Sleep-Disordered Breathing (SDB) and insomnia are the two most common sleeping problems for Americans. SDB covers several respiratory issues that occur during sleep, including snoring and apnea. A recent article in The Journal of the American Dental Association cites research which shows SDB can lead to long-term brain damage. Chronic lack of sleep can actually alter motor responses, affect mood and cognitive function. This means, if you know you snore, or if you are often sleepy during the day, you are not getting enough sleep. Ask for a consultation to find out if a simple dental appliance can help you to sleep better and prevent long-term side effects.
