If left untreated, sleep apnea can cause complications such as high blood pressure and other cardiovascular disease, memory problems, weight gain, impotence, and headaches.
If you have sleep apnea, your breathing can fluctuate during each episode while you're sleeping. In the most severe cases, this can happen up to 400 times. It will not only disturb your rest but also make you less productive throughout the day.
TMD can be treated with medication, appliance therapy, reshaping the bite, laser therapy, Myotherapy and orthodontia or Maxillofacial Surgery.
It is the last option, and surgical treatment is considered only after all other conservative treatment options have been exhausted.
