Sleep Apnea and Dental Problems: Why Seek Help from a Dentist for OSA?
Snoring, headaches and sore throats, and fatigue during the day are just among the usual symptoms of sleep apnea, a condition that affects not only the quality of your sleep, but also the quality of your life. Unfortunately, it’s easy to ignore these symptoms, thus this condition often goes undetected.
Much has been said on the negative effects of obstructive sleep apnea on one’s health, yet most patients aren’t aware of how this condition affects one’s dental health as well.
