Dr. Stephen M. Winber | Dr. Kevin S. Berry
The Craniofacial Diagnostic Center combines neuromuscular dentistry, craniofacial dentistry and sleep dentistry to provide treatments for a variety of conditions. These include various movement disorder symptoms, TMJ disorders, sleep apnea, and snoring that can be treated by Dr. Stephen M. Winber and Dr. Kevin Berry.
Treating Movement Disorder Symptoms with Dr. Winber
Movement disorders, such as Tourette Syndrome and Parkinson’s disease, make life troublesome for many people on a daily basis. Many suffer from tremors that keep them from accomplishing simple tasks; some have difficulty walking; and few ever see relief.
Dr. Stephen Winber is able to provide this relief; treating the symptoms that plague movement disorder sufferers. By assessing the bite and creating a custom-made dental appliance to maintain the new bite, symptoms, such as facial tics, tremors and loss of feeling in the extremities, are greatly diminished or alleviated, allowing patients to function normally for the first time in years.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
TMJ disorder has become a more prominent problem in the dental world today. TMJ disorder, also known as TMD, occurs when the bite of the mouth is misaligned; causing multiple symptoms in sufferers that may seem unrelated. These can include jaw pain, headaches, neck and back pain, and bruxism. Most sufferers of TMJ disorder go years if not decades undiagnosed and untreated before seeking help from a TMJ dentist. Dr. Berry diagnoses TMJ disorder and provides treatment for the root cause of TMJ disorder, not just the symptoms.
Treatment for Sleep Apnea
Millions of people nationwide suffer from some form of sleep apnea, and most are never diagnosed or treated. If sleep apnea is left untreated for too long, various health problems can arise, ranging from depression and anxiety to cardiovascular disease and diabetes. It is important to understand the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea to determine whether it is time to seek treatment.
While sleep apnea cannot be diagnosed by a dentist, Dr. Berry offers treatment options that are frequently preferred over CPAP or surgery. Learn more about these alternatives here.
