Obstructive sleep apnea that is not effectively managed raises the risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and other serious conditions. Your or a loved one’s health will depend on your decision to work with a sleep disorders dentist who is qualified to collaborate with your doctor.
A number of major medical conditions, including diabetes, ED, gastro-esophageal reflux disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and cardiac issues have all been linked to obstructive sleep apnea. You should not ignore sleep apnea or snoring since your health is at risk. Recent studies are starting to examine the intricate connections between sleep apnea and these other health issues. Always consult your primary care physician, cardiologist, pulmonologist, and/or endocrinologist before having a dentist manage your condition.
Your dentist of choice needs to have the necessary training and experience to handle your sleep disordered breathing issue. While it is technically legal for any dentist to use an oral appliance to treat snoring and/or sleep apnea, this does not imply that all dentists are qualified to offer effective treatment. Since particular training is not necessary, it is your responsibility to pick a dentist carefully. A trained dentist for sleep disorders should possess:
- Appropriate knowledge of sleep medicine
- Adequate training in oral appliance therapy
- Experience with many different appliance types
- Solid relationships with local sleep labs and sleep physicians
- Current knowledge of emerging trends
- Ability to derive maximum insurance benefits for you
- A team approach with other professionals
- A proven follow-up system to ensure healthy results long-term
- In-depth knowledge of oral appliance research
