For many people in Denver and the surrounding areas of Colorado, proper dental hygiene and dental health involves daily brushing, flossing, and the use of mouthwash, but they also struggle with other dental-related challenges that go beyond simple hygiene. The fact is that dental health is multi-fold and there are so many different factors that go into having a healthy mouth which includes the teeth, gums, jaw, and other parts of the body. While dental health and overall dental care may seem to be simple, the fact is that a lot of different factors go into determining whether or not we are healthy from a dental perspective. This is, in essence, the philosophy of neuromuscular dentistry, and is how Dr. Kevin Berry approaches dental care.

Denver Sleep Apnea Treatment With Dr. Berry
Millions of people suffer from sleep apnea, but unfortunately only a fraction of them are ever actually diagnosed with sleep apnea after years of being left untreated. When sleep apnea is left untreated for too long it can lead to slow deterioration of the health of our internal organs which can ultimately lead to an untimely death. Since sleep apnea is often times treatable with the help of a dentist, you can and should consult a dentist for help with your sleep apnea in Denver. Though a sleep apnea dentist cannot diagnose you with sleep apnea, Dr. Berry will be able to work with a sleep physician to ensure that you get the sleep apnea treatment that is right for you.
Snoring – Treatment For A Possibly Serious Problem
We all surely know someone who snores; maybe you snore yourself. It is rare that constant nights of snoring will bring a patient into a dental office. What patients don’t know is that snoring can be a symptom of sleep apnea, which is a serious health problem.
If you are a constant snorer, it’s crucial that you come to Dr. Berry to be examined. If your snoring is in fact a symptom of sleep apnea, Dr. Berry will help you to get properly diagnosed and then will treat you accordingly. It’s important that you know what exactly is causing your snoring so that proper snoring treatment can be administered to you.
TMJ Treatment in Denver, Colorado
Another problem that has become very prominent in the dental world is TMJ Disorder, also sometimes known as TMD. Because the entire mouth is taken into consideration as part of neuromuscular dentistry, the health of a patient’s occlusion and jaw joints is always taken very seriously. So a neuromuscular dentist examines these accordingly. Some patients will experience TMJ symptoms such as headaches, migraines, tinnitus, jaw pain, neck pain, bruxism, and other indications of having the disorder. However, because TMJ symptoms are so broad and often times go away and return on a random schedule, patients sometimes suffer for years before they consult a dentist for TMJ help.
