About TMJ

TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint, or the jaw joint.

Sleep Disorders

Snoring is to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) as thunder is to lightning.

Orthodontics

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with the proper positioning of jaws and teeth.

Sleep Apnea

The dental solution to treating obstructive sleep apnea is to utilize a comfortable, removable oral appliance. The oral appliance is an articulated elastomeric mandibular advancement appliance. This dental device is designed to allow the advancement of the mandible through a controlled range of forward movement, while at the same time allowing for a limited amount of vertical and lateral movement of the mandible. This type of appliance has proven extremely effective in treating snoring and sleep apnea.

TMJ Disorders

When an occlusion problem or tissue damage to the head, neck and facial area is diagnosed, it is important to have an evaluation by a trained and qualified TMD dentist. Our office performs a full examination of the TM joints, head, neck and facial region, as well as X-rays and occasionally MRI evaluation. We are able to objectively determine the pathological nature and extent of joint sounds and injuries to the TM joint area to arrive at a realistic prognosis. Frequently, a custom-made orthotic (“splint”) is prescribed for orthopedic and musculoskeletal stabilization.
