If you are waking up in the morning feeling tired and un-refreshed, you may indeed be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. This disorder is a serious sleep disorder which can lead to many different types of health problems. Luckily, there is treatment for this type of sleep apnea, and it can be received from our Torrance sleep dentist at our dental office.

Our expert obstructive sleep apnea dentist is Dr. Paul Grin. He can be seen at our practice, Dr. Paul Grin, DDS, MPH, APC. Sleep apnea is a condition that affects up to 4% of men in the middle ages, and up to 9% of women of the same age. Almost 90% of patients who suffer with sleep apnea are entirely undiagnosed. These people may even end up in life-threatening situations due to the fact that they are going through their everyday lives with their bodies trying to operate on little to no rest. Sleep apnea is a breathing disorder that makes it difficult to sleep. A person can stop breathing while they are unconscious for at least 10 seconds at a time. This happens continuously throughout the night, and the patient will not even know what is occurring since they are not fully conscious at the time. The patient will awaken feeling totally unrested, and may suffer from persistent drowsiness, difficulty concentrating, failing memory, headaches, loud snoring, frequency in needing to urinate throughout the evening hours, and even experiencing personality changes that are quite noticeable to others. Partners may hear the person gasp for breath while they are still fast asleep. Our Torrance sleep dentist will be able to treat patients who are suffering with obstructive sleep apnea.

Our Torrance sleep dentist will be able to help obstructive sleep apnea with the prescription of a simple medical device. Our dentist will first determine whether or not you are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. If it is seen to be the case, our dentist will be able to prescribe an oral device which will be able to keep your tongue and jaw are in proper position so that your sleep will not be interrupted by obstructive sleep apnea. This device is very easy to use, much in the way a mouth guard is used. This oral appliance is very easy to keep clean and is extremely portable and easy to travel with. For an appointment to meet with our sleep dentist regarding getting needed care for your sleep apnea, contact us today.

Bruxism is another name for teeth grinding. Many patients do this to help relieve their stress or anxiety; however, patients are oftentimes not even aware that they are doing it. However, there dentist may recognize resulting tooth problems during a general checkup. Patients who grind their teeth in their sleep risk hurting their bite or even severely damaging their teeth and jaws if this is allowed to continue over a period of time. Bruxism can also cause chronic jaw and facial pain as well as serious headaches. Luckily bruxism is generally a treatable condition involving the use of special appliances that are worn while you sleep. At our practice you can also receive information about getting treatment such as biofeedback or behavior modification to help with pain relief.
