TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have had symptoms like pain or a "clicking" sound, you'll be glad to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past.
People with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have disrupted sleep and low blood oxygen levels. When obstructive sleep apnea occurs, the tongue is sucked against the back of the throat. This blocks the upper airway and airflow stops. When the oxygen level in the brain becomes low enough, the sleeper partially awakens, the obstruction in the throat clears, and the flow of air starts again, usually with a loud gasp.
The Facial Pain Center is a team of dentists who work collaboratively with physicians, physical therapists, and psychologists to evaluate, diagnose, and treat people with pain and dysfunction of the Temporomandibular Joints and other facial pain, including headaches, neck pain, ear pain, and neuropathic (nerve) pain of dental or non-dental origin. We develop a comprehensive, integrated, and highly individualized treatment plan to address your problem(s). This also includes teaching you important skills that help you long-term to maintain the improvement of your symptoms and pain.
Our practice is also devoted to the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Following your sleep evaluation, your physician may recommend a treatment plan that includes a dental sleep appliance to help manage your condition. We'll discuss your condition and create a customized appliance that fits your individual needs based on the results of your sleep study.
Many adults and many children suffer from bad breath (halitosis). Because it nearly always originates from the mouth, it can and should be diagnosed and treated professionally by dentists. Our dentists use clinical protocol for diagnosing and treating chronic halitosis, which is highly effective, reliable and leads to long-term patient satisfaction.
