Gardena CA Snoring/Sleep Apnea Treatment – Bruxism Myofunctional Therapy Launch

With an estimated 10% of the American population suffering from mild obstructive sleep apnea, only a few understand that the condition can be caused by the constant grinding of one’s teeth at night, otherwise known as bruxism. That is why many sleep doctors often recommend seeing one’s dentist as well to formulate a more comfortable and efficient recovery plan. Aware of this, Dr. Graham’s Dental Wellness Center announces that its snoring treatment has been further strengthened to include the latest research in myofunctional therapy.

Many patients do not realize that a dentist can help them resolve sleep problems. The updated treatment is a special procedure of general dentistry. According to Dr. Graham, general dentistry should cover any condition that may arise from one’s teeth – including bruxism. She explains that the disorder may prevent a person from properly breathing in while sleeping, causing frequent pauses or interruptions during rest. The result can be as simple as heavy snoring to the more serious, such as a stroke.

Recent research shows that 22 million Americans suffer from moderate to severe sleep apnea. The condition is caused by a blocked airway either by the tongue rolling back or by a piece of collapsed tissue. With bruxism, patients can force their tongue to curl up on itself, leading to sleep apnea.

If a patient suspects their sleep apnea to be related to their teeth grinding, a take-home bruxism test will be recommended. Once the test has been analyzed, an official sleep report will be written which can be presented to a primary physician. Treating one’s sleep apnea through the combined efforts of one’s primary care physician and dentist typically makes the recovery process faster and more comprehensive.

A grateful client wrote, “Dr. Graham was very thorough and professional and she didn’t try to sell me things that we didn’t need. That is why we left our last dentist. We will definitely be back. Please give her a try if you are looking for a dentist. You won’t regret it.”
