Sleep & TMJ Therapy
Getting to the root of jaw discomfort and sleeping problems is Dr. Jeffrey Brown’s focus. His practice, Sleep & TMJ Therapy, uses non-surgical strategies to help those with craniofacial pain and sleep-related problems. His mission is to provide the best possible conservative, customized and pain-free treatment plan.
Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, known as TMJ or TMD, is an internal imbalance of the jaw joints that can cause symptoms throughout the body, including popping and clicking, limited mouth opening, ringing in the ears, headaches, even neck and back pain. In his practice, these conditions can be treated with either a lower or upper appliance to take pressure off the joints and to allow for the discs to move back into the correct place. In addition, the appliance therapy aligns and levels the cranium, achieving an internal balance and symmetry that helps patients feel much better.
To address sleep issues, customized dental appliances are used to promote healthier breathing habits by supporting the jaw and opening the airway. This supports reductions in symptoms of snoring, interrupted breathing, fatigue, irritability and headaches.
“The team truly enjoys seeing patients get their lives back, resume normal activities and sleep better. That is what it’s all about!” says Dr. Brown.
Dr. Brown is a graduate of Georgetown Dental School and a sought-after international speaker for TMD and sleep apnea. He holds memberships with many academies, is a Fellow of the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain and a Legacy Provider of the ALF Interface Academy.
