Sleep Apnea : the Dentist
At the dentist's recently ( not my own dentist, i was waiting for family..) and watching their infotainment animation on TV screen, I noticed a segment indicating that the dentist should be consulted in relation to Apnea ...
I asked my own dentist about this later, but he wasn't too clear about what it involved.
Does any one have experience of a dentist's intervention to correct Apnea ?
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
Check out some Buteyko breathing resources, (
) which indicate to correct daytime (awake) breathing in order to resolve apnea. It's an overall fitness issue, not a dental one. But open mouth breathing at night can lead to extensive dental issues. So correcting doesn't necessarily start with a dentist, they just end up trying to treat the resulting symptomatic problems. (Part of breathing retraining can including taping the mouth closed at night, but in case of apnea, I personally wouldn't recommend that without comprehensive training.)
