Sleep Apnea & TMJ

Do I suffer from Sleep Apnea?

Do you sleep well through the night? Or do you wake up at intervals gasping for air or snore loudly? If you answered yes to either of the questions, then chances are you might be suffering from sleep apnea and you are not even aware of it. As a condition, sleep apnea blocks your airways and interrupts your breathing while you sleep during the night. This, in turn, prevents you from getting the desired oxygen and rest that you need for a peaceful sleep. Thus, you end up waking up restless and irritated the next morning.

What are the common symptoms of Sleep Apnea?

Generally, sleep apnea is common among people who have a history of sleeping disorders in their families. Additionally, men aged 65 or above are at the highest risk of developing sleep apnea. However, anyone can contract sleep apnea. Some of the common signs of sleep apnea are as follows:

  • Loss of memory
  • Difficulty in focusing and learning
  • Frequent mood swings
  • Experiencing dry throat and headaches
  • More prone to accidents
  • Feeling sleepy during the day

TMJ Treatment in Rancho Cucamonga


Do you experience frequent headaches, jaw stress, and pain in your shoulders and neck? Are you clueless why you have all these symptoms in the first place? Many people suffering from temporomandibular disorder, or TMJ, have difficulty in pinpointing their symptoms’ cause. One major cause of TMJ is a misaligned jaw, as it puts pressure on the adjoining muscles. This, in turn, leads to pain. Some common symptoms of TMJ disorder include migraines, tooth sensitivity, pain in the ears and facial muscles, limited jaw movement, popping sounds while moving your jaw, etc.

What are the causes of TMJ?

There are several causes that can lead to TMJ; some of them are listed below:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Missing teeth and gaps between teeth
  • Tooth erosion
  • Misaligned teeth and jaw
  • Teeth grinding and clenching
  • Arthritis
  • Improper biting pattern

Such wonderful service! I feel both protected and appreciated as a client! From reception to in the chair, everyone is top notch! Knowledgeable in the field of dentistry and able to educate in a very respectable yet direct way! Their goal is to help you take care of your teeth and provide you with the resources and connections to do so! 100/10 in my book, went to them as a teenager with my family and soon stayed with them once I became a adult. Choice Family Dentistry has been a part of my life for the span of over a decade, and I don’t plan on switching dentist anytime soon.

I highly recommend Dr Choi! He is very gentle, kind and thorough. My entire family and extended family goes to Choice dental. Paula, who is the office manager is extremely patient, knowledgeable, and helpful. The staff all give off a happy hardworking vibe! It’s hard to find a Dentist/office you enjoy going to, under the sometimes dreadful circumstances. They make you feel very comfortable and safe.

When I arrived to the office was greeted by Paula and followed up on another matter re: my insurance. Took care of that and was called in to start my cleaning; was done in a timely manner with a pleasant dental hygienist. I will be staying here for a while. Love it.
