Obstructive Sleep Apnea

TMJ Sleep Apnea
Many people do not realize that temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ, can be a symptom of sleep apnea. This is because with sleep apnea your throat collapses and then your mouth is moving to keep your airway open. This can cause misalignment of your jaw, grinding your teeth (bruxism). In addition, your TMJ related pain has you using pain medication and these drugs often contribute to sleep apnea. It’s important for anyone with TMJ to be evaluated for sleep apnea by a TMJ & Sleep doctor as this related condition can easily go undiagnosed and untreated. Your untreated sleep apnea increases your high blood pressure and more than doubles (2.4x) your risk for heart attack and stroke.

Thanks to recent advancements in dentistry, there are now effective sleep treatment options for sleep apnea whether you have TMJ or not. These treatments involve wearing an oral appliance instead of a CPAP machine while sleeping. This keeps your airway open and lets air flow from your nose to your lungs properly. If you have tried other methods of managing sleep apnea without success, a TMJ-based treatment can provide you with much-needed relief.
