Many people suffer from poor sleep, but in many cases they don’t even realize it. Symptoms of poor sleep can include snoring, fatigue, inflamed gums, tooth wear, and dry mouth. Sleep disordered breathing has also been linked to cardiovascular disease, gastric reflux, diabetes and thyroid problem.
Our dentists always work with you, your physician, and an Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist to provide a team approach for your treatment. Our Orofacial Myofunctional therapist will look at the muscles of the lips, tongue, cheeks, and face as it relates to their functions. We will also perform a thorough head and neck exam as an essential to insure the success of your treatment. Our goal is to give you unobstructed breathing during sleep and an oxygen level for optimum health.
