The Relationship Between Teeth Grinding and Sleep Apnea
One of the most common sleep disorders is OSA, which occurs when the muscles at the back of the throat fail to keep the airway open, causing breathing to become shallow or to pause altogether. People with OSA may snore loudly and frequently, gasp or choke during sleep, and wake up feeling tired despite getting enough sleep.
What many people don’t realize is that OSA can also cause teeth grinding while sleeping. Studies have shown that people with OSA are more likely to grind their teeth while sleeping, as the brain tries to reopen the airway by tensing the jaw muscles. This habit can cause headaches, jaw pain, and tooth sensitivity, all of which can interfere with a good night’s sleep.
Our Solution - How Our Oral Appliances Can Help
At Better Sleep Mid-Ohio Valley, we offer a variety of oral appliances that can help alleviate the symptoms of OSA, including teeth grinding. Our oral appliances work by repositioning the jaw and tongue to keep the airway open during sleep. Not only does this improve breathing, but it also reduces teeth grinding and clenching, helping you wake up feeling refreshed and pain-free.
Our oral appliances are custom-made to fit your unique needs and are comfortable and easy to wear. We’ll work with you to find the best solution to improve your sleep and overall quality of life.
