Oral Sleep Apnea Treatment & TMJ Specialist Solutions


Sleep is one of the simplest and most needed aspects of life…until you are not able to get the sleep you need. Even more bewildering is when you lay down to sleep with plenty of time on the clock, and your body isn’t cooperating. Whatever position you switch to, you just can’t catch your breath, waking up in the middle of the night, never a fulfilling night of sleep. Unfortunately, you might be one of 60 million in the US suffering from sleep apnea, but the good news is Ward Periodontics, Sunrise Sleep & TMJ Solutions have an obstructive sleep apnea treatment solution. 

Untreated Obtrusive Sleep Apnea Symptoms 

Sleep apnea is a burden in and of itself, however when jaw pain is associated with the sleep apnea, or Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ), signs begin to point to a certain set of symptoms associated with the two disorders. 

  • High Blood Pressure – sleep apnea is often linked with high blood pressure and may require medication to get under control. 
  • Heart Disease & Stroke – sleep apnea is a major contributor to increased risk of heart disease, strokes and even blood clots.
  • Chronic Acid Reflux – certainly not associated with sleep apnea, this is a major symptom.
  • Impairment – whether making difficult decisions to driving your car, sleep deprivation is more dangerous than most think.
  • Sudden Weight Gain
  • Cognitive Decline & Difficulty Paying Attention
  • Depression & Emotional Concerns

"I visited several dentists before choosing Doctor Ward. I can’t express how happy I am with my decision. I haven’t stopped smiling since I left his office. He was professional and friendly, as was his staff. If I had to undergo this procedure again I would choose Doctor Ward again and again. Thank you Doctor Ward and staff. You have changed my life forever!!!"

"I've been very fortunate in selecting Dr. Ward to do the implant surgery I had been investigating for over a year. I am still going through the process, but I couldn't be happier with what he has done so far. I received a very thorough consultation before having the work done. The process was painless and recovery was a breeze. At my follow-up visits, he takes time to answer all my questions and makes sure that any issues I'm having are resolved. I trust his work and advice completely. His assistants and office staff are very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Ward."
