Not sleeping well? It may be your teeth!

There are many reasons why people do not experience a good night’s sleep. One of them could be Bruxism “teeth grinding”. Bruxism is usually caused by stress and is often associated with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Most people are not aware of their bruxism during sleep and wake up tired or feel fatigued throughout their day. During the deepest part of your sleep, your muscles are supposed to relax. If you grind your teeth, your jaw is working overtime, causing you to never fall into a deep sleep. At AZTMJ, Dr. Stan Farrell has extensive training in sleep medicine, making him one of the best choices for your sleep bruxism and temporomandibular joint disorder treatment. Dr. Stan Farrell also uses the most effective methods of treatment and works diligently to erase the pain caused by TMD in the lives of his patients. If you or someone you know is clinching and or grinding your teeth, and are starting to experience jaw pain or headaches, please schedule an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Stan Farrell at 480-945-3629 or visit us online at for more information.
