About 20% of the adult population suffers from snoring, teeth grinding, and symptoms of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder and sleep apnea. TMJ is nothing to joke about; it is the inflammation of the temporomandibular joint, often the result of abrasive tooth grinding. This can lead to severe migraines and hearing loss.
Sleep apnea is a serious issue as well and should be treated immediately. This sleep disorder occurs when a patient’s breathing is interrupted during sleep and causes snoring, both dangerous and irritating for your significant other.
A Night Guard is an oral appliance that holds the mouth open and/or moves the jaw forward when worn during sleep. The device prevents the teeth from damage caused by grinding. We fit each Night Guard per mouth structure and symptoms.
