Back in the day, dentists used to travel to your home for dental emergencies. Nowadays, people google, “dentist near me” when they experience tooth pain rather than finding a stable dental home. Dentistry shouldn’t be focused on treating dental issues rather than preventing them. If you’re looking for a practice that will accept you and your family as one of their own, there are a few things to keep in mind. Finding a reliable dentist with the services you need can be challenging, but the office of Dr. Paul S. Taxin has a few questions that you can keep in mind while conducting your search.
Have you ever rolled over lovingly watch your partner sleep peacefully…then they abruptly make a disturbing choking sound? Has it woken you out of your own sleep a few times? Your partner may have a sleeping disorder known as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
You think the weird chokes and snores are annoying, but they’re something you really shouldn’t if you have your partner’s best health in mind. Studies have shown a connection between mild-to-moderate OSA and an increased risk of developing health concerns that go further than a bad night of rest. Your dentist is here to explain more about sleep apnea in Cortlandt Manor.
