Welcome toNashville Center for Sleep and TMJ
Sleep is one of the most important actions people take each night that recharges and restores a person’s energy for the next day. Simple functions and daily activities become exceedingly difficult when someone does not get enough sleep each night. Interrupted sleep can also increase the likelihood of someone falling asleep while driving. Unfortunately, there are multiple sleep disorders and health issues that can interrupt one’s necessary sleep cycle.
Thus, we provide specific treatment for these conditions as a sleep clinic in Nashville, TN, and the surrounding area. Patients with issues in the temporomandibular joint that connects the jaw to the skull may find it difficult to get a good night’s sleep. We customize each treatment to the patient’s individual needs to help enhance the treatment process. If you struggle with sleep apnea, TMJ disorder or other sleep issues, then we can provide the customized treatment you need.
From the moment patients walk in the door to any follow-up appointments, we strive to increase their comfort during their treatment. We create a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere at our clinic to help patients stay calm. Our team has the knowledge and tools to help determine the severity of your sleep issues and recommend treatment. Since each patient is unique, there are several different treatment options for them to choose. Our goal is to find the treatment that will help them receive the proper amount of sleep each night. There is no reason that you should have to continue struggling each night just to get enough sleep. Our team can help.
We provide several treatment options to help patients receive the proper amount of sleep. Two main conditions that patients may struggle with are obstructive sleep apnea and TMJ disorder. If left unchecked, these conditions can cause a variety of health issues, jaw pain, fatigue, teeth grinding, drowsiness, headaches and more. As a sleep center, we provide patients with possible treatment options such as oral appliance therapy, TMD treatment, DTR therapy and migraine treatment. Along with the pain and drowsiness, people with sleep apnea may have disruptive snoring so loud it can wake up one’s partner and family members. We can help to treat this as well.
To begin the treatment process, we will need to gather personal medical information about the patient and conduct a sleep study. We will need information on the patient’s medical history, current condition, allergies, insurance, sleep cycle and any other pertinent information we need to know. By conducting a sleep study, we can determine how often the patient’s condition interrupts sleep and begin building a treatment around the results. By gathering information on the patient’s medical history, we can also avoid similar treatments that were not effective in treating this condition and seek something more effective. Do not hesitate to call us and schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
