Brentwood, CA area dentist offers therapy options for TMJ headaches and obstructive sleep apnea

Posted By

When it comes to dentistry, there is much more to just cleanings and examinations every six months. Some patients deal with specific medical and health conditions that can impact their smile’s appearance and overall health. Drs. Jamil Alkhoury and Diana Belli of Brentwood Family Dental in Brentwood, CA are pleased to offer treatments for other conditions including chronic headaches, TMJ/TMD, bruxism, and obstructive sleep apnea. All of these might benefit from oral appliance therapy, which is a highly desirable and reliable method of therapy for patients experiencing these problems.

  • Bruxism – Bruxism is a condition that causes patients to clench and grind their teeth. This may result in broken teeth and restorations, as well as unwanted wear on natural tooth enamel. With an oral appliance, patients can protect their teeth and restorations while also reducing tension.
  • TMJ/TMD – the temporomandibular joint is the joint that hinges the upper and lower jaw. Sometimes, it becomes problematic and can lock or pop, causing chronic problems known as temporomandibular joint disorder, to TMD. Our practice may suggest an oral appliance that realigns the jaw and can reduce the symptoms of this condition.
  • Chronic headaches and migraines – many times, patients who have chronic headaches and migraines often have a coexisting problem that is often the source of the issue, often bruxism or TMJ that causes tension headaches. By wearing an oral appliance, many patients significantly reduce their discomfort.
  • Obstructive sleep apnea – Obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, is a chronic sleep disorder that is caused by a blockage in the airways. Patients diagnosed with this condition often stop breathing hundreds of times in one night, resulting in the inability to achieve proper rest at night. Daytime fatigue, poor memory and concentration, and headaches are common signs of this condition. With the appropriate mouth guard, many patients can treat their condition and feel better every day with a full night’s sleep!
