TMD is a dysfunction of the temprormandibular joint which can result in chronic pain and some symptoms which masquerade as other problems. Some of the  common symptoms of TMD include:

  • headaches or jaw pain
  • neck, shoulder, arm or back pain or numbness
  • difficulty opening your mouth
  • ear related symptoms such as tinnitus or stuffy ears
  • loss of balance or dizziness
  • movement disorders
  • hypermobility of joints

Sleep apnea is a type of breathing disorder which is a potentially life-threatening condition characterized by brief interruptions of breathing during sleep. Along with the generally decreased quality of life, people who suffer from sleep apnea also experience an increased risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke and depression. You may suffer from sleep apnea if you experience:

  • Loud or chronic snoring
  • Long pauses in breathing during the night
  • Episodes of breathing cessation during sleep
  • Excessive daytime tiredness and irritability

Researchers have recently reported that women suffer from Sleep Apnea as frequently as men do. It also has shown that the symptoms women display are often different from those of men. Women are less likely to exhibit excessive daytime sleepiness/fatigue and more likely to display depression-like behavior often blamed on the hormonal changes associated with menopause. Women also are less frequently aware of their problem as it occurs in REM sleep later at night when their bed partner is in a deep sleep and less likely to be disturbed.

Our St. Charles TMJ and sleep apnea dentists understand the stresses and health risks that come with chronic pain and sleepless nights. We combine years of experience with the latest treatment techniques to help you reduce and even eliminate your sleep problems altogether!

This website was created to educate patients about dental health care, our practice and the services we offer. You will find all of the information you need on these pages about chronic pain therapy,  sleep disordered breathing and the latest techniques and treatment options. We look forward to helping you to gain a better quality of life by addressing the following issues:

  • Sleep apnea

  • TMD
  • CPAP Intolerance

Our goal at TMJ and Sleep Therapy Centre of Chicago is to help people who have chronic pain or suffer with sleep disorders to  find real solutions to their sleep and pain  problems and regain refreshing sleep in order to improve their overall health and quality of life. If sleep apnea or severe snoring affects you or someone you know, you should not delay treatment.
