At Hanin Dental Surrey, we understand that sleep apnea can have a negative impact on many areas of your life. Our Surrey dentists explain how you can help manage this serious condition - and what you can do to promote better sleep and overall health.
How can I stay healthy after a sleep apnea diagnosis?
You’ve received a diagnosis of sleep apnea and have finally started to get some answers. But what’s next — and how can you ensure you get the restorative sleep you need and deserve — so you can remain healthy overall?
Here are some aspects of your lifestyle that you can take action to improve. Implementing a daily routine that encompasses these items may help your sleep apnea and support your general health and well-being.
Do you crave more salty or sugary snacks when you’re sleepy or tired? Once you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and begin to think about changing your lifestyle, refraining from snacking, eating healthfully and managing your weight should be high on your list of priorities.
In addition, in between professional dental cleanings, you should make sure to eat a well-balanced diet that includes fruits and vegetables. This will help your oral health and make maintaining your at-home oral hygiene routine easier.
Tell Your Health Professionals About Our Diagnosis
Have you received a prescription from a doctor or other health professional? Anyone who’s monitoring your health should know about your sleep apnea diagnosis.
While your doctor and dentist will probably be the first people you consider, remember to tell your optometrists, pharmacist and any specialists.
