Better Breathing For Better Health
July 20, 2020
Breathing is something we often take for granted. How we breath can change depending on our activity, emotions and certain situations we face on a daily basis. When you are stressed or scared, your breathing may be shallow or quick. When calm and relaxed, you may notice you take normal, full breaths. When treating sleep apnea, we often recommend a certain breathing technique — known as the Buteyko Breathing Method — to help with your treatment. Our colleagues at TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centres International location in London, England created a video that helps explain how you can practice this method for better breathing and overall better health.

Getting To The Root Of The Issue
July 6, 2020
TMD and sleep apnea are common health issues that occur for a variety of reasons. As such, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for these conditions, either. Our team tries to be extremely comprehensive and thorough when we evaluate our patients. We’ve found that 95% of an effective treatment is dependent on a proper diagnosis. We don’t simply look to put a bandaid or mask on the problem, we get to the underlying issue so as to find a permanent solution.

Yoga And TMD
June 5, 2020
Some of our patients being treated for TMD have asked us if there is anything they can do at home to help compliment the therapy they receive from our office. For TMD patients, we found that one activity in particular has brought some added relief and boosted their overall quality of life in ways they didn’t expect.
Long-Term Outlook: When TMD Is Left Untreated

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) may start off as a small inconvenience. Headaches may come and go, and the jaw and facial pain relieved with over-the-counter pain medication. But the cause of the pain might be unknown, leaving an individual to think that it’s something they just have to deal with. TMD can occur for a number of reasons and the symptoms can range from annoying to debilitating pain.
