  • Q: Q: Can You Help to Relieve My Jaw Pain or Other Jaw Problems?
    A:

    Jaw pain and other jaw problems may be associated with conditions like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) or teeth clenching and grinding (bruxism).  These conditions could also cause neck and shoulder pain, headaches, and other symptoms if left untreated.  The dental professionals at Gregory Allen Kerbel DDS, PLLC are trained in TMJ treatment, and after an examination and diagnosis, we can discuss potential treatment options, including appliances like custom-fitted mouth guards for lasting relief, or medications for immediate pain relief.  With ongoing care, many patients see significant reduction in pain and associated symptoms.

  • Q: What Can a Dentist Do to Alleviate Snoring or Sleep Apnea?
    A:

    Snoring and sleep apnea (a condition that causes you to cease normal breathing during sleep) can disrupt your sleep, leave you fatigued, and in extreme cases, contribute to more serious conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and more.  They could also affect your oral health by drying out your mouth and increasing conditions that lead to tooth decay.  Following examination and diagnosis, we can recommend custom oral appliances or other sleep apnea treatment options.
