TMD/TMJ Devices in Ottawa

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects the temporal bone of your jaw to your lower skull. Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) can cause chronic pain in this area, causing severe pain and discomfort, and leading to other symptoms, such as headaches and difficulty opening and closing the jaw.

What Causes TMD?

Sleep apnea is treated with oral devices designed to help you breathe easier at night. These devices keep your jaw in a position that allows for better airflow. Many also work to relieve snoring that is not associated with sleep apnea.

Devices for Sleep Apnea and Snoring

CPAP machines are often recommended for moderate to severe cases of sleep apnea. However, these machines are not always a good choice, depending on your level of sleep apnea and lifestyle. If you have already tried CPAP therapy and weren’t happy with the results, ask us about custom snoring and sleep apnea devices. Our dental team will recommend a suitable sleep apnea device for your needs.
