Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) Treatment


Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is disruptive to sleep quality and has been related to multiple debilitating disorders and chronic health problems. Snoring and daytime fatigue are common symptoms. OSA related interruptions in breathing occur during sleep. These disorders are considered musculoskeletal imbalances. A consideration in these problems is improper development and alignment of the upper and lower jaws resulting in tongue and soft tissue blockage of the airway during sleep.



Oral Appliance Therapy for OSA


Oral appliances and adjunct physical medicine aid in maintaining an open airway by reposturing the lower jaw and preventing airway collapse. Oral appliances have been shown to be effective treatment for OSA patients. In some cases oral appliances are used in conjunction with PAP devices. The primary side effect of using an oral device is a change in jaw position with a change in chewing patterns.


Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD/TMJ)

Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD/TMJ) Treatment


Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD/TMJ) can be disruptive while awake and while sleeping. These conditions may coexist with OSA conditions and are considered musculoskeletal imbalances. A consideration in these problems is a mal-alignment of the upper and lower jaws causing muscle and joint imbalances.



Oral Appliance Therapy for TMD/TMJ


Oral appliance therapy and adjunct physical medicine have been shown to be effective in relieving recurrent jaw pain and jaw dysfunction symptoms. These devices are designed to reposture the lower jaw and enhance joint and muscle function. Oral appliances should be worn during sleep and may be modified for use while the patient is awake. The primary side effect of using an oral device is a change in jaw position with a change in chewing patterns.
