Appliances for Teeth Grinding, Clenching, and SNORING Habits
Studies have shown up to 80 percent of the population has some type of bruxism or "grinding" habit. In fact, most individuals are not aware that they are grinding their teeth or clenching their jaws since this often happens at night, during sleep. Over time, this habit can lead to extensive wearing down of your teeth, tooth sensitivity, and pain from the Temporomandibular Joint (also known as TMJ syndrome). If untreated, your face can actually appear "shorter" since your teeth are now much shorter in length. Snoring is also a very serious and common problem, especially for men. Some individuals can actually STOP BREATHING for short periods of time due to what is often called SLEEP APNEA. We have customized programs which will allow you or your loved ones to sleep and breath a lot easier- and you will wake up refreshed and energized!
