Obstructive sleep apnea, bruxism and snoring can all impact your sleep and health. If you have sleep apnea, you likely snore because you experience poor breathing while you sleep. Those with bruxism or teeth grinding also are impacted while they sleep, possibly damaging their teeth from the constant grinding. At Green Meadow Dental, we offer effective bruxism and sleep apnea treatment to protect your smile and health.
The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive. This condition is caused by tissue blocking the airway in the throat. While there are treatments like using a CPAP machine that are effective for sleep apnea treatment, they are also invasive. Another option is wearing a comfortable dental nightguard to relieve the symptoms of sleep apnea.
A dental nightguard is customized for your mouth and designed to shift your jaw while you sleep. This can keep your airway open and reduce the instances of breathing difficulty while you sleep. The result is better quality sleep with fewer sleep apnea symptoms like snoring, fatigue, headaches and health complications.
Relief from Snoring and Teeth Grinding
Not only can a dental nightguard help with sleep apnea treatment, but it can also help those with bruxism or snoring. The plastic mouthguard protects the teeth from damage when grinding or clenching. The shifting of the jaw also can reduce snoring, and it may help those who have TMJ disorders by reducing stress on the jaw while sleeping.
Our dentist and team at Green Meadow Dental can customize a nightguard for your personal use. The mouthguard is designed to fit your teeth and jaw for better comfort and function. If you have sleep apnea or bruxism, you can sleep better and protect your oral and overall health with this effective dental treatment.
You deserve to get a good night’s sleep and feel well-rested when you wake up in the morning. Sleep apnea, snoring and teeth grinding treatment with a dental nightguard can help you improve your sleep.
