Many people suffer from sleep disorders and may not be explicitly aware of it. People with sleep disorders
have one or more of these problems:

Bruxism/clenching - sore jaw muscles and TMJ pain, and possibly heavily ground down teeth
Sleep Apnea - pauses in breathing and/or shallow breathing while sleeping, >>Read more...
If you have been told that by a family member (or you have a family member) that you snore heavily, grind/clench your teeth, and /or stop breathing during the night only to awaken gasping for air, we can help.
With our advanced yet non-intrusive device (about the size of a cell phone), we can monitor/record your sleep patterns including oxygen saturation, jaw muscle movements, and even snoring sounds, we can properly determine what is uniquely your problem and the severity of it while you sleep at home. There is no longer a need to check into sleep centers, which do not promote good sleep in itself.
Past solutions to this diagnosed problem include use of CPAP, but it is uncomfortable to wear, impractical to travel with and patients usually stop using it after a few months. As dentists, we can evaluate and prescribe many types of appliances while taking into account the source of the problem and your preference.
