What are some of these additional services that Northern Beaches Dental provide?
Snoring or sleep apnea can be an exhausting condition for both the person who has the issue and for their loved ones. It can result in disrupted sleep, headaches, fatigue, memory loss, lack of concentration and even waking up from sleep gasping for breath. There are some serious health implications associated with sleep apnea such as an increased likelihood of heart problems, stroke, obesity and depression.
Many sufferers of snoring and sleep apnea are resigned to having to live with their condition, but there are solutions available that can make a huge difference.
Snoring is essentially the relaxation of the tissues located at the back of the throat. This can be caused by the position that you sleep in and the position that your lower jaw falls into when asleep.
With the use of a sleeping device, which positions the lower jaw in a correct way, soft tissues cannot fall into the position required to create vibrations and noise that result in snoring. Speak to your dentist in Mackay about treating your sleep apnea and snoring.
Clenching and grinding, also known as Bruxism, can cause severe headaches and migraines. Quite often you don’t even know you are doing it, and people often do this whilst they sleep.
Frequent grinding can wear down your teeth, causing considerable damage to not only your teeth but your gums and joints and any crowns or veneers that you may have. By using a specially designed splint or night guard, you can limit the effects that bruxism has on your body and relieve the symptoms that are associated with it.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
