We’re all aware of just how valuable a good night’s rest is. From restoring synapses in your brain to helping you lose weight and stay on top of your game, it’s clear that regularly getting enough sleep is imperative to a healthy lifestyle.

Sadly, though, not everyone has that opportunity. Due to a pervasive disease called sleep apnea, many people fall asleep but don’t rest as well as they could – and it affects millions of people on a daily basis.

So how do you combat it? Well, come visit Dr. Ramin Moradi and the team here at San Tomas Signature Smiles in Campbell, California.

A dentist?

Why go to a dentist for a problem with your sleep? That’s a valid question to ask, and one we field quite often. The answer, though, is fairly simply. A good majority of sleep apnea problems are caused by issues with your jaw and how it rests while you sleep. And as you probably know, dentists are pretty familiar with the jaw – so they’re a great source to go to for relief from sleep apnea.

What’s the treatment?

The treatment is simple and fairly straightforward. For most sleep apnea issues, you’ll start wearing a mouth guard at night. This guard will tilt your jaw in the correct position to allow for better, smoother airflow and a more restful night’s sleep.

While it may not be the first solution you think of, a visit with a dentist can help your sleep apnea. Call us today at 408-378-2890 to start your journey to better sleep today!
