Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea as well as other sleep disordered breathing conditions can be treated with dentistry. At Eggert Family Dentistry, we can screen for these diseases to help improve the overall health of our patients. We routinely treat TMD and since the temporomandibular joint is so close to the sinuses and airways, TMD can be related to breathing. We also look for anatomy issues like a vaulted palate, improper tongue position, and large tonsils. Unfortunately, many people with sleep disordered breathing are not even aware they have an issue. Dentally we can often see signs of acid erosion on the teeth and that will also clue us into the need for airway screening. If you suspect you or a loved one suffers from airway and breathing issues, ask us about where to get started today for that perfect night sleep!
