Effective TMD & Sleep Apnea Treatment in Pleasanton, CA
TMD (Temporomandibular Disorders)
TMD refers to a number of conditions affecting the jaw joint (the TMJ) and/or the muscles, as well as the surrounding tissues. Dr. Tadros evaluates and treats conditions that cause pain in the face or jaw joint area, plus headaches, earaches, dizziness, painful chewing, limited mouth opening, locking of the jaw joint, abnormal wear and fractures of teeth, clicking or popping sounds in the jaw joint and other complaints. His treatment modalities will vary depending on the underlying causes and symptoms presented by each patient.
Sleep Apnea & Stop Snoring Treatment Devices
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine now recommends oral appliances as a front line of treatment for snoring and sleep apnea and for people who cannot tolerate CPAP devices. Oral appliances have several advantages:
- They fit entirely inside the mouth.
- They do not make any noise that might disturb a sleeping partner.
- They allow the wearer to change sleep positions easily & naturally.
- They are portable & can be used when traveling.
- They have no special parts that need cleaning or replacement.
The appliance (sometimes called a night guard) works by opening the bite and gently advancing the lower jaw with interchangeable elastic straps to increase airway space. These custom appliances are only available through medical and dental professionals. So when you want to sleep easier and more safely at night, look to Dr. Tadros for relief.
