Oromyofacial Issues and Sleeping Problems
Have you ever analyzed your sleep?
Many people say, ‘I sleep just fine!’ without recognizing the warning signs that not all is well. It has become normal, for example, to have partners who snore, children who sleep with their mouths open, or people in the home who struggle unknowingly with obstructive sleep apnea, upper airway resistance syndrome, or simple chronic congestion. Just because something is common, does not make it normal or healthy.
How we sleep drives the way we feel during the day. When mouth breathing and/or snoring at night, our body has poorer oxygenation and blood circulation than if we are breathing properly through our nose.
How we sleep matters!

How We Can Help
All our sleep-disordered patients – infants, children, or adults – will sleep better. Through questionnaires, case history, and sometimes audio or video recording, we analyze sleep patterns and quality to paint a picture of each person’s unique presentation. We case-manage and coordinate care to treat even acute or severe syndromes. Common treatments for sleep apnea are mandibular advancement orthotic devices and continuous positive air pressure (CPAP) machines. If possible, through therapy, we reduce dependency on these devices, and even obviate them if we can. This involves a careful re-education, balancing, strengthening, and coordination of body posture, respiratory muscles, and oropharynx. For many patients, we successfully treat and discharge in as little as 3 - 4 months.
Talk, eat, sleep, breathe better.
