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 .

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.
