TMJ Related Snoring

    For Patients

    Your Solution For TMJ Snoring Relief

    At The TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of San Fernando Valley, we understand that snoring is not only a common annoyance but also a potential indicator of underlying health issues, including Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders. Our dedicated team of specialists is here to provide comprehensive treatments to address snoring and its related conditions, helping you and your partner achieve a restful night’s sleep.

    Understanding Snoring and TMJ

    Snoring occurs when the airflow through the mouth and nose is partially obstructed during sleep, causing the surrounding tissues to vibrate and produce sound. TMJ disorders can contribute to snoring in several ways:

    • Jaw Alignment: Misalignment of the jaw can narrow the airway, leading to increased resistance and vibration during breathing.
    • Muscle Tension: TMJ disorders often involve muscle tension and pain in the jaw, neck, and shoulders, which can affect the airway and breathing patterns.
    • Bruxism: Teeth grinding or clenching, commonly associated with TMJ, can exacerbate snoring by causing additional strain on the jaw and surrounding muscles.

    Comprehensive Diagnosis

    A thorough evaluation is essential for effective snoring and TMJ treatment. Our comprehensive diagnostic process includes:

    • Medical History Review: Assessing your health history and any existing TMJ symptoms.
    • Physical Examination: Evaluating the structure and function of your jaw, throat, and airway.
    • Sleep Studies: Conducting sleep studies to monitor your breathing patterns and identify any occurrences of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

    Personalized Treatment Plans

    Based on our diagnosis, we develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Our treatment options for snoring and TMJ include:

    • Oral Appliances: Custom-made devices designed to reposition the jaw or tongue to keep the airway open during sleep, addressing both snoring and TMJ symptoms.
    • Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP): An effective treatment for OSA that provides a constant stream of air to maintain an open airway.
    • Physical Therapy: Specialized exercises to strengthen the jaw muscles and improve TMJ function, reducing muscle tension that contributes to snoring.
    • Lifestyle Modifications: Recommendations for weight management, sleep position changes, and avoiding alcohol or sedatives before bedtime to reduce snoring.
    • Surgical Options: In severe cases, surgical interventions may be necessary to correct structural issues in the airway or jaw.
