Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction may result in many debilitating chronic and/or acute symptoms such as:
- Facial pain,
- Headaches and migraines
- Pain when chewing, swallowing and/or speaking
- Difficulty falling and staying asleep.
There are a variety of modalities of treatment that can effectively manage these symptoms. The key is a comprehensive evaluation and an accurate diagnosis of the presenting condition.
Patients presenting with a diagnosis of sleep apnea through their sleep physician may benefit from an oral appliance, but once again, a thorough evaluation of their condition and craniofacial structures is mandatory.
Our Dentists have completed a 3-month mini-residency and a 6-month residency in the diagnosis and treatment of TMD and sleep disorders through Dr. Steven Olmos’s TMJ &Sleep Therapy Research Centre.
