Not only does sleep apnea prevent a good night’s rest, it has the potential to severely damage your teeth.
One symptom of sleep apnea that warns of potential dental issues – or may indicate what’s causing your existing tooth problems – is waking up every day with an excessively dry mouth. It usually occurs when one’s mouth remains open most of the night while they snore.
But it’s not just dry mouth that you have to worry about with sleep apnea. Problems like bruxism (more commonly known as ‘teeth grinding’) and temporomandibular joint syndrome (also called TMJ) are associated with sleep apnea and can cause serious oral health issues. But Community Roots can effectively treat these sleep apnea symptoms and many more.
