If you are grinding your teeth or snoring, you might be suffering from conditions that can severely harm your health. Snoring is a sign of sleep apnea, which is a sleep disorder that causes your body to stop breathing periodically during sleep by causing the tissue in the back of the throat to collapse and block the airway. Teeth grinding and/or clenching can be very harmful to your teeth by causing extensive wear, and can also cause the facial muscles to overwork and become sore. Almost 20% of the adult population engage in this behavior as a response to stress. Night Guard can help decrease the occurrence of both of these problems. It is an oral appliance worn orally during sleep, and it is used to move the jaw forward and/or hold the mouth open. A Night Guard correctly fitted by the Zak Dental team can help keep your from snoring and grinding your teeth.
