Many of the joys in life, like eating and laughter, can be hindered by jaw pain. Here at Koala® Center For Sleep & TMJ Disorders, we aim to relieve jaw pain by addressing the underlying causes, not just the symptoms. With simple oral appliance therapy, we can help you restore normal function to your jaw, reducing or even eliminating chronic pain. We welcome you to reach out to us for details, or read on to learn more about jaw pain, its causes, and who can treat it for you!
Jaw pain can be complicated, but in most cases, it’s caused by tension or dysfunction in the temporomandibular joint (the TMJ). When patients experience this, it’s often because of the tendons, ligaments, muscles, and/or bones in the area. The dysfunction is known as TMJ disorder or TMD, and yes, it is the most common cause of jaw pain. It’s also our focus here at Koala® Center For Sleep & TMJ Disorders.
Because these professionals understand jaw and TMJ issues especially well, they’re especially qualified to help you. These professionals understand the many different causes of and contributors to jaw issues, such as chewing too much gum or eating too many tough foods. The professionals also understand TMJ issues and disorders especially well.
If your jaw pain doesn’t go away or is affecting your sleep, or if you’ve already tried certain medications and they just don’t work, then you might need to speak with a doctor about it. Some patients even experience sleep disorders, like sleep apnea, that are caused by a TMJ disorder. If your pain and/or sleep issues are caused by a TMD, then you definitely need professional care.
When you come see us for care here at Koala® Center For Sleep & TMJ Disorders, we’ll perform a thorough examination of your jaw, and if you have an issue or TMJ disorder, we’ll be able to treat it for you. In fact, the treatment we provide is very easy and effective, often reducing symptoms by 90%. Also, it’s very likely that your insurance will cover the costs involved.
One of the absolute most effective treatment methods available is oral appliance therapy. With this kind of therapy, patients use a simple oral appliance which helps the jaw to relax and rest naturally. And because the appliance is custom-made, it’s very comfortable for patients. Oral appliance therapy is approved by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and we’re proud to provide it for our patients at Koala® Center For Sleep & TMJ Disorders.
