TMJ and Sleep Dentistry-Auburn CA
The way our teeth fit together, our bite, can have some surprising effects. A misaligned bite can cause headaches, migraines, neck pain, facial pain, TMJ, and chronic clenching that leads to worn and damaged teeth.
With the use of Neuromuscular Dentistry, Dr. Isbell can correct your misaligned bite and relieve your pain.
Muscles & Joints in Dentistry
When our teeth don’t naturally align, our muscles and joints shift to get them together, which leads to muscles being overworked when they should be relaxed. Depending on how the muscles and joints must work to align the bite, a variety of painful conditions can develop.
Dr. Isbell is proud to be a LVI Fellow, this is a distinction awarded to those who have completed the LVI Core Curriculum which includes training in advanced aesthetics, physiological science, and who has successfully completed a comprehensive examination.

While wearing a CPAP can aid in sleep disorders, most people are non-compliant due to the inconvenience and discomfort. Depending on severity of the sleep disorder, a mandibular advancement device which is an oral appliance worn at night, can be used in place of a CPAP machine.
