Bruxism is a major cause of tooth attrition. If untreated, even in a younger person with minimal tooth wear, the fact that there is a process occurring, can lead to severe damage to teeth over time.  This process is exacerbated by several factors including the presence of acid in the diet, reduced salivary flow and certain medications.  Fractures of tooth substance are also common, particularly involving teeth with deep and extensive restorations.

Snoring Devices

Snoring Devices

Snoring is caused by the vibration of soft tissues in the throat and behind the tongue.  Studies indicate that at least 30% of adults snore. Snoring can be a major factor in sleep disturbance and the resulting stress, leading to lack of energy, poor concentration, mood swings, and irritability. In the long term, snoring can also lead to high blood pressure and heart problems.
