Snoring, Sleep Apnoea & More
How Sleep Problems Affect Your Teeth
Do you find that you wake up too early, or have a hard time waking up at all? Perhaps you feel tired during the day? Sleep problems are caused by a number of factors and can greatly affect your health.
Snoring and sleep apnea is common problem amongst many patients, and can be a reason why you are not getting enough sleep at night! Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition in which your airways become blocked, preventing you from getting enough oxygen while you are sleeping.
Sleep apnoea and related issues has been known to negatively affect your teeth. Grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep is more common in people who suffer from sleep apnoea. Over time, this can cause tooth sensitivity and in some cases cracked and damaged teeth. Similarly, sleep apnoea can lead to an increased risk of cavities, as you are more likely to breathe through your mouth, drying out protective saliva.

Treating Your Sleep Disorders
Experts in Sleep Dentistry
Once we have your diagnosis and the cause of your sleeping issues, we can begin to treat them. Depending on the severity of your sleep problems, we may suggest a number of treatments, which can include:
Mouth Guards For Teeth Grinding
To treat nighttime teeth grinding, we recommend a custom-fit mouth guard. A mouth guard will create a barrier to protect your teeth from the damage caused by grinding and clenching.
The experts at Noosa Family Dental can create a mouthguard for you that is made to fit your unique teeth and will help to protect them from further damage.
Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance
To help with sleep apnoea, these devices are designed to help pull the jaw forward, which advances the tongue and potentially opens the airway, cutting down on snoring and the tissue collapse that causes sleep apnoea.
