Appliance Therapy

    For Patients

    Appliance Therapy can be an effective alternative to CPAP.

    At TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Montana, we understand the importance of quality sleep and the impact it has on your overall well-being. That’s why we offer advanced Appliance Therapy to address issues like TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) and sleep-related conditions.

    What is a Sleep Appliance?

    A Sleep Appliance, also known as a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD), is a custom-made oral device designed to treat sleep-related breathing disorders such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It works by repositioning the lower jaw slightly forward during sleep, which helps to keep the airway open and prevents breathing interruptions.

    Benefits of Appliance Therapy for TMJ:

    Appliance Therapy not only helps with sleep disorders but also offers significant benefits for individuals suffering from TMJ. By gently repositioning the jaw, these appliances alleviate pressure on the temporomandibular joint, reducing pain, inflammation, and discomfort associated with TMJ disorder.

    How it Differs from CPAP:

    While Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines are effective for treating sleep apnea, they can be bulky, noisy, and uncomfortable for some individuals. Appliance Therapy provides a more comfortable and convenient alternative, offering greater mobility and ease of use during sleep.

    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!
