At Stewart Orthodontics we care about providing healthy bites and amazing smiles. Realizing that overall health is important, Dr. Stewart also provides care for patients who snore or have been diagnosed with sleep apnea.
Those with sleep apnea do not get the rest they deserve as their inability to breathe constantly awakens them as they gasp for air. A number of health problems are associated with sleep apnea.
- General fatigue
- Trouble concentrating
- Weight gain
- High blood pressure
- Increased risk for stroke
There are several devices available to treat sleep apnea that do not require wearing a mask. They help patients sleep by keeping their airway open at night by posturing the lower jaw forward.
If you have any questions about how we can help you with your sleep apnea, feel free to contact us today at (817) 641-3331.
