TMJ & Sleep Treatment for Children

Our dedicated team is committed to providing comprehensive care for children experiencing TMJ disorders, sleep-related breathing disorders, and other craniofacial pain issues. Understanding that early intervention is key to preventing long-term health problems, we offer a range of pediatric treatments designed to ensure the healthy development of your child’s jaw, airway, and sleep patterns. Our approach to pediatric care is rooted in compassion and expertise. We recognize the impact that issues such as sleep apnea, bruxism, and TMJ disorders can have on a child’s overall health, including their growth, behavior, and academic performance. That’s why we employ the latest diagnostic techniques and treatment methods, tailored specifically for children, to identify and address these conditions effectively.

  • Evaluation and Treatment of TMJ Disorders: Our specialists assess and treat TMJ disorders in children, which can manifest as jaw pain, difficulty chewing, or even headaches.

  • Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders: We diagnose and manage conditions like pediatric sleep apnea and snoring, which can significantly affect a child’s sleep quality and overall health.

  • Myofunctional Therapy: This therapy focuses on correcting improper tongue posture and swallowing patterns, essential for proper oral and facial development.

  • Orthodontic Assessment: Early assessment can identify the need for intervention to promote optimal jaw growth and prevent future orthodontic issues.

If your child is experiencing symptoms related to TMJ disorders, sleep disturbances, or other craniofacial pain issues, we’re here to help. Contact us today to schedule a consultation. Let us be your partner in navigating your child’s journey to optimal health and well-being.
