At our practice our doctor, Dr. Paul Grin, can provide you with dental sleep medicine to help you get a good night’s sleep. Our treatment is idea for people who cannot tolerate CPAP devices for sleep apnea. Many patients become concerned when they are unable to find help using a CPAP device – they wonder how they will ever get help for their snoring or sleep apnea. CPAP is the traditional solution for treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. However anyone who has ever used this machine knows how inconvenient and difficult it is to use. It is bulky and difficult to travel with. It also needs many special attachments and special care. In fact CPAC machines have caused their own problems including: nasal congestion; anxiety; claustrophobia; headaches; and other problems. Luckily, this is not the only snoring treatment available. There is an effective alternative snoring treatment in Torrance.

Our practice has found that intra-oral devices are very effective for sleep apnea and snoring – and they are better tolerated by their users.

Are you suffering a constant aching agony in your face and jaws that is interfering with your life? Many of us are quick to write off our daily aches and pains as simply sleeping incorrectly, or just an over-dramatization that we simply need to work through. But the truth is that facial pain which occurs on a regular and consistent basis has nothing to do with your sleeping position, and usually indicates a serious problem occurring your muscles and joints of the face, and can even indicate a neurological problem.

One of the most common causes of chronic myofascial pain is a type of physical disorder known as TMD or temporomandibular joint disorder. The temporomandibular joint is the hinge which allows your lower jaw to connect and move with the rest of your skull, and is the most often used joint in the entire. The smooth operation of this joint system relies on healthy facial muscles and a thick cushion of cartilage between the ball and hinge, or the condyle and fossa, which allows for comfortable motion. TMD symptoms include teeth grinding, facial pain, and a tell-tale clicking or popping sound when the jaw is in use. TMD, often times called TMJ, can be easily treated by your trusted TMJ pain and Obstructive Sleep Apnea care center with simple oral appliances as well as surgical methods to help your body heal.

However, not all chronic myofascial pain disorders are caused by the physical muscles and joints in your face. If your paid is not a constant ache, but rather an episode throb that comes and goes in agonizing pain, the source of your problem could actually be in a completely different system of the body entirely. Trigeminal neuralgia is a condition which causes the 5th cranial nerve, known as the trigeminal, to send spasms throughout the nerves of your face. These attacks can last as little as a few seconds, or as long as several minutes, and often increase in pain and duration over time. At your professional TMJ pain and Obstructive Sleep Apnea care center our expert neurological team can work with you to get to the bottom of your trigeminal neuralgia to stop this pain from wreaking havoc on your life. At the office of Dr. Paul Grin, DDS, MPH, APC we provide our patients with state of the art care for headaches, TMJ, and orofacial pain of all causes to help you live a life where pain is no longer a daily interference.
