A good night’s sleep is necessary for you to maintain a strong immune system and have the energy to carry out the demands of the day.
Without sleep, you can quickly become rundown and tired, even risking your overall health. Sleep apnea is also correlated with sudden cardiac death. If you suffer from sleep apnea, promptly contact River Valley Dental for a full evaluation.
A CPAP machine can be an effective treatment option for those suffering with obstructive sleep apnea. It keeps your airways open by blowing air with continuous pressure down your throat while you sleep. Talk to Dr. Gojgini about how a CPAP machine could help your sleep and safeguard your life during your next dental appointment.
Are you CPAP intolerant? Dr. Gojgini might be able to help you manage your sleep disorder through the use of an oral appliance. Oral appliances are non-invasive, helping make sleep more comfortable and preventing the need for bulky CPAP equipment. Benefits can include more restful sleep, increased energy, lowered blood pressure and more!
Are you grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep? When you grind your teeth, your teeth lose their protective enamel over time. Once enamel is gone, it can lead to more serious oral damage like cavities and fractures.
A night guard is a mouthguard that fits over your teeth to cushion them. This way, your teeth wear down the night guard, rather than their enamel. Night guards can also give your jaw the rest it needs while you sleep.
Dr. Gojgini will ensure your custom-made night guard fits comfortably during your visit so you can get the best results and protect your teeth while you sleep.
If you are suffering from frequent headaches or jaw aches, you could have Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ or TMD). If you are suffering from these symptoms and are concerned you may have TMJ, Dr. Gojgini will schedule a complete evaluation of your jaw and mouth to determine the best treatment option for you.
