Keep your family healthy and reduce chances of oral health problems in the future with these simple steps.
The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) and the muscles supporting it may become painful indicating the onset of Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD). TMJ can be caused from untreated teeth clenching, teeth grinding or trauma to your mouth. Often, stress is the reason for overuse of the muscles. We recommend an evaluation by a TMJ specialist to determine the cause of your jaw pain.
Relief from TMJ Symptoms are possible with one of the following solutions:
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends children see their dentist after their first teeth erupt or by their first birthday. This is based on research that early detection of oral problems can impact children’s oral health and general health. If issues go undetected, extensive and preventable difficulties may occur which can be very costly. Cavities arise in children’s teeth much quicker and more easily than in adult teeth. The speed at which cavities develop happens because children tend to consume more sugar, and primary teeth have thinner shells of enamel for the acid to penetrate. Lastly, bringing your child to a dentist at an early age can help alleviate the future dental anxiety that may occur.
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that causes people to stop breathing while sleeping, affecting our health in many ways. Many people are unaware that they have this disorder. Dr. Gregson fabricates non-invasive, corrective appliances that help move the jaw forward, causing the airway to open and allowing the patient to breathe better. Sleep apnea should never be ignored. Our office always recommends the CPAP as it is the industry gold standard. Our sleep apnea appliance is for those who are unable to tolerate use of the CPAP.
If you wake up frequently during the night, experience drowsiness throughout the day or other sleep disorder symptoms, you may suffer from sleep apnea. Some of these symptoms may seem minor, but if left untreated these symptoms can significantly affect your overall health. Patients with sleep apnea can stop breathing up to 100 times per night. Even more, your sleep can stop for a period that ranges from five seconds to over a minute. Gregson & Associates Dentistry can coordinate with your primary care physician or ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist to provide sleep apnea relief.
