Commonly, TMJ doctors treat TMJ disorder and related issues with oral appliance therapy. It works by helping the jaw rest naturally and preventing the conditions that typically cause the disorder and issues. In many cases, symptoms can be reduced by 90%, so the therapy can be especially effective for many patients. In fact, the therapy is approved by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and recommended by our TMJ doctors here at Koala® Center for Sleep & TMJ Disorders! You can be confident oral appliance therapy will work for you just as it has for our many other patients.
