Sleeping Problems? Ask a Dentist

A new study suggests your dentist can help you get a good night’s rest by identifying a major cause of sleep trouble known as obstructive sleep apnoea. This is a medical condition in which breathing pauses hundreds of times during a night’s sleep – and it can lead to heart disease and diabetes.

Patients at risk of obstructive sleep apnea often suffer from large tonsils and an oversized tongue. Your dentist is a perfect professional to identify these factors – and refer you to a specialist.

Key takeaways:

– A tongue that is too large for your mouth will have indentations left by your teeth.

– Dentists can spot the symptoms before other physicians simply by looking inside your mouth.

– Obstructive sleep apnoea can lead to heart disease, diabetes and depression.

“OSA, a disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep due to blocked upper airways, affects more than 18 million adults in the United States.”
