Relief From TMJ and Sleep Apnea
We are a Boulder practice dedicated to helping individuals find relief from facial, neck, and head pain and from the disruption caused by snoring, along with the potentially life threatening health risks associated with Sleep Apnea.
We focus on identifying the root cause of pain and treat the source to seek a lasting solution. Custom and highly specific orthotic appliances are provided for differing TMD conditions and offer an alternative to CPAP for patients suffering from snoring and Sleep Apnea.
We offer a compassionate approach to diagnosis and treatment and we encourage patients to ask questions.
