SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND SLEEP!
Exploring the Health Impacts of Sleep-Disordered Breathing
A Good night's sleep. You undoubtedly consider it when making healthy lifestyle recommendations to your patients. But do you assess oral and airway health as a strategy to improve sleep?
Impaired breathing can be an underlying cause of sleep disorders and have numerous causes. Dysbiosis in any part of the body causes inflammation that can constrict airways and result in mouth breathing.
Please join us Wednesday, Feb. 9, at 11 am PT, when we welcome Integrative Dentist Dr. Ariana Ebrahimian, who will discuss airway health, its relationship to the microbiome, and sleep.
You’ll come away with answers to these questions:
- What is sleep-disordered breathing?
- Why is it so dangerous?
- What causes sleep-disordered breathing?
- Is there a connection between mouth breathing and the microbiome?
- How can you help your patients sleep better and live longer?
