The American Sleep Apnea Association estimates that around 22 million people in the U.S suffer from sleep apnea. However, an insurmountable amount of evidence shows that this sleeping problem can be linked to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. TMJ-caused sleep apnea manifests breathing difficulties due to airway blockage. If left untreated, this condition may result in deadly complications, such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and more.
At DNTL, our team specializes in conducting surgical and other interventions to treat TMJ disorder and sleep apnea. We have state-of-the-art equipment that helps us diagnose and identify the right procedures to take. We may also recommend oral appliance therapy (based on individual needs) to position the jaw correctly while sleeping.
