Does Your Sleep Apnea Prevent You From Getting a Good Night’s Sleep? Does Your Snoring Keep Your Partner Awake? If So, Your Ideal Solution is to See a Dentist Specializing in Sleep Dentistry, and One Such Dentist in Vaughan and Richmond Hill is Dr. Gelfand.
Snoring could be related to a condition where you stop breathing for 10 seconds or more during sleep; which is referred to as Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or OSA. You are awakened by coughing or choking or by a sleep partner.
OSA can result in reduced oxygen intake, which can put you at higher risk for stroke or heart attack.
Dr. Gelfand offers custom appliances that can help open your airway and reduce the need to use a CPAP machine.
