After diagnosis comes treatment. Here at the Sleep Apnea Center of Michigan, we specialize in the treatment of children with TMD, facial pain, and teeth grinding; interestingly, the treatment for these symptoms is often quite similar to the treatment of children with obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA. The two are inter-related and often times co-exist. Not many dentists or specialists realize this, but we do.

Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is often the cause of many headaches in children. The good news is that such grinding and clenching in children can be cured. We can expertly evaluate and determine the cause of your child’s head and facial pain problems and provide treatment.

Every child we treat here is different, and thus every treatment plan will be different. If you are looking for treatment for chronic facial, head, jaw, or migraine pain in Michigan for your child, it’s wise to partner with the best craniofacial pain treatment provider in the area. Specialists like Dr. Roman Sadikoff from the Sleep Apnea Center of Michigan specialize in the treatment of pediatric temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) and head/facial pain, as well as sleep disorders such as sleep apnea.

Treatment for Your Child

Once we have provided your child with a diagnosis, we will discuss an individualized treatment solution. Our non-surgical treatments concentrate on optimal healing and restoration of function within a pain-free experience. Treatment options for your child may include:

  • Non-surgical rehab
  • Custom orthodontic appliances to be worn at night
  • Decompression appliance therapy (short-term use of custom orthopedic oral orthotics)
  • Physical therapy
  • Multi-discipline coordination of referrals
  • Nutritional counseling

Here at the Sleep Apnea Center of Michigan, we realize your child’s symptoms aren’t happening in a vacuum. There are usually other issues at play, from TMJ issues to sleep apnea and more. While other dentists treat them separately, we don’t. We understand, from our years of training, that they’re connected, which is why we gear our treatment programs to both.
