A dental bridge is one of many options to replace teeth. The doctors at Pax make beautiful and functional bridges, which look completely natural. We put detail into every restoration so you feel confident in your smile. A bridge also will bring back the integrity of your bite, so you can eat with comfort.
SLEEP DISORDER BREATHING
Snoring and sleep apnea are the most common sleep disorders, but due to its wide range of symptoms, it is often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. This disorder causes patients to experience breathing cessation for ten or more seconds at a time during sleep. While many patients experience apnea and hypopnea (shallow breathing or cessation of breath for less than ten seconds), those diagnosed with sleep apnea can experience 100s of these apnea events each night.
AT HOME SLEEP STUDY
Sleep disorders are associated with heart failure, diabetes, and many other chronic conditions. Because of this, a primary care physician, dentist, or other medical provider may recommend a sleep study if you show signs of these illnesses.
