Do you snore, grind your teeth or gasp for air while you are sleeping? Oral disorders like sleep apnea and bruxism can impact your health. If you have obstructive sleep apnea, you could be losing oxygen when your airway is blocked while you sleep, increasing your risk for serious health complications. Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can ruin your teeth and cause expensive dental damage. At Optum Dental Arts, we want you to get the rest you need while you sleep. We offer effective teeth grinding, snoring and sleep apnea treatment at our dental center in Tampa, Florida.
Sleep apnea is often caused by excess oral tissue blocking the airway while you sleep. This can cause you to snore and gasp for air, but more importantly, it can reduce your oxygen levels. Individuals with sleep apnea may experience fatigue, headaches and loss of mental clarity from poor sleep and oxygen deprivation. This can lead to higher risks for hypertension, stroke and other health issues.
Sleep apnea treatment does not need to be invasive. While some people require a CPAP machine, many of our patients have excellent results from using an oral device for sleep apnea. A customized nightguard can shift your jaw to keep your airway open while you sleep, eliminating snoring, gasping and airway blockages. You can use your dental nightguard anywhere, and it is comfortable to wear.
Relief from Snoring and Teeth Grinding
Wearing a customized dental nightguard can be beneficial for many nocturnal oral health issues. Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can be prevented while you sleep, protecting your teeth from enamel loss and fractures. If you snore, nightguards can quiet your breathing to allow you and others in your home to sleep better. We design your nightguard to perfectly fit your mouth, so you can be comfortable while you sleep.
