What you can expect at your first appointment:
You will be spending 90 minutes with us at your first appointment. We will be reviewing your health history; the history of your TMJ and/or sleep apnea issue and gathering any information relevant to your situation. We want to provide you with the information necessary to make a smart decision about your health.
We will be performing computer aided joint vibration analysis (JVA); neurologic testing to verify the site of your injury; familiar tests such as temperature and blood pressure; a dental and muscular examination; and 3D radiographic imaging.
We request that you bring any relevant information with you to the appointment. This includes: previous sleep test results; any existing appliances you have worn; reports from previous doctor visits directly related to your TMJ/sleep issue; any imaging you may have had.
Further information may be needed to finalize your diagnosis, such as a sleep test to verify or rule out suspected sleep apnea.
You will receive a working diagnosis and treatment recommendation at the end of your initial appointment.
We will review the cost of your treatment and financial arrangement alternatives.
It is our goal to determine the source of your issue and offer workable solutions.
