Can Dentists Help You Sleep Better?
"Specifically, when it comes to sleep-disordered breathing, like snoring or OSA, most dentists are in the know. Besides having a look at the shape and positioning of your jaw, dentists can perform an exam to assess the if your compromised sleep is related to sleep apnea or snoring. This assessment should include a conversation to talk about your general well-being as of late. Are you feeling groggy throughout the day? Do you ever wake up with a sore throat or dry mouth? Do you experience insomnia? A candid conversation that covers questions like these may alert your dentist to subtler, non-physical signs of problems."
