Night Guards and Sleep Apnea Treatment in Schererville, IN


 

Dental Night Guards

Dental Night Guards - Night Guards in Schererville, IN
Bruxism, or grinding of the teeth, is quite common for people during their sleep. While some people will grind their teeth during the day, this is less worrisome. Excessive grinding at night however, will damage enamel, wear down teeth, cause jaw pain, and irritate gums. To treat bruxism, we recommend using dental night guards. Similar to mouth guards for athletes, these will create a padding between your upper and lower teeth, thereby reducing the stress from any grinding. Our night guards are custom fitted to maximize comfort and can last up to 10 years.

 

Sleep Apnea

Snoring - Sleep Apnea in Schererville, IN
If you have sleep apnea, you know how serious it can be. While some degree of snoring is normal, when it becomes serious enough to disrupt your sleeping patterns it is considered a medical condition. Symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea include loud snoring, irregular breathing, gasping for air, irritability during the day, daytime sleepiness, and depression. Usually a family member or partner will realize these symptoms before you do.

At the NWI Center, we can treat sleep apnea with Mandibular Advancement Therapy; involving moving of the jaw bone slightly forward to allow more room for air to flow behind the soft palate.

All of the non-surgical procedures are routine and very safe. If you are looking for ways to cure your obstructive sleep apnea, give us a call today.
