Brookline Dentist Assists Patients with Sleep Apnea and Snoring
Oct 30, 2019 01:30PM
Dr. Yasmin Chebbi, a graduate of the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, has adopted a holistic approach to a patient’s full health as it relates to oral health. Among other dental services, Chebbi assists patients with the identification and treatment of sleep apnea, a life-threatening condition that inhibits the ability to breathe when sleeping. Sleep apnea could be the underlying cause of many symptoms such as allergies, ADHD, very high or very low blood pressure, grinding or clenching at night, and acid reflux.
Chebbi works with a team of sleep doctors to assess patients for sleep apnea with a sleep study. Some types of sleep apnea can be treated with a device that a dentist can provide. It is also a great alternative for patients that cannot tolerate the CPAP machine.
Chebbi tells patients, “Good sleep is crucial for overall body health. Poor sleep even has a strong link to dementia and Alzheimer's disease later in life. Our philosophy is to use a researched-backed, methodological approach to help patients breathe better and sleep better at night. Much of the journey to healing starts in the mouth. If a person feels tired or sleepy during the day, experiences frequent headaches, wakes up with a dry mouth, grinds or clenches teeth, we may be able to help.”
