Sleep apnea a potentially serious condition in which your breathing periodically stops while you sleep. Millions of Americans cope with it. The good news is that treatment is available at Harris Dental in Phoenix.
How do you know if you have sleep apnea? Here is a list of common symptoms.
Sleep Apnea Symptoms
Excessive Daytime Sleepiness
Episodes of Not Breathing
Having one of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean you have apnea. But if you have more than one, you might want to schedule an appointment with your doctor.
There are three different types of sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea describes a condition where your throat muscles relax. Central sleep apnea, which occurs when your brain doesn’t send proper signals to control your breathing. The final type is called complex sleep apnea syndrome. This type occurs when someone has a combination of the two previously listed.
If you or a loved one has sleep apnea, the first step in treating it is an accurate diagnosis. Call us at Harris Dental in Phoenix. People from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa come to us for general dentistry and more. Schedule an appointment today!
In this post from Harris Dental in Phoenix, we focus on behaviors that influence dental health. Of course, regular brushing and flossing are two important habits for healthy teeth, but there are many more things we can do to keep a healthy smile.
Do eat a nutritious diet with a variety of foods. This is needed for overall physical health and a strong immune system.
Do consume calcium-rich dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt to neutralize acids that are detrimental to enamel.
Don’t eat sugary foods. Sugar triggers the production of detrimental cavity-causing acids that weaken enamel and lead to cavities.
Don’t snack throughout the day. This accelerates plaque production and subjects the teeth to continual contact with acids.
Don’t chew on ice (it really can crack teeth.)
Don’t drink energy drinks. They have many substances that are bad for teeth.
Other Important Tips
Don’t use your teeth as tools. It is better to cut that knotted shoelace than to gnaw at it to try to untangle it.
Don’t get piercings in or around your mouth.
Don’t ignore tooth pain or sensitivity.
Don’t use a medium or hard bristle toothbrush. It can damage gums.
At Harris Dental in Phoenix we encourage all of our patients to maintain a lifestyle that promotes dental health as well as overall physical health. Our services include general and family dentistry, and restorative dentistry. Schedule your next checkup with us today!
