Lack of Sleep Affects the Quality of Your Life in Every Way
Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) can cause snoring, gasping, cessation of breathing such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and interrupted sleep. All of these things can affect every aspect of our lives from our effectiveness on the job to our relationships… and even our safety!
WARNING: Other serious health issues such as circulation and/or heart problems have now been associated with snoring and sleep disorders. Even behavioral issues in children can often be traced directly back to lack of sleep due to myofunctional problems such as chronic mouth breathing, reverse swallowing and tongue thrusting which cause the jaw to not form properly.
What Causes Snoring & Breathing Disorders
Breathing issues are one of the most common causes of Sleep Disorders and Snoring. Snoring occurs when the flow of air through the nose and/or mouth are obstructed during sleep. While the airflow obstruction is most often caused by over relaxation and weak jaw and throat muscles, there are many other underlying causes of snoring and breathing disorders.
The most common underlying causes of Snoring and Breathing Disorders are:
Weak Jaw and Throat Muscles
Lack of Forward Development of the Jaws
Chronic Mouth Breathing
Tongue Thrusting and Reverse Swallowing
Orthodontics & Extractions can make breathing problems worse
What Can Help Me Sleep Better?
Treatment with Oral Appliances is now considered the most convenient way to alleviate Snoring and Breathing Disorders. Many people try CPAP machines as that is what is most commonly prescribed, but they find that the very thing prescribed to help them sleep is so uncomfortable that they eventually give up and resign themselves to never having a good night’s sleep again. However, there is a more convenient, comfortable and less expensive alternative to a CPAP machine!
If you experience sleep interrupted by snoring, gasping, cessation of breathing (SDB)andObstructed Sleep Apnea (OSA,) or even teeth grinding,there is an answer!
A More Comfortable and Affordable Option to a CPAP Machine
The TMJ-MBV appliances are specifically designed for snorers and chronic mouth breathers! The appliance alleviates these issues by advancing the lower jaw and opening up the bite, which in turn easily and naturally opens up your airway.
The majority of intra-oral dental appliances are rigid and position the lower jaw forward in an unnatural position which can cause jaw joint (TMJ) pain, and even damage, over time. They will also alter your bite to an unnatural position that is NOT recommended!
The soft, flexible design of the TMJ-MBV appliance is comfortable, and the patented Air Spring Coretechnology cushions and minimizes the impact on your jaw joints alleviating pain and discomfort.
The TMJ-MBV appliance with its comfortable design and “instant fit” requires NO MOLDING and NO ADJUSTMENT so is ready for IMMEDIATE USE,which makes it ideal for those who grind or clench their teeth and/or suffer pain from TMJ Disorder (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder).
These are just a few of the reasons that make it the first choice for diagnosis and treatment of Sleep Disorders, Snoring, Teeth Grinding and TMJ Disorder under the direction of your Doctor or Dentist!
