Bruxism

Waking up with dental pain? You may be suffering from bruxism, a condition that causes you to grind your teeth at night. The pressure this puts on your teeth can lead to many problems, including:

When you visit our office, we’ll get an impression of your mouth and use it to create a comfortable oral appliance that fits around your teeth, protecting them.

Please note that night guards are not designed for athletic activity. If you’re looking for an oral appliance you can wear during sports, we recommend getting a mouth guard.

Sleep Apnea

There are two different forms of sleep apnea:

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea
  • Central Sleep Apnea

While we can help address obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea is caused by the signals your brain is sending to your muscles. You will need to visit a sleep specialist to address this condition.
