At Desert Smiles in Glendale, Phoenix-area cosmetic dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox understands that everyday living can be hard for people who suffer from sleep apnea and fail to achieve regular, recuperative sleep.
Some traditional symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Chronic snoring
- Frequent waking
- Morning exhaustion
- Morning dry mouth
- Chronic fatigue
- Memory loss
Increasingly, sleep apnea also is linked to other serious systemic health problems including heart disease.
It's important to seek out treatment because sleep apnea, although widespread, goes undetected in the vast majority of people who have the condition.
In this video, Dr. Wilcox shows patients how an oral appliance customized and fitted by your dentist can stabilize your jaw and open up nasal passages. This enables sleep apnea sufferers to achieve the restful, recuperative sleep that's so essential to long-term health and wellness.
