Is Your Oral Health Keeping You Up at Night?

Struggling to get a good night’s sleep? The root cause could be closer than you think—even right inside your mouth. Poor oral health is often an overlooked factor in sleep disturbances.

Here’s how your dental well-being might be affecting your sleep and what you can do about it.

The Connection Between Oral Health and Sleep

Good oral health impacts more than just your teeth and gums; it can also be a significant factor in achieving restful sleep. Issues like tooth pain, snoring, jaw disorders, or even nighttime teeth grinding can disrupt your sleep without you reali[z]ing it.

Signs That Dental Issues Are Disrupting Your Sleep

If you wake up with a sore jaw or a headache, it might be due to grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw at night—a condition known as bruxism. Additionally, untreated dental issues like cavities or gum disease can cause discomfort that might wake you up or prevent you from falling asleep.

If you or your partner are prone to snoring, you might benefit from an oral appliance designed to gently shift the lower jaw forward and open your airways for a more peaceful night of rest. Ask us for more information at your next visit.
