Health & Wellbeing

Many patients referred to us for TMJ disorders, snoring and sleep apnoea, and chronic facial pain problems also have concomitant lifestyle issues that need to be addressed in an overall treatment plan that will help improve their medical and dental outcomes, and provide them with sound strategies to better health.

This often includes diet, weight loss, caffeine and nicotine reduction, exercise, stress and anxiety management, relaxation, meditation, and improved sleep cycles. By addressing these incredibly important factors, many people have extreme life changing improvements to their overall symptoms and general well-being for the long term.
