Sleep apnea is a disorder that prevents the body from getting a sufficient amount of oxygen during sleep. During sleep, the person stops breathing for small periods of time, creating an extremely dangerous situation. Over 12 million men, women and children in America have been diagnosed with one of the three types of sleep apnea.

Teeth that do not align properly can lead to a variety of problems, including tooth decay and gum disease. Your teeth of the upper and lower jaw should fit precisely together. When they don’t, it can increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Orthodontics is an area of dentistry that diagnoses and corrects teeth and jaw alignment problems using devices such as braces and plates.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) is a term referring to a number of clinical problems involving the Temporomandibular Joints (TMJs) and associated muscles and structures of the jaw area. Several researchers have found clicking and popping noises in the jaw joints to be present in 40-60% of the general population. Considering that normal, healthy TMJs are completely silent at all times, the 40-60% figure is a rather staggering one to consider. The good news is that TMD symptoms are variable in nature, with most being a mild annoyance. A small percentage of patients with TMD have symptoms which degenerate into crippling chronic pain and limited jaw mobility. A recent National Institute of Health study indicates that over nine million Americans suffer from TMJ pain of some level on a regular basis.
