How Do I Know I Have Sleep Apnea?
Chronic snoring is the main indicator of sleep apnea and must be evaluated by a doctor. If you have sleep apnea, you are understandably sleep deprived. You likely have difficulty concentrating, depression, irritability, learning and memory difficulties, and daytime fatigue, says the National Sleep Foundation. If this is true of you, or any of these warning signs, book a consultation with our sleep apnea clinic in Michigan:
- Trouble concentrating
- Loss of memory
- Loud and frequent snoring
- Silent pauses in breathing
- Choking or gasping
- Daytime fatigue
- Unrefreshing sleep
- Morning headaches
- Nocturia (getting up frequently in the night to use the bathroom)
- Lowered sexual desire
Traditional treatment is a CPAP machine, or continuous positive airway pressure device. This is basically a mask that fits over the nose and/or mouth, gently puffing air into the airway to help keep it open at night while you sleep. And while surgery is certainly another option, there are other, less invasive ways to find relief. We offer an oral sleep apnea treatment device that keeps the airway from collapsing by sliding the jaw forward or by holding the tongue in position. In turn, this will help you breathe more easily during sleep.
How Do I Know I Need TMJ Treatment?
Your jaw may pop or click when you open your mouth too wide, such as while yawning or eating. At other times, it can result from issues regarding the functioning of the temporomandibular joints or the joints responsible for connecting the jawbone to the sides of your skull.
You may have frequent headaches, with craniofacial pain limiting your quality of life. TMD, short for temporomandibular joint disorder, can cause:
- Jaws that “lock” in a closed or open position
- Pain and discomfort
- Tenderness in the face or jaw
- Trouble opening the mouth wide
- Difficulty eating
- Neck aches
- Ear aches
- Swelling of the face
If this is happening to you, contact us for TMJ and sleep apnea treatment in Michigan, where we have developed a system for diagnosing and treating craniofacial pain, including facial pain, joint pain, ear pain, and migraines using natural means.
