Thanks to the advanced training and expertise offered by Dr. Aaron Larsen, the Aesthetic Dento-Facial Associates offers treatments for TMJ/TMD and sleep apnea. If you’ve been suffering from symptoms including facial, neck or back pain, fatigue and headaches, please ask us about our effective treatments.
Common symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Breathing cessation during the night

- Morning headaches
- Fatigue and irritability
- Increase in heart rate, blood pressure and weight gain
- Trouble concentrating
Common symptoms of TMJ/TMD include:
- Pain and tenderness in the jaw
- Aching in the face
- Difficulty chewing
- Locking of the jaw joint
- Clicking and popping in jaw
Everything we do here is non-surgical and non-invasive using advanced technology. For most patients, immediate relief is possible with a long-term treatment plan—custom designed to fit their unique needs. Many patients experience a positive difference after only one visit.
Some technology used in our office includes:
Cone beam (CBCT) – produces precise high definition images of the mouth and jaw to diagnose a misaligned jaw joint and airway obstructions. After the diagnosis, it is used to create a treatment plan and monitor the patient’s progress.
MLS Laser – a low level light therapy laser is used to reduce inflammation and control chronic pain while speeding up the healing process.
JVA (Joint Vibration Analysis) – provides analysis of TMJ function to aid in the diagnosis of a patient’s condition.
If you are suffering from symptoms of TMJ/TMD or sleep apnea, please let us know on your next visit to our office. We’ll listen carefully to you, and create a custom treatment plan that gets to the root of the issue.
