What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a potentially serious disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts while sleeping. If you snore, clench or grind your teeth, and feel tired even after a full night’s sleep, you might have sleep apnea.
How Sleep Apnea is tested and Treated
There are a few types of sleep apnea, but the most common type is Obstructive Sleep Apnea. At Copperfield Dental, we can help you get tested for sleep apnea. Once it is determined that you do have sleep apnea, a CPAP is not your only choice. We can help fit you with a custom appliance that places the jaw in the correct position to help improve air flow.
