Your oral health requires around-the-clock care, including when you are asleep. Oral sleep disorders like sleep apnea, snoring and teeth grinding (bruxism) can affect your oral and overall health. At Liberty Lake Smile Source, we are dedicated to caring for our patients’ health and improving their quality of life. We offer advanced snoring, teeth grinding and sleep apnea treatment at our dental center in Liberty Lake, WA.
Obstructive sleep apnea can interrupt your breathing while you sleep, affecting your health. You may experience fatigue and headaches from unrestful sleep, as well as a higher risk of hypertension and other health conditions. For many people with sleep apnea, simply adjusting the jaw while sleeping can open the airway and improve breathing.
Our sleep apnea treatment uses a dental nightguard that patients wear when they sleep. For many people with sleep apnea, this improves their breathing and eliminates the need for other, more invasive treatments like using a CPAP machine. The dental nightguard is customized to fit the patient’s mouth for a comfortable experience while sleeping.
Relief from Snoring and Teeth Grinding
A dental nightguard can help with other nocturnal oral health issues beyond sleep apnea. If you grind your teeth or snore while sleeping, a dental nightguard can help with these concerns. The plastic mouthguard protects teeth from grinding and the jaw adjustment works to eliminate snoring for most people. You and your sleep partners can enjoy a better night’s sleep when you use a nightguard to stop teeth grinding and snoring.
If you have sleep apnea or bruxism, a dental nightguard can make a significant difference in your oral and overall health. Our dentist can evaluate your oral health and determine the best treatment option to give you relief from snoring, teeth grinding and sleep apnea.
