Everytime I have the opportunity to help patients with TMJ pain or sleep problems I am grateful to have the knowledge to help these patients.  There are so many kids and adults who do not function well due to not being able to breath at night.  I am encouraging you to take 2 minutes and watch Connor Deagans video that shares how important airway and breathing is to our well-being and life.

 
Porcelain Veneers are a way to enhance your smile with Cosmetic Dentistry.  You cannot correct overbites or underbites with porcelain veneers.  However, bite correction can be completed with porcelain restorations that can also change profiles, reverse aging facial appearances, correct overbites and underbites
 

Oral splints look similar to sports mouth guards and are often used in the preliminary stages of TMJ treatment. When used in this manner, a TMJ splint may be useful in helping to determine your correct bite alignment. Initial-stage TMJ treatment with an oral splint may take three months or more depending on the extent and cause of your condition.

Many patients who have TMJ pain do not have to go through braces or surgery to correct their overbites or underbites. The first step in these cases is to treat the TMJ pain and bad bite. During this phase, the correct physiologic jaw position is determined comprehensively with the use of CBCT scans of the neck and jaw joint, biomedical instrumentation, comprehensive examination and a “test drive bite” in the corrected jaw position.
