We all need a good night’s sleep. In fact, sleep deprivation can 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! Dr. White is trained in sleep dentistry methods and is pleased to provide his Dripping Springs, TX, patients with these services.
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. But 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. Dr. White provides a variety of oral appliances designed to keep the airway open when a person sleeps. 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 own sleep or the quality of sleep for other family members, talk to Dr. White about methods available to alleviate these snoring issues.
