What is Sleep Apnoea and how can my dentist help?

Snoring partner keeping you awake? A quick jab in the ribs no longer silencing them and letting you both get a better night sleep? Snoring can be a symptom of a serious condition called sleep apnoea and can be treated.

Sleep apnoea is a common sleep disorder in which your breathing temporarily stops during sleep due to a blockage of the upper airways. Sleep apnoea can lead to high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke or even heart attack. Sleep apnoea is a potentially life-threatening disorder.

You don’t have to go see an expensive ear, nose and throat specialist to start to fix the problem. The experienced dentists at Somerset Dental Care offer consultation in regards to your snoring problems. Somerset Dental Care can help diagnose sleep apnoea and recommend alternative treatment options so that everyone can start getting a good night’s sleep.
