You might be wondering, what is a TMJ disorder (TMD)? Well, TMJ or temporomandibular joint encompasses a wide range of jaw joint dysfunctions. Various factors, like teeth clenching, grinding, arthritis, or inflammation can prevent the TMJs from working – resulting in your inability to chew, yawn, and speak with ease. It can show in the form of headaches, jaw pain, and clicking or popping noises when you open your mouth. For more information about TMJ/TMD treatment, please contact Sierra Springs Dental in Calgary to schedule your appointment.
Sleep Apnea & Snoring Treatment
Do you have sleep apnea? Our qualified Calgary dentists have the tools to provide you with various treatment options to help you sleep safely and soundly at night. If you don’t know what sleep apnea is, it’s when your airway is momentarily blocked while you sleep at night. This is a serious condition that can cause headaches, fatigue, and high blood pressure. These symptoms signal the need for treatment before life-threatening health problems arise.
Health Risks of Sleep Apnea
- Heart disease
- Memory loss
- High blood pressure
- Sudden cardiac death
Do you have a fear of the dentist? Sierra Springs Dental is here to relieve your dental anxiety and provide you with various sedation options so you can get the treatment you deserve. We use treatment forms, such as IV, laughing gas, and oral sedation. What is oral sedation? It’s when you take a small pill an hour before your scheduled appointment to help you go into a deep state of relaxation. You won’t be unconscious; however, all your fear and anxiety will disappear during your treatment, making it a more comfortable experience for you.
