Dr. Jamison R. Spencer gives an in depth look into how bruxism (grinding teeth while sleeping) is a deeper issue than just dealing with dental damage. Dr. Spencer shows how for many, the underlying issue is sleep apnea- a complete cessation of breathing for at least 10 seconds while sleeping. It can occur multiple times an hour, making it difficult to wake up feeling rested and ready for the day.
While many medical professionals will treat the symptoms rather than the problem, Dr. Spencer teaches you how to look deeper for the cause of bruxism. This will give you a better idea on how to treat it, and hopefully get rid of the problem for good. Not everyone takes the time to dig deeper, which can set you apart from other dentists.
