At Virginia Dental Solutions, we understand the effect a good night’s sleep can have. If you have sleep apnea, our dentists can provide you with oral appliance therapy to help keep your airways open and help you rest better at night.
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder marked by interruptions and pauses in breathing during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by obstructions in the airway, such as the tongue rolling back in the throat or collapsed tissues in the airway.
Untreated sleep apnea can contribute to several serious health conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure, and liver problems.
