mouth guards for sleep apnea and TMJ/TMD
If you or a loved one tends to snore excessively, it may be a sign of sleep apnea, a breathing condition that affects not just your sleep but your overall health as well. Sleep apnea occurs when the throat muscles relax too much and restrict breathing during sleep. In fact, during an episode, patients actually cease breathing – which can be dangerous and, in some extreme cases, lethal. Sleep apnea is characterised not just by excessive snoring but also by daytime sleepiness, a slower reaction time and fatigue. If you experience any of these symptoms or if you suspect you have sleep apnea, don’t sleep on it and contact La Vita Dental Centre, your Kits dentist, as soon as possible, and reserve your appointment.
TMJ/TMD Treatment to Make You Smile Again
TMJ/TMD Treatment can help relieve the pain caused by issues with your jaw alignment. TMJ/TMD is short for Temporamandibular Joint Disorder and refers to the improper position and bite of your jaw that can cause headaches, a sore jaw, locking or clicking noises in your jaw and damage to your teeth. TMJ/TMD may also be responsible for any jaw pain, gum pain, neck and back pain, or tooth pain. TMJ/TMD is normally caused by a malocclusion, which is another word for a bad bite such as an overbite, underbite or crossbite. A malocclusion puts a lot of strain on your bite and teeth and can result in excruciating pain from too much pressure on your jaws and gums. If you’re experiencing pain in any of the areas above or if you suspect you have TMJ/TMD, please contact our Kits dental clinic and we will discuss the best TMJ/TMD treatment options with you and help you get free of the pain caused by TMJ/TMD.
