Airway and Sleep

Most people think a dentist only examines a patient’s teeth but did you know many also evaluate your sleep habits too? Health studies have proven that your sleep quality affects not only your physical health but your psychological state of mind as well. Getting enough sleep each night allows the body to heal, process information taken in during the day, and helps with other critical cognitive functions like memory and its ability to learn and retain information. Sleep also regulates the hormones, appetite, and weight.

Snoring and sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnea, are evaluated by Dr. Gallegos and with the help of a sleep physician, diagnosed and treated restoring your sleep to its full, therapeutic value.
