- I just have headaches. Why was I referred to TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Washington? Chronic headaches are often a symptom of undiagnosed conditions of sleep-related breathing disorders or an injury to the temporomandibular joint and surrounding structures. The doctors of TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centres have been able to find the primary cause and provide effective treatment for thousands of headache patients.
- I've already tried splints. What's different about your treatment? Unlike splints, the orthotics (orthopedic appliances) we use are individually designed using a peer-reviewed bite registration to provide the best position and fit for healing. They are used short-term (approximately 12 weeks) to provide support and protection to the joints during the rehabilitation process.

A sleep appliance is specifically designed to maintain an open airway
