TMJ Disorder Treatment
Temporomandibular joint disorder is a condition that can affect your everyday life by causing pain and discomfort in your head, neck, and other areas of your body. Symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, jaw popping, numbness in the arms and fingers, and other issues. Dr. Trichas offers a variety of treatment options that can alleviate the effects of the condition.
If you snore or experience breathing pauses while you sleep, you may be suffering from sleep apnea, a condition that can lead to serious health risks – such as heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, memory loss, even sudden cardiac death. Dr. Trichas offers treatment options including customized oral appliances to help you achieve a safer flow of air through your breathing passages and a more restful night’s sleep.
Snore guards worn while you sleep can help you (and possibly those around you) attain a healthier and more peaceful slumber. The customized appliances promote a clear airway for breathing by improving the alignment of your jaw and tongue, which tend to relax to the point of blocking your throat while sleeping. In addition to working toward the prevention of restricted breathing, snore guards can also reduce teeth clenching and grinding – a condition that can prematurely wear down your teeth. They are custom-designed for ultimate comfort and effectiveness.
Laser dentistry offers a more comfortable process for a variety of treatments. Advanced laser technology can eliminate the need for intimidating dental tools in certain procedures, as well as shorten the recovery time typically needed for more invasive treatments. Our advanced laser systems prove to be beneficial for procedures ranging from gum recontouring to periodontal disease treatment, and even cavity detection. Laser dentistry lessens the risk of potential complications and significantly decreases pain and discomfort typically experienced with more invasive procedures.
Those who are active in sports often have a much higher risk for trauma to the mouth. It is important to protect your teeth from cracks, chips, and serious damage caused by stress-biting or impacts to the face. Our athletic mouthguards are custom-designed for the most comfortable fit while providing strong protection against blows to the mouth that could potentially harm your teeth.
