Just a word about sleep apnea from your trusted Colorado Springs Dentist. As the short video below will testify to sleep apnea is a killer. It is also the cause of over 80% of the nocturnal strokes that occur in the hundreds of thousands to Americans each year. We at Cheyenne Mountain Dental Center are always checking for open airways when we do our patient dental examinations. Oxygen is critical to health and sleep apnea robs the body of oxygen and has been linked to numerous health problems many of which are very serious. Sleep apnea is also believed to be an underlying cause of ADHD in children. We give a screening form to parents of small children that points out potential sleep apnea side effects in children so they can screen their own children. Interested in obtaining a copy of the screening form? Call the office at 719-576-1730 today.
P.S. Sleep apnea is treatable, ask me how!
