Sleep Apnea Sleep Disorder
Sleep apnea is a growing problem among Americans. It is a condition in which sleepers stop breathing during the night, sometimes several times in an hour. This condition keeps you from getting the rest you need to carry on with your daily activities. We understand how important it is to help you sleep soundly and safely!
Types of Sleep Apnea
There are 3 different types of sleep apnea and whatever type you may suffer from will help to determine the best course of treatment for you. These three types are:
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea – the most common type; occurs when the airway is physically blocked
- Central Sleep Apnea – occurs when the brain does not connect to the lungs until there is a lack of oxygen
- Complex Sleep Apnea – a combination of both obstructive and complex sleep apnea
No More CPAP
Although sleep apnea is often treated with a CPAP machine, we can offer you an alternative: sleep apnea oral appliances. These appliances are worn like mouthguards while you sleep and are customized for your unique needs. If you have snoring problems and suspect that you may have sleep apnea or are already disagnosed and interested in treatments for your sleep apnea, call Dr. Poss to schedule a consultation.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is the area of your face where your jawbone connects to the rest of your skull. It is an incredibly complex set of joints and muscles that you use for both speaking and eating. If you are experiencing headaches, ear pain, tinnitus (ringing in your ears), neck/shoulder pain, or difficulty in moving your jaw, you may have TMD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction). TMD can be quite painful as well as disruptive to your everyday activities. We have an array of advanced technology to both diagnose and treat your TMD. Let our office in Brentwood, TN help you manage your TMD, so you can get back to living your life!
