Can A Dentist Help My Sleep Apnea?

Do you suffer from problematic snoring? Have you been told that you have sleep apnea? Sleep apnea is actually a disorder where a person has one or more pauses in their breathing or shallow breaths while sleeping. When the pauses happen, they can last for just a few seconds or several minutes. When breathing starts back up, it is usually with a big snort or choking sound.

Sleep apnea is not only troublesome to you and your health, it is often times difficult for your loved one sleeping (or trying to sleep) next to you. Believe it or not, you don’t have to go to a sleep center or a special doctor to find relief from your sleep apnea problems, help is as easy as calling a qualified dentist like Dr. Sarah Roberts at Crabapple Dental.

I've been going to Dr. Roberts for a couple of years now (after a long period of not going to any dentist), and she has helped to bring my quickly developing periodontal disease under control. The staff is always professional and friendly there and they constantly use the most up to date technology. Great dentist! Aaron A.
Dr Roberts and her staff always go the extra mile for their clients. I can't say it's ever really fun to go to the dentist, but she's outstanding and really cares about helping you have a heathy mouth, not just pretty teeth. Jeremy R.
Dr. Sarah Roberts and her team (all of them) have given me the best experience I have had with a dental office. I have moved around a bit and out of the 4 offices I have gone to in the last 15 years, this is by far the best. I highly recommend. Ryan D.
