Sleep Apnea Won’t Let You Be Your Best Self

Dr. Grimshaw offers consultations to determine if you are possibly suffering from sleep apnea.Most people suffer from the most common form of Sleep Apnea: Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a potentially life-threatening medical disorder that causes your body to stop breathing during sleep. These pauses can last 10 seconds or even up to a minute in severe cases, and they can happen hundreds of times per night.

In OSA, the muscles in your throat relax and your tongue and/or other throat structures fall back and block the airway, reducing the amount of oxygen delivered to your organs, including your heart and brain. These breathing disruptions cause your brain to awaken you to resume breathing. You may not even notice these awakenings, but fragmented sleep doesn’t allow your brain to store memories, produce necessary hormones, or wash itself of toxic chemicals produced throughout the day.

Fragmented sleep from sleep apnea can cause severe symptoms and detrimental consequences.

Dr. Grimshaw’s Unique Take on Sleep Apnea Treatment

If you have mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, you have options when you choose treatment with Dr. Grimshaw: Oral Appliance Therapy.

Dr. Grimshaw uses a recent breakthrough in oral appliances, the MicrO2™, to provide comfortable treatment for sleep apnea with consistently positive results. The MicrO2 features a sleek, one-piece design that is easy to adjust. The low profile design, contoured cheek borders, and extra space for your tongue make this durable oral appliance very comfortable to wear while sleeping.

Simply pop it in your mouth whenever you sleep and sleep peacefully without using a machine, mask, or tubes. Oral appliance therapy offers many benefits:

  1. They’re comfortable and better for long-term compliance

If you suffer from TMJ pain, Botox might help you find the pain relief you’re searching for.

You Don’t Have to Live with TMJ Pain

When your bite (how your teeth meet) is properly aligned, your jaws move smoothly and easily to bring your teeth together simultaneously. When teeth are missing or out of alignment, your jaw muscles need to work harder. The jaw joint compensates by moving out of its normal position and into a position that allows the teeth to meet. The combination of pressure and misalignment can lead to TMJ disorder. You’ll experience headaches, damage to your teeth and jaw joint, jaw clicking and popping, pain in your neck, shoulders, and back, and, in some cases, even ear pain and dizziness.

TMJ Treatment from a Neuromuscular Dentist

To treat TMJ disorder, Dr. Grimshaw uses neuromuscular dentistry, a holistic approach to dental care. She looks at more than just the teeth and gums. She focuses on the relationship between the muscles, nerves, and joints of the upper and lower jaw.

Neuromuscular dentistry aims to create a harmonious balance in the entire mouth to achieve an aligned bite. A balanced bite keeps the jaw joints and muscles moving smoothly and helps eliminate or eradicate the symptoms of a TMJ disorder.

Intermediate orthotic therapy

The first step in treatment is using a custom-fitted orthotic device (also known as a “realignment appliance”) that helps to keep your jaw properly aligned. Orthotic therapy is an intermediate step, with patients wearing the appliance for three to six months until their bite is comfortable and their symptoms have vanished.

Solutions to provide long-term pain relief

To correct your bite permanently, Dr. Grimshaw may use crowns, veneers, braces, or clear straightening to correct how your teeth come together and provide relief from headaches and painful TMJ symptoms.
