A Non-Surgical Sleep Disorder Treatment

Smile Auburn Hills MIFor most people, snoring does not pose a serious health risk. However, if you suffer from chronic obstructive sleep apnea, you may be causing harm overnight to your overall wellbeing. This term refers to the momentary pause of breath during sleep due to a blocked airway. Your throat may be unable to properly carry oxygen during our deepest form of sleep known as REM. At these times, the structure of the throat can soften and begin to lay atop itself. Chronic obstructive sleep apnea can contribute to serious conditions such as heart disease. These patients also see an elevated risk of heart attack and stroke.

Bruxism is another condition that occurs during sleep. This refers to the grinding of teeth; when it happens while you are unconscious, you cannot stop yourself. Grinding leads to enamel erosion, where the hard exterior of the tooth wears. Bruxism can cause severe damage to the teeth, so take your grinding seriously. Advanced Dental Concepts in Auburn Hills, MI proudly offers a non-surgical solution that can help by positioning the jaw in a safe location overnight. (more…)
