TMJ & Bruxism
TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders and bruxism (teeth grinding/clenching) can cause significant discomfort and lead to various dental and facial issues. However, it's important to note that not all cases require surgical intervention. At the forefront of managing these conditions are conservative treatment approaches, with customized mouth guards being one of the most effective and widely utilized methods.
Customized mouth guards, also known as occlusal splints or bite guards, are tailor-made dental appliances designed to fit the patient's unique oral anatomy. They are typically made from durable, high-quality materials, such as acrylic, to ensure longevity and optimal performance.
Sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening sleep disorder characterized by repeated pauses in breathing during sleep. Dentists are well positioned to diagnose and treat this seriously underdiagnosed issue because we are already in the mouth cavity and can easily observe obstructed breathing disorders.
Sleep apnea affects around 10% of American men over the age of 40, and 6% of American women of the same age. Sleep apnea sufferers completely stop breathing during sleep, sometimes hundreds of times in a single night. Normal breathing ceases because the airway becomes obstructed, causing a serious reduction of airflow to the lungs.
If you suspect sleep apnea in yourself or a loved one, read more and arrange a consultation.
