Our dentist is a qualified dentist according to the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM).
Here at Sierra Dental, we work hard to help our patients who have sleep apnea.
Many people suffer from sleep apnea, not getting enough sleep at night. They stop breathing throughout the night, which wakes them up.
Sufferers of sleep apnea also have other health problems. They are always tired, so they may have trouble at work and home. They might have trouble with their attitude. Many have high blood pressure, making them more likely to have strokes. Anesthesia is extra risky since they have trouble breathing.
People with sleep apnea benefit from certain devices which help to keep their airways open while they are sleeping.
