About Teeth Grinding, Sleep Apnea and Sleep Dentistry
Many of our new patients are surprised when our providers ask them about their sleep patterns and how well they sleep. For most of us, our dentist is not first on our list to see if we are having sleep problems. However, your dentist is sometimes the best place to start. Our staff has education and knowledge in helping diagnose and treat snoring, sleep apnea, tooth grinding and acid reflux.
Do you suspect you might have sleep apnea? We know who to send you to in order to confirm this and prescribe the proper treatment. Many, if not all, of the above listed conditions can be solved in as little as one or two appointments with a night time appliance. We use 3D imaging technology and thorough clinical exam to evaluate your airway to determine if you are at risk or may be suffering from these common medical disorders.
If you experience sleep problems, be sure and schedule an appointment with us to determine whether your problems can be solved with dental work solutions. Our doctors can explain to you how dental work can help your sleep, answer any questions you may have and recommend a helpful treatment plan.
