Treating Your Sleep Apnea
Our dentist, Dr. Gloria Chen, understands how every part of your body works with others and how sleep apnea can impact you. A sound night’s rest is vitally important for good health, and sleep apnea should not be ignored. Drawing on years of experience and training in many disciplines of medicine, Dr. Chen will explore all of your treatment options with you. Your treatment may include a custom-designed orthotic that will comfortably keep your airway open during sleep and allow you to breathe normally. You can enjoy not only a healthy night’s rest but improved general health.
Additionally, Dr. Chen may want to examine the position of your jaw and its muscles. If they are not properly adjusted, she may suggest a TMJ treatment to further improve your breathing and even your ability to speak. It is important to recognize the symptoms of TMJ, which may include:
- Trouble sleeping
- A sore throat
