A good night’s sleep is necessary for you to maintain a strong immune system and have the energy to carry out the demands of the day. Without sleep, you can quickly become rundown and tired, even risking your overall health. Sleep apnea is also correlated with sudden cardiac death. If you suffer from sleep apnea, don’t wait to contact Santa Teresa Dental Center's San Jose, CA dental office for a full evaluation.
A CPAP machine can be an effective treatment option for those suffering with obstructive sleep apnea. It works by blowing air with continuous pressure down your throat while you sleep in order to keep your airways open. Talk to Dr. Sudeep about how a CPAP machine could help your sleep and safeguard your life during your next dental appointment.
Are you CPAP intolerant? Dr. Sudeep might be able to help you manage your sleep disorder through the use of an oral appliance. Oral appliances are non-invasive, helping make sleep more comfortable and preventing the need for bulky CPAP equipment. Benefits can include more restful sleep, increased energy, lowered blood pressure and more!
If you are suffering from frequent headaches or jaw aches, you could have Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ or TMD). If you are suffering from these symptoms and are concerned you may have TMJ, Dr. Sudeep will schedule a complete evaluation of your jaw and mouth to determine the best treatment option for you to get the relief you need.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Sudeep may recommend you take advantage of our free laughing gas sedation dentistry option during your appointment.
