As research increases on sleep, its importance to our health becomes the focus. At Dental Vitality, our holistic approach will address some of these issues to help you as our patient. As dentists, we are not allowed to diagnose sleep related breathing issues (also known as sleep apnea), but we will routinely encourage our patients to rule it out with your general practitioner. Sleep issues affect our dentistry.

Dental effects of sleeping and the way we breathe, including the following:

  • Crowded teeth.
  • Increased grinding of teeth.
  • Increased fractured and chipped teeth.
  • Under developed jaws.
  • Headaches.
  • Scalloped tongue.

Signs of Sleep Breathing Disorders:

  • Snoring.
  • Insomnia.
