Are you tired, stressed out, and moody because of interrupted sleep? Sleep apnea, a condition in which breathing stops for periods of 10 seconds or longer, can interrupt the deep sleep that makes people feel rested. Teeth grinding along with frequent snoring are also common indicators of sleep apnea. If you have any of these symptoms be sure to schedule a consultation. Non-surgical dental appliances have proven more effective than surgery for many sleep apnea patients. A sleep apnea device may improve your quality of life. It's just another way Dr. Risos can help you smile.
