Does sleep apnea affect dental health?

Sleep apnea has been proven to be directly linked to dental health. It can cause dry mouth, tooth decay, grinding, gingivitis, & more. If your sleep quality improves it can result in better dental health. Good sleep reduces bad breath and lessens the chance of gum disease. 

Sleep apnea is also associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and mouth breathing. People who have sleep apnea are also three times more likely to have a TMJ disorder. Mouth breathing can cause dry mouth, which has consequences such as plaque, mouth sores, and periodontal disease.
