The most common sleep issues and disorders

Without healthy, deep, and restful sleep, your body can’t recover. Chronic strain on the immune system can make you more susceptible to disease, as well as these common dental health-related sleep disorders:

  • Sleep apneaOne of the most common (and most underdiagnosed) conditions today. If you’ve been told you snore, wake up with a dry mouth/headache, or are tired all day, get checked out today. Over time, without treatment sleep apnea can be serious.
  • Bruxism – More commonly known as tooth grinding or clenching, bruxism may be caused by stress or misaligned teeth. Headaches, jaw pain, and even worn and fractured teeth may result.
  • TMJ & Migraines – Chronic headaches and TMJ pain may be exacerbated by poor sleep that results from a misaligned jaw or crooked teeth.

Our approach to treating sleep issues

How you breathe at night is a direct result of your daytime breathing habits. Out sleep apnea dentist aims to help you improve breathing habits that are negatively impacting your health and disturbing your sleep. We may recommend therapies like:

  • Vitamin D supplements – Proper vitamin D levels are essential for restorative sleep and 75% of Americans are deficient in this vital hormone.
  • Non-surgical therapy –  Can be used to enlarge under-developed airways
  • Evaluating your autonomic nervous system – Can ensure proper balance and integration

Our goal is to identify the root causes of your sleep issues and let you and your body make the changes necessary to create your best version of yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

“How does poor sleep affect my health?”

Modern research indicates that there may be a connection between the incidence of some cancers and not getting enough sleep or not getting enough “quality” sleep. We define quality sleep as the deepest phases of sleep when your body rebuilds and repairs itself, both mentally and physically.

In addition, there are links between poor sleep and increased rates of:

  • Diabetes and diabetic complications
  • Obesity
  • Stroke and heart disease

Believe it or not, chronic lack of sleep can also increase your risk of being involved in a car accident or being injured while at work.

“How can I tell if I have sleep apnea?”

The biggest risk factors for sleep apnea are:

  • Being a man over the age of 40
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Having a large neck

The most common symptoms of sleep apnea are:

  • Being told that you snore
  • Being tired all day
  • Having chronic headaches or dry mouth
  • Being irritable and forgetful

“What is TMJ pain?”

TMJ pain is caused by damage to the temporomandibular joint. This joint allows your jaw to hinge open and closed. It is quite sensitive to misalignment and is easily inflamed. TMJ pain can present as tightness or throbbing aches in the corner of the jaw. Often the joint may swell or be tender to the touch as well.

Over 50% of those who suffer from TMJ pain also experience poor sleep quality and psychological stress as a result.

“Do you refer patients to sleep clinicians in Beaverton?”

At Neish Dentistry we work with a team of clinicians that range from Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Myofunctional Therapists, and Trauma Specialists to get to the root cause of the problem. The medical model of care for sleep apnea treatment is with a CPAP or a dental appliance.

“I have a sleep disorder that I think might be connected to my dental health. Do I need a referral to see you?”
A referral is not needed to be seen at Neish Dentistry. We treat dental issues and work with other team members to address non-dental origins to your sleep and breathing problems.
