Snoring, Sleep Apnea, Headaches and TMD In Trappe

Snoring, sleep apnea, headaches and TMD in Trappe can be causing you problems with your health. Recently the American Association of Sleep Medicine has recognized dental appliances as a reasonable alternative to the CPAP in cases of mild to moderate sleep apnea. While the CPAP is still the gold standard there are situations where people can’t or won’t wear it. We are able to screen for sleep apnea with a take home monitor and can monitor the oral appliances to ensure that they are working optimally either for snoring or sleep apnea

TMD, Headaches In Trappe 

Many people suffer from TMD, headaches, jaw pain, and sensitive teeth, which in a lot of cases is caused by night time grinding or clenching. During sleep people will clench their teeth much more forcefully than they would ever want to when awake. The muscles in the head and jaw become over worked and they start to develop soreness, this soreness is what causes headaches, most of the times these headaches occur on the side of the head near the temple. One of the largest jaw muscles is in that area, the Temporalis, the other large jaw muscle, the Masseter, is located on the side of the jaw. These two muscles are the ones that bulge when the jaw is clenched. Other jaw muscles become involved and can mimic sinus pressure and pain. The teeth will become painful to chewing and temperature from being clenched so much and so forcefully. Night time clenching can also cause people to not sleep well and they wake up tired and with a headache. Dr Funk uses a night time appliance called an “NTI” which is a small appliance that fits over the front teeth only and absolutely stops clenching and grinding enabling the muscles to rest at night and eliminate headaches, jaw pain, and help improve one’s quality of life. You are not supposed to suffer from headaches in the morning, your jaws should not be tired, you should not always be dealing with the pain and distraction that headaches cause. Dr Funk has many satisfied patients whose quality of life has been changed by using the NTI on a nightly basis.
