If you’re one of the hundreds of adults diagnosed with sleep apnea, your dentist can help you enjoy better sleep with a personalized dental treatment. Signs that you may be suffering from sleep apnea include tooth pain (from grinding), frequent waking at night, headaches in the morning, fatigue, and worn-down teeth. Dental treatment options for sleep apnea include the use of a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) or a tongue retaining device. A MAD looks similar to a mouthguard and prevents the jaw from sliding back and bloating the airway. A tongue retaining device keeps your tongue in place, keeping it from sliding back. This protects your breathing and gives you peaceful sleep. If you want to set up a dental appointment with California Dental Care, give us a call at (707) 741-6090 or click here.
