Headaches, teeth clinching, waking up in the middle of the night – it’s probably just stress, right? Maybe not, it could be a sign of a breathing disorder.
Breathing disorders are frequently one of the underlying causes of a variety of symptoms ranging from dry mouth to high blood pressure.
Dr. Dunia Korous and the staff at Millennium Smiles recently returned from a continuing education seminar in California focusing on breathing disorders (such as sleep apnea) and TMJ disorders.
Millennium Smiles already offers advanced oral appliance therapy to treat sleep apnea. Dr. Korous is committed to learning the latest advancements in treating breathing disorders because she takes a holistic approach to health. Dr. Korous wants her patients to have more than healthy teeth, she wants them to live healthy lives.
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms below, be sure to watch the video at the end of the post to learn why you may have a breathing disorder.
Additionally, children who have difficulties with bed wetting or have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder could have a breathing disorder.
