Some estimates suggest that over 10 million Americans are affected by TMJ Disorders.
Orthodontic Treatment for TMJ

Temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ, is a painful disorder that's sometimes caused by teeth grinding, jaw misalignments, or overcrowded bites. It's characterized by jaw pain, ear pain, frequent headaches, frequent neck pain, jaw tenderness, difficulty opening and closing your mouth, and a clicking sound when you open your mouth. The good news is that there are a few ways to treat TMJ disorder, and surgery may not be necessary.

TMJ disorder can be treated using a nightguard to prevent teeth grinding. Braces are also a great way to correct any bite issues such as overcrowding or a misaligned jaw that may be causing your TMD disorder. Braces are the ideal choice if you're experiencing jaw pain and frequent headaches. If you're experiencing symptoms of TMJ disorder and you're looking to improve your bite and reduce your pain, reach out to our team at the Orthodontic Wellness
Center today.

Snoring can be defined as the dull/course noise emitting from our throats and nasal passages as we sleep. Snoring can be a relatively harmless annoyance but it can be a chronic problem. Snoring may be an indication of a larger, more serious health problem. These problems could be:

Poor sleep can be detrimental to your health.
Airway and Sleep Screening tools help us evaluate oral posture and screen for obstructive sleep apnea, TMJ issues and jaw retrusion.
Sleep and Airway Screening
Healthy breathing and restful sleep are the foundation that any healthy life is built upon.
We offer a sleep screening tool known as a high-resolution pulse oximetry (HRPO). HRPO results help us to better isolate the particular physiological issues that prevent proper airflow which, in turn, helps us provide a treatment plan that is more likely to result in symptom relief and health improvements.
High-resolution Pulse Oximetry
Chronic sleep interruption and breathing difficulties can lead to a variety of diseases and chronic conditions.
Do patients ever need orthognathic surgery to get the best possible health outcome?
Generally speaking snoring is a big symptom of OSA, but snoring by itself does not necessarily mean an individual has OSA. But if you snore AND have these symptoms it is possible you are suffering from OSA
Specific exercises are deployed to posture the tongue properly and position the jaws more optimally. When effective Oral Myofacial Therapy can help patients relieve symptoms and improve overall health and wellness without more intrusive treatments.

We want our customers to feel welcome in our office. We encourage all parents/caregivers to accompany the child to the appointment as direct involvement of parents with pediatric patients is the best dynamic for success.
I have years of experience, but I never stop learning. Airway orthodontics and "forwardontics" are my passion, which will be evident at every appointment.
I proudly perform 90% of all direct patient care in my practice – unlike many other offices that delegate most work to dental assistants. This is how I create a long-term bond with my patients, for which I am truly grateful.
