A trip to the dentist can improve your oral health, your sleep, and your overall health. Our Bloomington MN dental office provides treatments for sleep apnea, a condition that causes pauses in breathing and loud snoring.
Sleep apnea is a condition that occurs whenever you experience pauses in breathing at night. It’s much more than snoring. A person with severe sleep apnea can experience as many as 30 pauses in breathing a night. The problems don’t stop there. Sleep apnea can increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. The reason is that pauses in breath cause an increase in blood pressure.
Our office uses a convenient at-home sleep test to judge how you’re sleeping and to diagnose any possible sleep apnea problems. With the results we can develop the best possible sleep apnea treatment. If you have signs of sleep apnea, or you’ve been told you snore, give us a call today at 952-679-1365 to schedule your first visit. And check out the video below.
