Does your child struggle to get a good night’s sleep? Or, do they consistently complain of jaw stiffness or pain while eating? They could be experiencing the symptoms of sleep apnea or TMJ disorder. Our Dripping Springs, TX dental office is filled with the latest dental technologies to ensure expert diagnoses for healthier outcomes!
Sleep Apnea & TMJ Treatment
If your child is frequently tired and has been displaying undiagnosed behavioral issues, they could be suffering from sleep apnea. Our kids dentists work closely with trusted, local ear, nose, and throat doctors to help correct sleep apnea issues. If we find that the root problem is caused by a developmental issue, like a narrow palate, we may be able to fabricate and prescribe a custom oral sleep device.
Similarly, if your child suffers from jaw pain or stiffness, the Smiles of Dripping Springs team can assess them for TMJ. Typically, appliances like nightguards make a big difference, especially for young patients. If your child happens to have a more severe case of TMJ, we will handle the referral process and work directly with an oral surgeon who treats similar cases.
