Often, people are unaware that they grind or clench their teeth at night. Your partner may tell you that they hear you doing it. We can also identify the signs of it at your regular dental evaluations. Some of the symptoms of teeth grinding include:

  • A jaw that cracks and pops
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Ear, face and jaw pain
  • Frequent headaches, particularly upon waking
  • Worn-down teeth

Why Teeth Grinding Has to Be Addressed

You might think that there isn’t much danger in grinding your teeth. You probably take over-the-counter medications to get rid of your headache and go on with your day. The reason we don’t recommend ignoring the signs of teeth grinding are many. Your teeth will break down. The enamel is worn away by the grinding, and teeth will eventually break. Your wellbeing is further affected by chronic pain, which can go into your jaw, neck, ears and shoulders.

We can provide you with a custom-created splint. This device looks similar to a sports mouth guard. It is fabricated form impressions we’ll take of your teeth so that it fits snugly and comfortably.

How to Get Rid of Your Snoring and Sleep Apnoea

If you snore at night, you may suffer from obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Sufferers of OSA can awaken up to a hundred times at night. This condition is characterised by your airway collapsing while you sleep. As a result, the flow of oxygen is cut off. You’ll wake up when your brain realises you’re not getting oxygen. The symptoms of sleep apnoea include daytime fatigue, pauses in breathing, loud snoring, insomnia and morning headaches.

How We Address Sleep Apnoea

An oral appliance can treat mild or moderate sleep apnoea. It looks similar to a sports mouth guard. It’s made just for you from impressions we’ll take of your teeth. Our local laboratory will custom-create it for you.

When you wear it, it will shift your jaw into a forward position. This movement ensures that your airway stays open while you wear your appliance. Your airway won’t collapse, and you’ll have a continual flow of oxygen at night. No more snoring, and no more sleep apnoea.
