep apnea is a serious condition where your breathing is affected while you sleep. It is not uncommon for those who suffer to stop breathing for short periods of time during sleep. We often speak of the importance of treating sleep apnea and how failure to follow through with treatment can lead to serious complications with your overall health. You may be surprised to learn that sleep apnea coupled with not getting enough quality sleep each night can negatively affect your oral health.
