These custom oral appliances are designed to alleviate jaw tension and properly open the airway without causing discomfort or obstruction while sleeping.
Teeth grinding, also referred to by its specific name of bruxism involves the grinding or clenching of teeth while sleeping, but can also occur during the day. This can be caused by a variety of things including stress, anxiety, sleep disorders, abnormal bite, or by missing or crooked teeth. Not only is this condition harmful to the teeth itself, but it also often leaves the patient with sore jaw muscles, stiff necks, and even chronic headaches.
In addition to custom appliances for the treatment of bruxism and snoring, Dr. Kawakami also creates custom mouth guards for athletes who want to protect their teeth during sports like football, basketball, lacrosse, hockey, soccer, and more.
Dr. Kawakami has completed extensive training and study in solutions for TMJ treatment and head and neck pain. He is uniquely familiar with the issues that patients mainly face with facial, neck, or head pain and has helped hundreds of patients finally lead a pain-free life with healthier teeth as well. Many of Dr. Kawakami’s staff have been with him for 10 or more years lending stability and a friendly smile to the practice.
Dr. Sam Kawakami has more than three decades of experience as a dental professional and is a member of several professional dental associations, including the ADA, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, National Leadership Award, and National Congressional Committee.
