Pain-related Issues

For all patients, minimizing pain is our top priority. However, we also take this a step further and specialize in understanding and treating patients who suffer from craniofacial pain (headaches, face and neck pain) and TMD (Temporo mandibular disorder). These are evolving disciplines but ones Beach Village Dentistry is committed to studying to ensure our patients receive cutting-edge care. There is a strong correlation between patients with TMD pain or dysfunction and patients who have SDB (Sleep Disordered Breathing) problems such as snoring, teeth grinding (bruxism) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

The steps we take to assess pain-related issues are:

– screening
– referral to medical sleep practitioners where indicated
– fabrication of stabilization appliances
– introduction of snoring appliances
– introduction of bruxism appliance

Addressing all aspects of a patient’s pain goes a long way to providing short and long-term comfort – in and out of the chair.
