TMJ Therapy / Snore Guards
Over 50 million Americans annually have headaches so severe that they seek medical help. Most of these people state that their head pain is a disruptive force in their daily lives. The majority of these patients suffer from Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ).
TMJ is a group of separate but related disorders of the temporomandibular joint and all the associated muscles, ligaments, nerves, etc. Unfortunately, TMJs are the most frequently misdiagnosed of the medical/dental conditions.

Most people find they become accustomed to a corrective or protective dental appliance in a very short period of time. Any custom dental appliance you might need will be included in your treatment plan and thoroughly discussed with you.
