March 15 is World Sleep Day. You know a good night’s rest helps you function better during the day. But did you know that it also keeps you healthier? That’s why it’s so important to treat sleep apnea.

In this short video, a neurologist explains that a lack of sleep deprives your brain of blood flow. Over time, this increases your risk of stroke and cognitive disorders. Fortunately, your dentist can treat your sleep disorder

He can fit you for an oral appliance that keeps your airway open during the night so you can breathe easily. Unlike a CPAP, which has a cumbersome mask and tubing, the appliance easily fits inside your mouth. It’s less disruptive for both you and your bed partner. The appliance also doesn’t make any noise or require any special care.
