Hey, we get it! Life is stressful but let's not take it out on our teeth. ⠀
Grinding your teeth (AKA Bruxism) is common but left untreated can cause a number of problems such as TMJ (temporomandibular joint), headaches, earaches, migraines, disrupted sleep, lack of quality sleep, and the loss of the integrity of your teeth. ⠀
A couple of treatment options are available for this condition, such as wearing a nightguard when sleeping (most likely to grind), and Botox (to relax the muscles around the jaw. ⠀
If you are a grinder, we would be happy to set you up with a consultation to discuss how we can help. 👄🦷😤 #gracesundds ⠀

When did this face get so grey 😭😭😭😭😭 i was looking at his adoption papers and noticed that he'd been picked up as a wandering stray skinny little muffin by the dog warden in liverpool 6 years ago today! Adopted by me a couple months later. What kind of mysterious life did he lead prior to that - I'll never know 🧙♂️ #hamish#dogsofinstgram#oldmanpuppy#snoring#adoptdontshop#merseysidedogshome

There are a few things in medicine that I jump on my soap box for and sleep apnea is one of them. It not only affects the cardiopulmonary system, and it not only affects fat old men. In fact, you don’t even have to be a heavy snorer to have sleep apnea! Sleep apnea is notoriously under diagnosed, and I’d like to be one of the practitioners changing this.
Every single system in the body is affected by sleep disturbance and the lack of oxygen resulting from sleep apnea. Of course it can contribute to heart disease, but it can also make you lose your erections, lose your hair, weaken your bones, make you depressed, and make you gain weight via satiety, stress & thyroid hormones going awry.
Starving our tissues of oxygen for a good 7-8 hours nightly just isn’t cool & too many of us are walking around with this undiagnosed.
I’m super excited to have this resource available to both existing and new patients. Here’s to better sleep, better breathing, and better health! 🛏 👩🏻⚕️
“I just don’t know what to do anymore,” I told my husband over the phone. .. He is just not himself anymore – he is getting upset about little things, he is grumpy all the time, and his behavior is just… off. He is misbehaving more & more. I don’t know what to do to help him.”
Little did we know that the time that our son’s sleep disorder was being disguised as ADHD or a behavior problem.
This story of this frustrated mom is far too common and so very heartbreaking.
Studies have been done, where they took medicated ADHD kids, fixed the sleep disordered breathing, and within 6 months 70% of the children had seen a resolution in symptoms and were no longer medicated. This means that 70% of those children had been misdiagnosed with ADHD when they actually had a treatable sleep disorder.
If your child or someone you know or love is having behavioral issues… we urge you to please have them tested for sleep apnea before starting any form of medication to possibly treat a problem they may not have. Ask us how we can help.
