Dental Health and Sleep Apnoea

Just as a doctor can often spot possible health problems by looking at a patient’s eyes, so a dentist can detect the sleep disorder called sleep apnoea. This is a condition in which the person stops breathing multiple times during the night but rarely realises it’s happening.

A dentist can detect the sleep apnoea condition by the state of the person’s teeth and gums. Quite often a patient isn’t even aware of having this disorder before a routine dental check-up reveals its presence.

Symptoms of sleep apnoea include:

– Eroded tooth enamel

– Bruxism (teeth grinding)

– Inflammation of the gum tissue

If your dentist “suspects you may be suffering from sleep apnoea” you may be referred to a specialist who will evaluate the situation and treat the illness. More information about diagnosing and treating sleep apnoea can be found at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/how-does-a-dentist-diagnose-sleep-apnea/.
