Snoring and Sleep Disorders

Do you suffer from a snoring or sleep disorder?

There are many disorders that are known to impair sleep, serious enough to interfere with normal physical, mental, social and emotional functioning. It is possible to have more than one sleep disorder affecting your health. Disruptions in sleep can be caused by a variety of issues. Below are some that are dental-related:

Snoring

Most people will snore at some time; however, loud or chronic snoring can disrupt sleep quality and disturb others, and it is often associated with other sleep-related breathing disorders.

Obstructive sleep apnoea

Symptoms of OSA include snoring, waking unrefreshed, daytime tiredness and sometimes waking during the night choking or gasping for air. When untreated, obstructive sleep apnoea is associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease.

Grinding and Clenching (Bruxism)

In addition to being detrimental to dental health, the noise from bruxism can be disturbing for others. Bruxism can lead to headaches, jaw pain and daytime tiredness.

Dry Mouth

Dry mouth in patients suffering Sleep Disorders is common due to medications or mouth breathing. Dry mouth causes quick and severe deterioration of teeth.
