These are just some of the signs that you’re not getting ‘healthy’ night’s sleep…!
Did you know that your dentist doesn’t just look at your teeth? Your Dentist is also the main healthcare professional responsible for your upper airway. Restrictions in upper airway can cause snoring and sleep apnoea (where you stop breathing up to several times an hour while you sleep). Along with other factors, the condition of your airway can play a major part in the quality of sleep that you get, hence – Sleep Health.
People who don’t get ‘healthy’ sleep due to snoring and/or sleep apnoea suffer from what is called a Sleep Disordered Breathing or SDB condition. SDB is now at epidemic proportions in Australia with more than 30% of adults and 10% of children suffering from SDB. EVERYONE know someone who snores!
