Snoring could be harmless, but it also could be a sign of a more serious condition known as sleep apnea. Both conditions should be addressed by a dentist to avoid health consequences resulting from ignoring the situation. Learn more about your snoring condition and schedule at appointment with a dentist to learn how to remedy it.

    What is Sleep Apnea

    Sleep apnea is a common disorder where regular breathing is interrupted during sleep. Snoring is common among patients with sleep apnea however not all snorers actually have sleep apnea, which is why it’s important to consult with a dentist about your particular condition. There are two types of sleep apnea. Obstructive, which results from blocked airflow, and central, which stems from a problem between brain signals and breathing muscles. Sleep apnea can affect anyone at any age however it’s more common among men over 40. It’s very important to seek consultation and treatment because, if left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to serious medical conditions including but not limited to stroke, depression, diabetes and worsening of ADHD.


    If you are concerned that you or a loved one may have sleep apnea then you should seek a consultation from a dentist right away. At Chicago Smile Design our advanced dental appliances may remedy your snoring or sleep apnea problems. Dental appliances are an alternative form of treatment to CPAP, which is pressure therapy. Dental appliances are preferred among many sleep apnea sufferers as they are more comfortable, don’t dry out the sinuses, and involve far less equipment. However, dental appliances are not for everyone so it’s important to bring your case to a dentist in Chicago, IL for a consultation.
