What Is Sleep Apnea?
Apnea is a condition that causes your airways to narrow or close at night, which forces you to wake up and restart your breathing. These moments are often so short that the sleeper doesn’t remember them. They wake up thinking they’ve had plenty of sleep, never realizing that they haven’t.
The truth is that those with sleep apnea can wake up anywhere from a few times a night to hundreds. Whatever the number, however, waking up breaks the sleep cycle and prevents REM. The results are severe daytime exhaustion, low oxygen levels, chronic snoring, and increased risk of many other serious health conditions.

What Is a TMD?
The temporomandibular joints on either side of your face, known as TMJs, are particularly susceptible to stress, damage, and injury. It is common for the TMJs to develop disorders — or TMDs — due to this stress or damage.
TMDs can make it difficult to bite, chew, or sometimes even to speak without complication. They can cause a great deal of pain and tension that does not stay localized to the TMJ area. When left untreated by a TMJ specialist, TMDs can result in chronic migraines, lockjaw, and wear to the teeth.
TMD treatment involves a meeting with our Murfreesboro TMJ specialist in order to diagnose the exact cause of the stress on the joint. From there, we can determine how to most effectively relieve that stress and allow the TMJ to heal. These treatments can include oral appliances, bite guards, muscle relaxants, and physical therapy.
