Millions of Americans suffer from TMJ and craniofacial disorders. TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint. It is the joint that connects the lower jawbone to the skull. The human TMJ’s and jaw is essentially a lever system, complex in structure. Unfortunately this system is not ideal in design, often inefficient and subject to problems. TMJ disorder management is included in the larger group of managing Craniofacial Pain disorders, extending not only to the jaw, but the greater head, neck, shoulder and back structures that are neurologically linked to the jaw, but can present as facial pain.

Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common sleep apnea diagnosis. You may have sleep apnea if you snore or stop breathing during sleep. This condition occurs as airflow becomes restricted or stops if the throat and tongue tissues relax during sleep and the airway becomes blocked. This can cause oxygen levels to drop forcing constant sleep disruption cycles from choking and gasping. These interruptions cause sufferers to wake up feeling unrested, stressed and fatigued from the lack of deep, restful sleep. If left untreated, the condition can lead to Stroke, cardiovascular problems, heart disease, diabetes, erectile dysfunction and even death.

I went to Dr. Larson for TMJ symptoms. I had chronic headaches, neck and jaw pain. I was waking up during the night gasping for air. I could not take it anymore. After doing some research online, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Larson.
