With extensive experience in sleep dentistry, we offer innovative and effective solutions that help you get a better night’s sleep.
Sleep apnoea is not as simple as just snoring and can be scary for sufferers and their families. It is a sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts, and it can be due to partial or complete obstruction of the throat while they’re sleeping. Sleep apnoea leads to disruptions throughout the night and means sufferers rarely get a good nights sleep, leaving them constantly tired.
Bruxism – or grinding or clenching can go relatively unnoticed by a patient and their family. However, they may find they are getting headaches, jaw pains or even cracking or chipping your teeth. Over a period of time, you can do severe damage to your teeth, as well as suffering through pain and headaches.
Teeth Grinding and Clenching Solutions
Do you find yourself grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw at night? Also known as bruxism, teeth grinding and clenching can affect your quality of sleep and result in pain during the day.
In adults, bruxism is most commonly caused by excess coffee or alcohol consumption or a stressful lifestyle.
While mild cases of bruxism may not cause significant health problems, the majority of cases left untreated do. Bruxism can damage existing dental work such as:
Crowns and veneers.
Result in cracks, chips and uneven teeth.
Hearing loss and tension headaches may be experienced.
Ongoing pain in the jaw, neck, cheeks and back.
Many sufferers don’t notice bruxism until pointed out by a family member or partner, making it difficult to pick up on symptoms. Early signs can include:
A tight jaw
Pain in the mouth and cheeks
Headaches and tension
