Many patients come to our practice to see our Torrance sleep dentist regarding problems with TMJ, bruxism, and sleep apnea.
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. TMJ problems can cause pain in the jaw, neck, shoulders, headaches and other problems. Our Torrance sleep dentist is able to help with this sleep disturbance as well. Finally, many patients also come to us with sleep apnea which can cause many symptoms ranging from headaches upon awakening to high blood pressure to even more serious medical problems. All of our treatments for sleep disorders are non-invasive, non-surgical, and are completely reversible. For treatment of these or other sleep disorders, contact our office for treatment.
