Path to a Good Night’s Sleep

You’re sound asleep, dreaming to the soothing sounds of the ocean. All of sudden, you’re pulled awake by an awful hoarse, saw-like noise. Yuck. What’s accompanying this sound? Tension and pain in your jaw. Sigh, it’s another sleep deprived night.

At Arbutus North Dental Clinic, we know how important a good night’s sleep is.

We also know that snoring can cause dry mouth. This, in turn, can lead to infections, tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath! We need saliva to cleanse the mouth. Teeth grinding causes the jaw muscles to become increasingly more tense, which affects our neck muscles and causes severe headaches. Combined, these issues influence your life in more than just dental ways. We will book you an appointment at your earliest convenience to get started on improving your sleep! Your dentist can also offer advice on how to fix other sensitivity caused from grinding and customize a dental routine that will put you on a preventative path.

Now, you know that teeth grinding and snoring are common causes of sleepless nights. However, did you know that mouthguards can prevent snoring AND alleviate jaw pain?

Here at Arbutus North Dental Clinic, we offer customized mouthguards. We will book you an appointment to check your teeth, make a custom impression of your mouth and then make the mouthguard with a comfortably fitted material. We design them to perfectly fit your mouth.

Sleep is nice. Snoring and teeth grinding? Not fun. Let’s eliminate those! Call us today at 604-256-1455.
