Get a Restful Night’s Sleep with Our Custom-made Sleep Appliances
Good sleep quality is incredibly vital for your mental and physical health. Unfortunately, most people rarely sleep the required seven to nine hours a night. If you have sleep apnea or bruxism, you can hardly have a good sleep routine.
Don’t let sleep deprivation put your health and safety at risk. At Yerger Family Dental, we offer sleep appliances to help you combat sleep disorders for a night of consistent, uninterrupted sleep. Whether you have chronic snoring, sleep apnea, or bruxism, talk to Drs. Chase Yerger and Diana Stewart about the treatment options available at our Miles City, Montana, office.
Common sleep disorders
Sleep disorders can deny your body the much-needed rest, risking your health and safety.
Common sleep disorders include:
- Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA): Are you experiencing morning headaches upon waking up? Has your partner voiced concerns over your loud snoring? Sleep apnea may be the cause. Sleep apnea comes in different forms, but the most prevalent is OSA, which arises when the soft tissues at the back of your mouth collapse while you’re asleep, obstructing your breathing. Without proper treatment, OSA can lead to various health issues, such as hypertension, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes
- Bruxism: Patients diagnosed with bruxism chronically grind or clench their teeth at night, although sometimes it can happen during the daytime. Bruxism can result in numerous unpleasant symptoms, including dental damage, headaches, jaw pain, and tooth sensitivity. When left untreated, it often causes damage that requires costly and extensive restorative dental care services
Oral appliance therapy treatment
While sleep apnea and bruxism can wreak havoc on your dental health, the conditions are easily treatable using minimally invasive methods. Our practice offers customized sleeping devices designed to protect your smile when sleeping.
Our snoring and sleep apnea device puts your jaw forward and prevents the soft tissues from collapsing. This keeps your airway open throughout your sleep. The results? You get a restful night’s sleep and wake up feeling refreshed — no headaches, sore throat, or daytime fatigue.
Our bruxism dental guard creates a barrier between the upper and lower teeth, protecting them from the grinding or clenching effects. A night guard eliminates morning headaches and jaw pain. Many patients appreciate getting a good night’s sleep without waking up with aches and pains.
Our oral devices are custom-made after taking your bite impressions. We design dental appliances suited only for your smile. They fit well and allow you to breathe normally when sleeping. Once you slip them in your mouth, you rarely notice their presence.
