Our staff have been forerunners in the integration of dentistry and sleep related breathing issues. Our screening tools evaluate the oxygen levels in your blood as well as monitor your heart rate while you sleep. This information is then used to determine if you have any breathing conditions which should be treated by either sleep physicians and/or our staff.
People who grind their teeth at night often always struggle with breathing issues. When you treat the airway issues – the grinding stops. Grinding teeth is destructive to teeth and expensive to repair. In the past we have provided grind guards to protect the teeth; this was effective for tooth protection but did not make our patients feel better or improve their health – we are doing both.
