What Is TMJ/TMD?
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a small joint located in front of the ear where your skull and lower jaw meet.
Patients often complain of ear pain, headaches and limited jaw movement. They may also complain of popping, clicking or grating sounds in the joint and feel pain when opening and closing their mouth.
We have found our multi-faceted approach to be successful in reducing pain, dysfunction, and improving quality of life for our patients.
Your Pain Isn’t Permanent
We’ve helped patients find relief after years of pain.
Most of our headache patients have seen multiple providers, tried many medications, and have still found little relief. Since many headaches are triggered and maintained by muscle, nerve, or joint problems in the head and neck region, decreasing and controlling these triggers can reduce the frequency and/or intensity of the headaches. This approach has resulted in great success in treating resistant cases.

Sleep Apnea & Snoring
Sleep Apnea is a disorder in which a person’s ability to breathe during sleep is impaired, resulting in restless sleep and remaining tired all the time. If the patient has sleep apnea, repositioning the jaw during sleep may further assist in opening the airway.
A Sleep Apnea Appliance may be an alternative to patients that cannot tolerate a Positive Airway Pressure unit (CPAP). In many cases, it can be used with a CPAP to improve its performance. We determine the best type of appliance for each individual.
