Sleep Apnea and Snoring
Get a Full Night’s Sleep Again With Sleep Apnea and Snoring Treatment From Your Sundance Team in Farmington NM
You know your dentist can improve your smile, but did you know that we can also help you stop snoring at our practices in Farmington NM, Rio Rancho, and Bloomfield NM? Sleep apnea and snoring are caused by oral issues that we can treat at our Sundance office. On average, we perform sixty to seventy sleep studies per month. Using the data from a patient’s sleep study, we can devise a treatment plan that will help solve the issue and help that patient get a good night’s rest again.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that can keep a patient from getting the rest that they need to stay healthy. While a patient with sleep apnea is asleep, the muscles in their throat relax too much and collapse the airway. Once the airway is collapsed, the brain stops getting the oxygen that it needs, and responds by waking the patient’s body up just enough to open the airway again. Patients with sleep apnea can wake up hundreds of times during the night without realizing it. Sleep is vital to your overall health. Missing sleep due to sleep apnea can increase your risk for serious health problems.
