Do you snore or often wake up with a headache?

by Dental Design, on 15th June 2023 | Comments Off on Do you snore or often wake up with a headache?

Snoring happens when the muscles in our upper airway relax and cause an obstruction. These obstructions then cause the soft tissue around the airway passage to vibrate, which creates the sound many of us know only too well if we share a bed with a snorer!

Did you know that the dentists here at Evesham Dental Health Team on Broadway Road are able to make anti-snoring appliances? These removable devices are designed to be worn at night and work by gently holding the lower jaw and tongue in an ‘advanced position’ whilst you sleep. This keeps the airway open which in turn stops the snoring noise.

If you or a loved one is struggling with snoring, please get in touch.

Is teeth grinding keeping you awake?

Do you experience any of the following:

  • face, neck and shoulder pain
  • a painful jaw when you wake up
  • worn-down or broken teeth and teeth causing sensitivity
  • waking with headaches at the front of your head which ease by mid-morning
  • earache
  • disturbed sleep

It might be that you’re grinding your teeth during the night. There are a number of ways to prevent this, one of which is the use of an occlusal splint, mouth guard or night guard.

Bite and jaw problems affect one in four people and yet this aspect of preventive dental care is frequently overlooked. If your teeth don’t meet together properly, you may have problems not only in your teeth, but also the temperomandibular jaw joint (TMJ) and the muscles that move your jaw.

Teeth that are out of line, heavily worn or constantly breaking, fillings that fracture or crowns that work loose may all be signs of occlusal problems.

Our Evesham dentists can assess your teeth for signs of teeth grinding and arrange for a mouth guard to be made. These guards are worn at night and are designed to fit precisely over your upper or lower teeth and stop your teeth from grinding together.

Digital Bite Analysis

To help balance bites and prevent a wide range of dental problems we have invested in the T-Scan® Occlusal Analysis System. The T-Scan is a diagnostic device that allows us to better analyse and adjust your bite (occlusion) and prevent problems.

You simply bite down on a thin sensor and the software displays the timing of contacts and levels of force in a dynamic movie. It will show your bite from beginning to end allowing us to immediately visualise problem areas.

We can offer various solutions to prevent and relieve bite-related symptoms including preventive advice and exercises, occlusal splints, tooth adjustments (equilibration) and when relevant replacement of missing teeth.
