Untreated obstructive sleep apnea increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and other serious illnesses. Your choice to work with a dentist who specializes in sleep disorders and is equipped to consult with your doctor will have an impact on your or a loved one’s health.
Obstructive sleep apnea has been associated to a number of serious medical diseases, including diabetes, ED, gastro-esophageal reflux disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and heart problems. Your health is in danger if you neglect sleep apnea or snoring. The complex relationships between sleep apnea and various other health problems are now being studied in recent studies. Prior to having a dentist handle your condition, always speak with your primary care physician, cardiologist, pulmonologist, and/or endocrinologist.
Your preferred dentist must be qualified and experienced to address your breathing disorder caused by sleep deprivation. Although using an oral appliance to treat snoring and/or sleep apnea is legally permitted for any dentist, this does not indicate that all dentists are equipped to provide successful therapy. Since special training is not required, it is your responsibility to carefully choose a dentist. A dentist with experience treating sleep disorders should have:
- 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
