TMJ Sleep Appliance

    For Patients

    TMJ Treatment & Sleep Appliances

    At the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of the Greater Toronto Area, we specialize in the treatment of TMJ disorders and sleep-related breathing disorders. Our team of experienced professionals will create and fit custom sleep appliances tailored to each patient’s unique needs.

    What is a Sleep Appliance?

    A sleep appliance is a custom-made dental device designed to help manage sleep apnea and snoring by maintaining an open airway during sleep. These appliances, often referred to as mandibular advancement devices (MADs), are worn in the mouth like a sports mouthguard or an orthodontic retainer. They work by gently repositioning the lower jaw and tongue to prevent the airway from collapsing, thereby allowing for uninterrupted breathing throughout the night.

    Sleep Appliances as an Alternative to CPAP for TMJ Treatment

    Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy is a common treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). However, many patients find CPAP machines uncomfortable and difficult to use consistently. This is where sleep appliances come in as a viable alternative. For individuals suffering from both TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders and sleep apnea, sleep appliances can offer significant relief. These devices not only address sleep apnea by keeping the airway open but also help alleviate TMJ symptoms by preventing teeth grinding and reducing strain on the jaw muscles and joints.

    Dr. Goodfellow helped me immensely with all of my TMJ and sleep problems. He always explained every part of my treatment in detail so we were always at the same level of understanding. His staff was extremely kind and always accommodating of my needs. One of the best clinics and most pleasant experiences I have had when getting a medical treatment!

    If you have TMJ issues and headaches, go to Dr Goodfellow! I have suffered from migraines, jaw locking and clicking, aches, etc; after my treatment with Dr Goodfellow and his team, my jaw doesn’t lock and click anymore and I can open my mouth wide again with no pain! My headaches have decreased too. very happy, thank you 🙂
