Orofacial Pain & Sleep Apnea
1 in 3 people suffer from undetected orofacial pain, which refers to pain in the mouth, jaw, and face. The study of orofacial pain is a new speciality that is slowly gaining traction in the industry. So, when a patient is suffering from a tooth ache, we evaluate the tooth and the muscles, joints, and nerves of the head and neck to identify the true source of the tooth ache. Often times, patients are misdiagnosed, with the true source going undetected, and they return with the same issue. Our goal is to eliminate the pain at its true origin so that the patient gets the right treatment.
22 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea. Patients suffer from a variety of sleep related health issues, including, but not limited to, snoring, teeth grinding, clenching, diabetes, and heart disease. Studies have shown that driving while sleep deprived is similar to driving under the influence. We will work with a team of doctors, including your physician, an ENT specialist and a neurologist, in order to improve the quality of your overall health.
