How can a dentist tell if you have sleep apnea?
A dentist can tell if you have sleep apnea because there are often signs of the disorder in your mouth and throat. Dentists are well-educated on the health of these areas, so they’re often the person who can best tell if something is wrong.
While your dentist may be able to point out signs of sleep apnea, you must be formally diagnosed by a qualified physician in order to receive treatment. The only way to do this is to undergo a sleep test and review the results with your physician.
Once you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea, Dr. Garceau can develop a treatment plan just for you. With the help of a convenient oral appliance and some basic lifestyle changes, she can provide the relief you need to enjoy a sound night’s rest.
