Sleep Apnea

It’s incredibly important to maintain a sufficient quality of sleep if you want to lead a healthy lifestyle — and obstructive sleep apnea and snoring can be an obstacle in that regard; not to mention a signal of other severe health risks. Excessive snoring should not be ignored — and JM Dental is your family dentist in Etobicoke that can help with that!

We are always welcoming new patients, and more than happy to discuss various treatment options and oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea. Dental healthcare providers have pioneered the utilization of oral appliances for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea in adults.

Here at JM Dental, we can provide you with an effective treatment that will stop your airways from collapsing. Effectively, we do this by determining the best way to support your jaw’s most natural-fitting position.

Oral appliance therapy is the most effective cutting-edge treatment for sleep apnea. Once a qualified dentist develops your treatment plan, you will start using a custom-fit sleep apnea device during sleep.

Lifestyle Changes

Apart from a professional dental diagnosis, you will receive from JM Dental, it’s important to note that various lifestyle changes can be extremely helpful when it comes to milder cases of sleep apnea.

For overweight people, a more regular exercise routine and a weight loss plan may prove to be essential in battling sleep apnea. Furthermore, smoking and frequent alcohol consumption may also exacerbate such issues — especially in the hours preceding bedtime.

Sleep apnea may also occur as a result of medication, such as sleeping pills or anti-anxiety drugs. Your sleeping position may also be the culprit — particularly sleeping on your back.
