Treat Sleep Apnea
At DeMartino Dental Group, P.C. we have a special X-ray that allows us to see the jaw joint itself. This helps us diagnose your TMJ disorder and create targeted treatment plans to alleviate your discomfort. We can fit our The Lehigh Valley patients with devices designed to prevent you from clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth. We offer the best TMJ options available, including NTI and soft nightguards for bruxism (teeth grinding), and other mouthpieces. At our office, we also provide massage therapy for your jaw joints. Massage therapy is an excellent option for patients who want additional treatments for TMJ, or who want alternatives to wearing appliances.
Oral Appliances for Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a condition where a patient experiences abnormal pauses in breathing during nightly rest. Symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, gasping or choking, waking up with a dry mouth or sore throat, and chronic daytime sleepiness. Most patients who suffer from sleep apnea are unaware that they have the condition. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, untreated sleep apnea increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and diabetes. If you or a loved one has sleep apnea, then call us now for testing and treatment of this serious condition.
