From recurring headaches and jaw pain to face tingling and even eye pain, Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) can manifest itself in a number of distressing symptoms. Many people don’t even realize their head and facial pain stems from jaw problems, or even sleep apnea for that matter, but the truth is, they’re all connected.

Headaches, Craniofacial Pain, and TMJ/TMD are part of a specialty bridging the divide between medicine and dentistry. Many of our patients say they were unsure who to contact regarding their symptoms: A primary care physician? A dentist? A surgeon? An ENT doctor? Their quest often sends them on a wild good chase for solutions.
Adding to the confusion is the fact that migraines, headaches, ear pain, eye pain and dizziness can all stem from different areas of the head and neck. Thus, it’s a challenge to determine which doctor is the best option. Dr. Roman Sadikoff is an excellent choice, as he is extensively trained in sleep-related breathing disorders and craniofacial pain.
In fact, he provides treatment of TMJ disorders, facial pain and sleep apnea right in his office.
