Sleep Apnea

At HillsView Dental, we prioritize our patient's overall health, which includes their sleep health. Many individuals suffer from sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, which can cause a disruption in their breathing patterns and prevent them from getting adequate oxygen at night. Sleep apnea can take different forms and if left undiagnosed, it can lead to serious health issues such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Common symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, waking up with a dry mouth, excessive daytime sleepiness, difficulty paying attention, morning headaches, and irritability. If you experience any of these symptoms, it's important to speak with a medical professional who can help diagnose and treat sleep apnea.

Teeth Grinding

Teeth are incredibly strong, but they are still vulnerable to damage, particularly from grinding forces. Habitual clenching or grinding of teeth can harm teeth, muscles, and jaw joints over time. If you wake up with a sore jaw, sensitive teeth, or headaches, you may be experiencing bruxism (teeth grinding). Bruxism affects 1 in 10 people, and the cause is unique to each person. While daytime clenching is often caused by stress or tension, nighttime grinding may be related to sleep apnea, acid reflux, medication side effects, or hyperactivity. Bruxism can cause pain, tooth fracture, chronic headache, and TMJ syndrome, so it's important to seek treatment if you suspect you have this condition.
