What we do.


TMJ/TMD -- 'TMJ' are the initials for Temporomandibular joint, which is the 'jaw joint'.  TMD stand for Temporomandibular Dysfunction, or problems in the TMJ area.
     If you have a 'clicking jaw' or noisy closure, and you do not have problems, then you fall into our area.  The general rule is 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it.'  If you are concerned, it is best to put your mind at ease and make an appointment.  This can set a base line, so there is a record if problem occur in the future. 
     If you are having problems, such as pain, it can mean many things.  It is good advice to have your regular dentist check and if need be referred to a dentist who specializes in this area.


Head and Neck Pain -- The is an area that can often be affected by accidents -- sometimes as simple as a fall at home.  It can be simple, or serious.  Always check with your physician, then if there is still a problem it could possibly related to your teeth/jaw.


Snoring -- Again this can be very serious or just plain annoying to both you or your spouse.  It can be a sign of sleep apnea, which is always serious and should be checked by your physician who will most likely have you get further studies at a sleep lab. 
     If it is simple there are many things that can be done.  RFV adjustments (see Home Page and Sight Map) often help, as does a dental orthotic or splint


Sleep Apnea - Always serious.  Although we see patients for a general checkup in this area, we do not treat patients with sleep apnea unless they are referred from a physician/or after they have sought advice from their physician.  It is wise to get checked out by a sleep lab.  Sleep apnea can lead to many serious physical problems and even death.  Be wise, check first with your physician because if you come to us first, we will recommend you be checked out medically before we will consider taking your case on. 
     If you are referred to us, there are wonderful dental appliances that have great success in this area.  Like any appliance, it is necessary to have follow up visits and routine checks, even being referred back to your physician and sleep lab tests.
