Sleep related breathing disorders

Many patients are not aware that the application of modern solutions in dentistry can successfully solve many health problems, such as sleep related breathing disorders or chronic migraines. The Practice Dr. Ježina has been efficiently treating many of the mentioned issues for years. Our partner, the British company S4S (Solutions For Snoring), produces a wide range of products that help dentists to treat bruxism, sleep disorders, headaches and migraines in office:

Bruxism – Excessive grinding of the teeth and/or excessive clenching of the jaw, which very often occurs during sleep, is a serious disorder or parafunction that significantly impairs the teeth. Until recently it was thought that bruxism occurs due to a misalignment of upper and lower dental arches, but all the current studies show that the problem is connected with psychological conditions such as anxiety and stress. Several symptoms are commonly associated with bruxism, including hypersensitive teeth, aching jaw muscles, and headaches. Bruxism may cause tooth wear, and even the damage or breakage of teeth and dental restorations such as crowns and fillings. The Practice Dr. Ježina fights bruxism in two ways: by adjusting the occlusion (bite) and making an intraoral splint that should be worn at night to avoid direct friction between the teeth and further tooth wear.

Sleep disorders (snoring) – Sleep disorders can cause a range of problems, such as fatigue, irritability, behavioral changes,high blood pressure, various types of frustration or even increase the chances of having a heart attack. In some patients sleep disorders lead to temporary cessation of breathing accompanied by sudden awakening. Some patients fight snoring unsuccessfully for years. The Practice Dr. Ježina helps to solve different types of sleep disorders, so do not hesitate to contact us.

Headaches and migraines – Many patients are not aware that deformities of teeth and jaws, and oral diseases may be the cause of migraine and headaches. This condition interferes with the patient’s normal life activities. Treating migraine and headaches with painkillers just increases tolerance to the medication and usually only alleviates the symptoms, while the real cause remains unresolved. The Practice Dr. Ježina efficiently reveals the causes of migraine and headaches using cutting-edge diagnostic tools from the British company S4S. Based on the findings every patient gets an individual treatment plan that in the long run should solve this very serious problem.
