Temporomandibular Join Disorders (TMJ-TMD) is a disorder that may cause jaw pain, dizziness and headaches and results from a problem with the jaw, joint joint and surrounding facial muscles. Symptoms may include biting or chewing difficulty/discomfort, clicking or popping sound in the jaw, face pain, earaches, headaches, locking of the jaw, and/or difficulty opening or closing of the mouth.
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder where there are abnormal pauses in breathing or interrupted during sleep. There are two types of sleep apnea: central sleep apnea and obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea can affect anyone, even children, at any age. Majors signs and symptoms of sleep apnea include loud and chronic snoring, choking, snorting or gasping during sleep, long pauses in breathing, and daytime sleepiness no matter how much “sleep” you get.
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars that erupt usually between the ages of 17 and 25—at time of life that was once referred to as the “age of wisdom.” If healthy and properly aligned, wisdom teeth are left alone. However, in more cases than not, they are misaligned and don’t properly erupt and need to be removed.
If you are seeking TMJ treatment, sleep apnea treatment or wisdom tooth removal or if you are looking for a dentist in the Macedon, Fairport or Palmyra area, please give us call.
