My spouse snores and may have sleep apnea. Can you help?

One out of eight people who snore have sleep apnea, a serious medical condition that increases your risk of heart attack and stroke. Depending on the severity of your case, Dr. Adam may be able to prescribe an oral appliance to alleviate snoring as well as mild to moderate sleep apnea.

I have chronic headaches. Can you help?

Chronic headaches are often a symptom of a TMJ disorder, a misaligned bite, or bruxism (grinding). Dr. Adam will carefully examine your occlusion (bite), jaw, head, and neck to determine the underlying causes of your pain. Then he will present a combination therapy plan tailored to your specific needs. In order to relax the jaw muscle and allow healing your plan may include a combination of non-surgical approaches, such as Botox, a custom bite night guard, or medication. If you suffer from headaches call our office now to schedule an exam.

What is the recovery time for Botox?

Botox relaxes the muscles in your face so that lines and wrinkles soften. It typically lasts up to 6 months. You can have Botox done on your lunchbreak and return immediately back to work. It will take less than 15 minutes of your time.
