TMJ & Sleep Therapy

If you are suffering from jaw or head pain, you may be experiencing problems with your jaw joint. When the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) becomes misaligned and starts to have trouble working properly, the jaw joint and surrounding muscles begin to be compromised and it can lead to a lot of discomfort. 

Symptoms of TMD may Include:

  • Clicking or Locking Jaw
  • Pain in Face, Ear or Neck
  • Constant Headaches
  • Difficulty Chewing
  • Jaw Pain

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea can cause many side effects including loud snoring, trouble breathing while you sleep and morning headaches. Obstructive sleep apnea happens when the airways are not open properly while you sleep.This is often because soft tissues in the mouth and throat fall in and block airflow. A customized mouthguard can also help with sleep apnea by opening the airways. Dr. Hughes is one out of only 12 people in America researching with Harvard University to cure pediatric obstructive sleep apnea.
