Patients who have sleep apnea don’t always know it. Their sleeping partners typically do, as the condition is typically marked by loud, distinct patterns of snoring every night. However, the condition doesn’t wake the sufferer from consciousness, and therefore, isn’t always obvious for what it is. At our Cleveland, TX, dental office, we offer custom-designed appliances to help patients with sleep apnea stop snoring and get the sleep they deserve. By addressing the condition, you can stop the mechanisms that cause you to snore so loudly and to stop breathing repeatedly throughout the night. (more…)

What Having Bruxism Really Means

When you grind your teeth every once in a while, there isn’t really much reason to worry about it. When healthy, your teeth can withstand an enormous amount of pressure without any harm being done to their enamel (protective outer layer). However, grinding your teeth constantly and consistently, especially when you don’t even realize it, can overwhelm even the healthiest and strongest of your teeth. At our Cleveland, TX, dental office, we can help you spot the signs of bruxism during your routine exam and cleaning appointment, and explain what the condition can mean for your smile. Then, we’ll work with you to devise the best treatment plan to help you stop grinding your teeth. (more…)
