What is sleep apnea?

If you clicked on this post, chances are that you have or you know someone who has sleep apnea. It is a chronic condition characterized by snoring, gasping or choking sounds when you are sleeping. This condition affects millions and it is typically caused by being overweight or having a misaligned jaw or having a narrow airway. If this is left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to more serious conditions which include high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, or heart disease.

How does you treat sleep apnea?

Many people view sleep apnea as a medical condition and seek treatment from a sleep physician, however some dentists, like the ones here at Etobicoke Metro Dental, are trained to treat this condition as well. If your sleep apnea is caused by a misaligned jaw or narrow airways, we can treat your condition with a night guard and other treatments. Your treatment for sleep apnea at Etobicoke Metro Dental begins with an initial exam and consultation, during which your dentist will take an impression of your mouth to insure your night guard is fitted for full comfort and effectiveness.

How does the night guard work?

Our night guard works by opening up the airways, allowing you to breathe better while you are sleeping. This treatment can eliminate the need to wear uncomfortable CPAP masks at night. In order for the treatment to work, however, you must also do your part by remembering to wear your night guard each night, and keeping it cleaned and maintained with the instructions that your dentist or dental hygienist shares with you.

Getting a good night’s sleep every night is crucial for both your physical and mental health. If you are ready to end your sleep apnea, contact us here at Etobicoke Metro Dental today.

West Metro Dental was as pleasant an experience as a Dental visit can be. The office was clean and in a very accessible location. My one complaint is that I requested my x-rays be sent to an oral surgeon and they haven't responded to my request yet. Other than that the office has friendly professionals and is a good atmosphere!

Been a patient for 5 years. Dr Walia and his staff are incredible. Everyone greets me by name. Never wait more than 20 minutes for an appointment. The true definition of superior customer service and this is from a guy who worked in the customer service industry for many years. I've moved 3 times since being a patient and continue to go to west metro despite there being dentists closer to where I live. I always feel welcome.
