We Are Great Team Players
Since its founding, the Michigan TMJ & Sleep Wellness Center has built its reputation on being a team player. We have always sought to work closely with other health professionals, because we knew that was what was best for our patients.
We Refer Patients to Partners
Sometimes, we have patients who just won’t benefit from the therapeutic options we offer. Perhaps they have central or complex sleep apnea, or perhaps their airway won’t respond to oral appliance therapy. In these cases, we refer patients to sleep physicians who we’ve worked with before.
We Treat Related Conditions
Often, sleep physicians send us their patients who have jaw dysfunction, such as temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ/TMD). There is a significant overlap between sleep apnea and TMD. About half of sleep apnea sufferers have TMD, and an even higher percentage of people with TMD have sleep disordered breathing, including sleep apnea.
