Snoring and Sleep-apnoea
Are conditions caused by full or partial closure of the airway during sleep. The vibration caused when the airway is retracted closed is known snoring. Snoring is generally made worse when lying on your back. Simple snoring issues can be treated with a mandibular advancement appliance (MAA) and fitted by a suitable qualified dentist.
Teeth grinding and jaw clenching (also called bruxism) is often related to stress or anxiety. It doesn't always cause symptoms but some people get facial pain and headaches. It can wear down or fracture your teeth over time. Most people who grind and clench their jaws aren't always aware they are doing so. It often happens during sleep or while concentrating or under stress. A simple appliance can be made to prevent damage to your teeth and help with associated symptoms such as headaches.
A migraine is not simply a bad headache. A migraine is an intense headache that may be accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea (feeling sick), vomiting (being sick), visual problems and an increased sensitivity to light or sound. Migraines can be caused by grinding your teeth.
