Facial pain and headaches are often associated with bite problems. The first step in our treatment approach is to alleviate pain using very conservative measures such as wearing a splint to stabilize the bite along with physical therapy and exercise. Once pain free we will determine what is needed to maintain the overall improvement.
Jaw position can restrict the airway and contribute to snoring and sleep apnea. Following a complete diagnostic evaluation we can determine if changes to jaw position and the bite will improve the airway and relieve symptoms.
