Bruxism, Snoring and Sleep Apnoea

Bruxism Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Moorabbin Dr Lewell has completed a certification in Sleep Dentistry from the Australian Sleep Association.

He is qualified to work with you to find a solution to your sleep disordered breathing.

This could be to aleviate snoring or to work in conjunction with a sleep physician to treat diagnosed sleep apnoea.

Snoring is not only damaging to relationships but is closely related to spleep apnoea.

Sleep apnoea is a condition that causes a lack of oxygen during sleep leading to chronic tiredness, increased blood pressure, and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.

A specialised oral appliance that is designed to advance the lower jaw and open up the airways, can often be extremely beneficial.

Bruxism (also known as grinding) includes clenching and grinding of the teeth. This often occurs during sleep and is believed to be caused by a lack of symmetry in the teeth, or a disturbed sleep pattern.

Bruxism can cause chips in the teeth, wear of the biting surface and cracks in tooth enamel.

This wears down tooth enamel, removes the sharp biting surfaces and flattens the edges of the teeth.

Sometimes, there is a tendency to grind the molars together, which can be loud enough to wake a sleeping partner. Bruxism is one of the world’s most common sleep disorders.

Over a period of time, tooth damage will occur and may also lead to tooth loss. At Captivate Dental, we can develop a custom-made protective night guard or bite splint to prevent any further damage.
