The Face of TMJ Therapy & Sleep Apnea
Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) affects patients of all ages and is not well understood. “It’s become my mission to teach both patients and doctors what it’s all about,” says Dr. Brown. Symptoms include popping/clicking of the joints, limited opening, headaches, visual disturbances, ear ringing, misaligned bite, teeth grinding, dizziness, hearing problems, eye pain, clogged ears or tightness in the throat.
Sleep apnea is basically sleep-disordered breathing in which you stop breathing several times every hour of the night. This leads to poor quality sleep and eventually can lead to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and even cancer. The two disorders tend to corelate with each other frequently. “We want to educate every person who walks in our door and spread the word to their friends and family.”
