    Pediatric TMJ & Sleep

    Why Pediatric Care Matters:

    Pediatric TMJ and sleep disorders wield considerable influence over a child’s development and general well-being. Timely intervention and appropriate treatment are imperative to prevent enduring health issues and ensure the thriving of children.

    Our Pediatric Services:

    • Early Diagnosis: We conduct thorough assessments to identify TMJ and sleep-related concerns in children promptly, allowing for timely intervention.

    • Customized Treatment: Our team devises personalized treatment plans tailored to each child’s distinct needs, recognizing that children’s requirements differ from those of adults.

    • Parental Involvement: Actively engaging parents and guardians in their child’s treatment plan ensures a collaborative effort to enhance the child’s health.

    • Education: We prioritize empowering both children and parents with knowledge about the conditions and available treatment options.

    Common Pediatric Symptoms:

    • Jaw Pain: Children may express complaints of jaw pain, a symptom that can sometimes be overlooked or mistakenly attributed to other causes.

    • Sleep Disturbances: Sleep issues such as snoring or sleep apnea can impact a child’s overall health and daytime functioning.

    • Chronic Headaches: Frequent headaches can serve as an early indicator of TMJ disorders in children.

    • Behavioral Changes: Sleep disorders may lead to irritability, mood swings, and behavioral changes in children.

    • Academic Performance: Poor sleep can adversely affect a child’s academic performance and overall quality of life.

      My treatment has been nothing short of life changing. I have struggled with TMJ issues for about 10 years and it got much worse in the last year. After treatment here, I can now chew on both sides of my mouth, open my jaw all the way, no more clicking or popping, and finally no pain or ringing ears. I was skeptical at first, but Dr. VanDkye REALLY knows what she’s talking about and all the women in the office are so helpful!

      I started with TMJ &Sleep Therapy Center in June this year. I was grinding teeth with mouth pieces made at the dentist offices that didn't help with my other issues. HEADACHES, not sleeping, jaw popping, pain in right ear, sinus issues. I was hoping only for help with headaches and sleep, and grinding. I recieved my more than ever expected. I sleep through the night, headache free, popping gone. Mouth pieces are so different than others I have had made. They truly gave me my life back. Thank you!

      The staff is wonderful, and so knowledgeable. My wife had been suffering for a long time with jaw pain, none of the medical doctors were able to help her. Finally, after treatment she has had no more pain and life is good!
