Why use a dental appliance for sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea causes abnormal breathing while a person is sleeping, impacting the amount of oxygen the body receives and reducing the quality of sleep. This can lead to serious health consequences and even death due to heart disease, high blood pressure, or stroke. Sleep apnea has been linked to a number of other medical conditions, including heart attacks, GERD, diabetes, eye disorders, erectile dysfunction and pregnancy complications for women.
