Sleep Apnea and Snoring

Do you frequently suffer from headaches and/or drowsiness in the morning? Do you have trouble concentrating?

These symptoms are likely caused by snoring or even sleep apnea. Using a mandibular advancement device (like Somnodent or Narval) is one of the most recommended treatments for these conditions. Click here to learn more about Sleep Apnea and Snoring Treatments.

Neuromuscular Dentistry

neuromuscular dentistry montrealThis specialization of dentistry aims to achieve a better alignment between the teeth, muscles and jaw joints. Sometimes a bad occlusion (alignment of upper teeth on the lower ones) can cause muscle pain. Neuromuscular dentistry helps to obtain an ideal position of the jaws when the muscles are relaxed.

Occlusal Plate

Occlusal Plate MontrealAn Occlusal Plate is an acrylic tray that is worn during the day or night, which will stop the upper teeth from being in contact with the lower ones.

It is a support device for the people who suffer from bruxism (teeth clenching and/or grinding of teeth) or people with TMJ problems (articulation problems).

The functions of an Occlusal Plate:

  • To absorb some of the forces of bruxism and clenching
  • To relax the muscles of the jaw and to ease the tension
  • To relieve the jaw joints (TMJ) and reduce pain
  • To limit the progression of tooth decay by bruxism, and supporting bone
  • Reduces gingival recession

Possible symptoms

  • Broken teeth, chipped or missing
  • Premature tooth wear
  • Difficulty opening and closing the mouth
  • Tooth Sensitivity (without decay)
  • Headaches
  • Sensitivity in the muscles of the face in the morning
  • Pressure in front of the ears
  • Waking during sleep
