Teeth Grinding/Clenching Solutions
TMD is also linked to a neurological disorder called bruxism. Bruxism is characterized by the grinding or clenching of the teeth during periods when the mind is otherwise preoccupied — such as during sleep or while working. This grinding and clenching can cause major damage to your teeth. Dr. John Argeros, can offer you a mouthguard to help protect your teeth and alleviate any discomfort associated with the action.
Migraine and Headache Solutions
Do you think TMJ or bruxism related issues are causing your chronic headaches or migraines? It is certainly possible! We can offer you the oral appliance you need to help alleviate your discomfort. Oftentimes, this dental treatment comes in the form of a mouthguard. These mouthguards are designed to be worn at night, gently and temporarily shifting your lower jaw to relieve any stress on the joint and reduce your discomfort. If you are in pain due to chronic headaches or migraines, let us help!
Snoring and Sleep Apnea Solutions
We also create oral appliances to help with snoring and sleep apnea issues. We all know someone who snores loudly after Thanksgiving dinner — maybe it’s a grandfather or an uncle. But did you know that regular or loud snoring actually isn’t normal? This snoring can be a sign of a snoring disorder or something called sleep apnea. When you suffer from sleep apnea, you actually cease breathing as you sleep! It can even lead to daytime fatigue, high blood pressure, or death. But don’t worry — we can help! Both of these sleep problems can be corrected with our oral appliances.
