Trouble sleeping at night? Do you wake up tired? You could have an underlying sleep issue!
Insomnia, snoring, bruxism (tooth grinding), and sleep apnoea are often considered the most common sleep issues. Luckily, if you have trouble sleeping, snoring, or grinding your teeth, your dentist may be able to help (or refer you to someone who can).
Ways to fix your sleep issue
Sleep issues have many different causes. Firstly, causes can be managed by going to bed earlier or simply purchasing a different pillow or mattress. Another way could be avoiding technology and caffeine before bed. However, sleep apnoea, snoring, and bruxism (tooth grinding) usually require making an appointment with your doctor or dentist to be checked out.
