Snoring can be more than just a nighttime annoyance for you and your bed partner. Snoring can be a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea, which can be a very serious health concern. Untreated sleep apnea puts patients at increased risk for major health conditions including Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, stroke, coronary heart disease, and weight gain. Proper diagnosis is important to obtaining the correct treatment. Oral appliance therapy is often indicated to treat snoring and mild to moderate forms of obstructive sleep apnea. Oral appliances are relatively small, easy to pack and store, and are often covered by most insurance plans. Dr. Steven Blutfield is a dentist who has been trained to screen for and treat obstructive sleep apnea. Call to set up an initial consultation and start your way to a more restful night’s sleep. Sleep well for good health!!
