Treating Sleep Apnea and Sleep-Disordered Breathing
Many patients can be afflicted or disturbed by sleeping problems. These problems can be addressed by their dentist coupled with their diagnosis or with their MD consult.
Some sleep disturbances are a result of the dental arches being small or underdeveloped along with a tongue that can block the airway when laying down. Some of the disorders can be identified and managed by their dentist. The Dental Sleep training that Dr. Tinnel has completed has helped many patients, like herself, sleep better.
