Enjoy Healthier, Happier Days and Nights

Sleep gives your body an opportunity to recuperate from stress and other detrimental effects of the day. Just because you’re getting sleep, however, doesn’t mean you’re getting quality sleep. Snoring is one common reason. It doesn’t only create noisy nights, it indicates that your breathing is compromised. Snoring often occurs when the soft tissues of your mouth collapse onto and obstruct your airway, often causing you to repeatedly stop breathing every night. The American Sleep Apnea Association reports that an estimated 22 million Americans have sleep apnea. To help you overcome this harmful habit, our Vitality Dental – Dentist Nashville team provides safe, comfortable, and effective sleep apnea treatment in Nashville, TN .

Could I Be Experiencing Sleep Apnea?

Though these symptoms are not factors for everyone and there may be different reasons for these symptoms, Sleep Apnea is serious and should be diagnosed by your doctor.

Helping You Overcome Sleep Apnea

We’re committed to helping you enjoy all the benefits of more restful nights and more productive, energetic days. While snoring is the most obvious and common symptom, sleep apnea may cause you to experience an array of problems. You may have difficulty staying alert and focused while you’re working or attending school. You can keep others who live in your home awake at night. You may even endanger your overall systemic health. To help you overcome sleep apnea, our team can provide you with an oral appliance that keeps you from snoring and even prevents destructive teeth grinding. Without such appliances, you have an elevated risk for a number of health issues and other problems you’d rather avoid.

Potential Dangers of Sleep Apnea

Safeguard Your Health with a Mouthguard

Once you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea, we offer customized mouthguards in Nashville, TN to protect you from its dangers. These are similar to mouthguards you might use during sports activities to stop you from clenching your jaws. With this type of sleep apnea treatment, our team creates impressions of your teeth that ensure your mouthguard will fit firmly and correctly. When your mouthguard is ready, you’ll take it home and slip it over your teeth at bedtime. This oral appliance will hold your lower jaw slightly forward, preventing soft tissues from blocking your airway and causing you to snore. You may begin to notice the benefits of sleep apnea treatment virtually immediately, with more energy during the day and quieter, more restful sleep at night!

A Pain Free Smile Has Never Been Closer

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) is a condition that affects the jaw joint and the surrounding muscles. It can cause pain, discomfort, and difficulty with jaw movement, such as opening and closing the mouth. TMJ can be caused by a variety of factors, including teeth grinding, jaw clenching, injury to the jaw or face, and arthritis. Symptoms of TMJ can include headaches, earaches, popping or clicking sounds in the jaw, and a feeling of tightness in the jaw muscles.

One common treatment for TMJ is the use of a mouthguard or splint. These devices are custom-made to fit the patient’s teeth and are worn over the teeth during sleep or throughout the day. They help to reduce grinding and clenching of the teeth, which can alleviate pressure on the jaw joint and reduce symptoms.

Put an end to those noisy nights and more.
