Sleep apnea is a common disorder that causes interrupted breathing while you sleep. If left untreated, it can lead to serious health complications, including high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, depression and more. Luckily, sleep apnea can be treated with help from oral appliances, breathing machines or, in severe cases, surgery.
At Red Bank Smiles, Dr. Benjamin Klayman and his team are highly trained at spotting the symptoms of sleep apnea and can offer treatment recommendations that may provide relief. Sleep apnea is the most common cause of teeth grinding because the body fights to push your jaw forward to open your airway.
