As Seen On Idaho Today
Our goal is to manage sleep apnea and snoring for those who are CPAP intolerant or those who do not require CPAP. To help you accomplish this, you will find information to better understand sleep apnea and snoring, along with treatments for these sleep disrupting problems. One of these treatments is the use of a special oral appliance. Dental management with oral appliances just may be the solution you are looking for.
Head & Jaw Pain
Are you constantly having headaches? Do you clench your teeth? Does your jaw pop, click, or lock? Perhaps you’re tired of taking Advil or Excedrin, or maybe they are not effective. You may be experiencing what we call craniofacial related pain. The good news is, we may be able to help. Our conservative, non-surgical treatment is provided in a comfortable and friendly environment by staff that are trained in excellence.
The Center for Sleep Apnea & TMJ
An Accredited Dental Sleep Center
The Center for Sleep Apnea and TMJ is accredited through the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and is Idaho’s ONLY accredited dental sleep center. The standards which are set forth by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine are rigorous, and only the most qualified offices are able to attain such accreditation. At the Center for Sleep Apnea and TMJ we focus our practice solely on the treatment of sleep apnea, snoring, TMJ disorders, head and facial pain. We have limited our practice to the treatment of these issues for over 20 years. We work hand in hand with your physician and your dentist to help alleviate these issues. When appropriate, we may have physical therapists, neurologists, medical sleep specialists, or others join the treatment team in order to provide the most effective treatment possible. Members of our clinical staff have earned certification by the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain and are very knowledgeable.
Your initial exam will consist of a 15 to 20 minute history review and evaluation with our doctors. This screening exam will help the doctors to know if further evaluation is needed, if referral to another office is needed, or if simple home care will suffice.
