Will TMJ Treatment Relieve Pressure?
Yes. Because every jaw is different, we take a customized approach for every patient. With proper TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) treatment, you will…
- Be relieved of pressure in your face, mouth and jaw
- Improve your overall balance
- Prevent nighttime grinding which can wear away the surface of your teeth
- Eliminate oral pain that makes it difficult to chew, swallow and speak correctly
- Protect your teeth from fractures
- Eliminate headaches and earaches
- No longer feel dizzy throughout the day
- Enjoy quality sleep with no pain or discomfort
- Increase mobility of the joints in your jaw
There are many ways to treat TMJ problems, such as orthodontic treatment or an occlusal guard, which is a removable device that fits over the teeth to prevent you from grinding and clenching during sleep. About 95 percent of patients get relief with TMJ treatment, so whether you’ve lived with jaw pain for many years or you just started feeling discomfort, we can help.
How Can I Fix Sleep Apnea?
Oral appliance therapy is recommended for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea, and for those who cannot tolerate CPAP machines (continuous positive airway pressure) or who don’t want to resort to surgery. In essence, oral appliances are designed to open your throat by bringing your jaw forward, which may relieve snoring and mild obstructive sleep apnea, says the Mayo Clinic.
A dental professional trained in sleep medicine, such as Dr. Sadikoff, can custom fit this type of appliance to your mouth. It looks and acts like a sports mouth guard but it’s custom made and is designed specifically for sleep apnea problems.
