Dental Sleep Medicine

Dr. Hung's Clinical Advice:

"Sleep Apnea is a potentially life threatening sleep disorder characterized by repeated pauses in breathing during sleep. We are learning more how children are being misdiagnosed with ADHD, allergies and other medical issues when in reality all they have are a sleep disorder. Many times a sleep disorder can be treated utilizing an oral appliance." (Dr. Hung)

Consequences of delayed treatment include:
  • Gum Recession and Tooth Loss
  • Occlusal Trauma
  • Arthritis
  • Facial Pain
