Most people with sleep apnoea are unaware of their condition -- and it may be a dentist or orthodontist who diagnoses it.
The most common form of sleep apnoea is obstructive sleep apnoea, a condition in which airways are blocked intermittently during sleep -- greatly reducing oxygen flow to the body and brain.
It’s a serious condition that can lead to heart disease, diabetes and stroke. Loud snoring is a primary symptom of sleep apnoea.
Fortunately, these professionals can also help treat this sleep disorder.
Visit your local dentist or orthodontist if have symptoms of sleep apnea -- including loud snoring.
