Sometimes you experience pain. Or swelling. Or even dry tissues and bad breath. However, something you may never have dealt with before (that is currently impacting you)? Strange noises that you are fairly certain are related to your oral health. While this may come as a bit of a shock to you and may seem alarming, our Auburn Hills, MI team reminds you that even though you should definitely take action, you don’t need to be too worried. Symptoms that you pick up with your sense of hearing are no more concerning than others. Fortunately, they’re also something we can easily help you resolve, so see us soon.
Jaw Sounds: TMJ Issues!
Hearing some weird sounds when you chew? When you talk? When you open your mouth wide? When you move your jaw in a particular way? When these noises are emanating from this area, it’s usually because you need to see us about your TMJ health. Everything might be just fine! Or, you may need to give your TMJs (your jaw joints) some rest and relief. A disorder called TMJ disorder that exists when jaw joints are injured or strained in some way can cause lots of noises and new sensations. Not to worry about this oral health concern, however! Relief and healing are on their way with our mouthguard that you simply pop into your mouth at night and wear when you’re sleeping.
Loud Nighttime Breathing Noises: Snoring Or…
Maybe you’re making some noises at night as you sleep. Or as you wake up multiple times from sleep (even though you don’t remember this, though your spouse lets you know that it’s happening). As mentioned, whether it’s snoring or a possible case of sleep apnea, you may not hear it. However, you may have a family member telling you in no uncertain terms that you’re making lots of noise (and that it’s really annoying). Don’t worry that there’s nothing you can do about this. There is! We can address this oral health concern with a mouthguard, too! It’s simple, you wear it at night, and it will help you breathe without making all of that racket (and without possibly ending up with poor-breathing-related problems).
That Little Whistle As You Speak
Have a tiny space between your teeth that whistles when you talk? Don’t worry. We can close it with cosmetic care, such as Invisalign, so that sound goes away!
