If you grind your teeth at night, it could be a sign of something bigger than just damaging your tooth enamel. Many teeth grinders also suffer from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when your tongue and soft tissues relax so much that they block off your airway. Your sleep is disrupted momentarily – sometimes dozens of times an hour – so that your body can get more oxygen.
Stonecreek Dental offers solutions for both teeth grinding and sleep apnea symptoms. Dr. Sanders and our expert team with can fit you with a custom mouthguard or simple oral appliance to stop these harmful conditions.
