Sleep Dentistry in Dripping Springs, TX
We all need a good night’s sleep. In fact, sleep deprivation has been shown to have a negative impact on your overall health and quality of life. You may not realize it, but many sleep disturbances can actually be treated by your dentist! Ron S. White, DDS is trained in sleep dentistry methods and is pleased to provide our patients with a better night’s sleep.
Why the Quality of Your Sleep Is So Important
Numerous studies conducted over the past several years have proven that getting a good night’s sleep is directly connected to your overall health. And there are other more obvious reasons why you need to get enough sleep. If you don’t, you can feel lethargic and sleepy throughout the day. It can be hard to concentrate at work or school. Lack of sleep can be embarrassing if you fall asleep at inappropriate times. And, of course, it can be downright dangerous to yourself and other people if you are drowsy and fall asleep behind the wheel.
How We Can Help
For many people, the quality of their sleep is impacted by snoring issues. Loud snoring is often the result of the airway in the back of the throat collapsing to a certain degree during sleep. We provide a variety of oral appliances designed to keep the airway open while you sleep. Each of these appliances is custom-made for the patient, making them quite comfortable and effective.
If you or another member of your family suffers from loud snoring that is disrupting their sleep or the quality of sleep for other family members, we can recommend methods to alleviate these snoring issues.
