The Importance of Jaw Health and Function
Your jaw, joints, and muscles play an important role in the health and function of your mouth. Anytime there’s an imbalance, whether due to the position of your jaw, joints, teeth, or a combination of the three, you’ll most likely suffer in your daily life. Many issues can arise, including migraines, teeth grinding and clenching, chronic joint and muscle pain, and even breathing disorders like sleep apnea. Understanding this link between TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder and conditions like sleep apnea is the first step to providing personalized and effective treatment. Dr. Saleh Elahwal and Dr. Germain Jean-Charles are trained to diagnose and treat both TMJ disorder and sleep apnea and can assist you in overcoming your symptoms.
