Dr. Chase Kelly, DDS
TOP DENTIST IN SPRINGFIELD
When it comes to sleep apnea, all suspected airway issues are assumed until proven otherwise with a sleep study.
It is recommended if an airway obstruction is suspected, that you undergo a sleep study with a physician. After the results of the study are reviewed, your dentist can work with your physician to determine if a dental sleep device or a CPAP may be appropriate. This is part of us being more than a tooth Dr. but an overall health advocate.
Breathing issues can lead to acid reflux, dry mouth, high blood pressure, fatigue, depression, decreased work performance, clenching and grinding of your teeth, snoring, irritability etc. We screen all patients and recommend any patient with red flags to consider a sleep study with our take home 24 hour testing device.
