TMJ/Sleep - Avalon Dental

Our Orthodontic Services include various methods to help align your teeth for a perfect smile.


Neuromuscular Dentistry

Neuromuscular dentists understand that the hard and soft tissues of your jaw and supporting structures have a complex relationship.  Neuromuscular dentistry is an approach to dental treatment that focuses on the correction of jaw misalignment with emphasis on muscle relaxation. Our dentists are trained to find your jaw’s natural and comfortable position alleviating the pain and stress from a fatigued or misaligned bite. Symptoms from a misaligned bite are referred to as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder or Syndrome, or  Myofacial Pain Dysfunction.

  • Headaches/Migraines

If you answered yes to any of the above, call and book a consult with one of our Dentists to learn more about how we can alleviate your symptoms.

Sleep Appliances

If you or someone you know displays symptoms such as snoring, excessive daytime drowsiness, pauses in breathing or teeth grinding while sleeping; or if you have already been diagnosed with mild to moderate sleep apnea and have trouble using your CPAP, we can help. Continuous Open Airway Therapy appliances work by optimally positioning the jaw slightly forward opening the airway and preventing it’s collapse during sleep.  SomnoDent appliances are some of the most comfortable, high quality and clinically proven appliances available. If you or anyone you know suffers from a sleep disorder or suspects they do,  call and book a consultation.
