TMJ Treatment

If you’ve been experiencing jaw pain, headaches, or discomfort, you may be dealing with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues. TMJ disorders can affect your jaw’s movement and cause discomfort. At Seven Pines Dental, our TMJ treatments are designed to alleviate pain and improve jaw function. We educate our patients on the causes of TMJ disorders, emphasizing the role of stress, teeth grinding, and misalignment. Discover how personalized TMJ treatments can bring relief and restore harmony to your jaw.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a widespread but often undiagnosed condition that can lead to serious health issues. At Seven Pines Dental, we recognize the importance of addressing this silent epidemic. With over 12 million Americans estimated to have obstructive sleep apnea, our team educates patients about its potential consequences, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular diseases. We offer oral appliances as a primary therapy, especially for those with mild to moderate sleep apnea or those unable to tolerate CPAP treatment. Learn how our dental expertise contributes to a better night’s sleep and improved overall health.

Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding, or bruxism is a common issue that affects about 10% of the population, often occurring subconsciously during sleep. Waking up with a sore jaw or headaches are telltale signs of nighttime grinding. At Seven Pines Dental, we educate our patients on the potential damage caused by this habit, emphasizing the strength of jaw muscles and the importance of protection. Discover how a custom oral appliance can safeguard your teeth from excessive wear, providing a simple yet effective solution to this widespread issue.

You Might Be Asking Yourself:

Use Side-to-Side Movements. Doing so can help relieve pressure while strengthening the TMJ muscles.
Whether or not it can be cured completely depends entirely on what exactly is causing the pain in the first place. Some forms of TMJ may be curable, while for others, sufferers may only be able to manage the pain.
While there is no cure for sleep apnea, studies show that certain lifestyle factors can reverse or make your sleep apnea less intense.
Teeth grinding (bruxism) is involuntary clenching, grinding, and gnashing of the teeth that usually happens during sleep. Causes can include stress, concentration, and use of illegal drugs.
