Sleep Therapy Specialist Dr. Vickie Greenberg

If you’ve ever experienced insomnia you know how tough it is to stay alert and focused the next day. If you suffer from Sleep Apnea and snoring, then you know how detrimental consistently poor sleep is for maintaining an active and productive lifestyle.

If you or your partner has been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, or your snoring has become an ongoing in issue in your household, read on to learn more about Sleep Therapy Specialist Dr. Vickie Greenberg and how she uses orthodontics to improve the sleeping patterns of her patients every single day.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep Apnea is a condition marked by consistent disruptions in breathing during sleep. This results in snoring, meaning not only does the patient experience poor sleep, but their partner as well.

When you don’t sleep well it’s really hard to stay focused on your daily activities. Your work may begin to suffer, as well as your relationships. There is a cumulative effect to poor sleep, and it’s best to take action sooner rather than later so that you can get back on course before your life becomes unmanageable.

Dangers of Sleep Apnea

Not only are these constant disruptions annoying and bad for your concentration the next day, they can also be dangerous for your health. It’s really hard on your heart to continuously stop and then restart breathing like that-some people experience hundreds of disruptions per night!

Ongoing untreated Sleep Apnea can lead to more serious consequences, such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, and strokes.

Maybe you’ve heard of or had experience with a Cpap machine. It is apparatus that you wear during the night to force air into your lungs so that you don’t stop breathing. This treatment works well for some, but others find the machine cumbersome, loud, and sometimes even more annoying than the snoring itself.

Orthodontic Care for Sleep Apnea

Dr. Vickie Greenberg understands the importance of good sleep. She has dedicated much of her 25 years of experience as an Orthodontist learning to treat sleep disorders using non-invasive and non-surgical techniques.

Dr. Greenberg will conduct a thorough examination and interview to understand exactly how your sleep problems are presenting and design a treatment plan that will work for you and your lifestyle.

Dentofacial orthodontics uses Palatal expanders to widen the airway so that the passageway is no longer obstructed while you sleep. These are specifically designed to fit inside your mouth, so no noisy appliances or excess apparatus to deal with.

She also utilizes the Fotona Laser for Sleep Apnea patients; safe, gentle, painless laser technology used to tighten the palate and make for an unobstructed airway.

These are just 2 of the methods Dr. Greenberg uses to treat Sleep Apnea and snoring, that don’t involve surgery or intensive long term treatment. She enjoys a challenge, and thrives on creatively discovering ways to improve the sleep of her patients without surgery or extractions.

Many of her patients have come to her after being told surgery was necessary-and she found a way to avoid it.

Stop Suffering from TMJ and Jaw Pain!

You can end your suffering from TMJ and jaw pain, and you don’t have to undergo costly and invasive surgeries to do so!

Dr. Vickie Greenberg has dedicated much of her career to combating TMJ and Jaw Pain using non-surgical and non-invasive orthodontic techniques. No one should have to live with chronic pain, so if you suffer from TMJ or Jaw Pain, read on to learn more about Dr. Greenbergs holistic approach to treating it.

What exactly is TMJ?

TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint, and “TMJ” typically refers to pain within that joint. The pain can be caused by a variety of things; injury, teeth-grinding, age, arthritis, and even stress can lead to TMJ.

Regardless of what exactly causes the pain, it can be debilitating. The TMJ is a joint that acts as a sliding hinge between the jaw and the skull. Pain here can hinder chewing, speaking, yawning, and even taking deep breaths.

Some people may experience earaches, headaches, or popping sounds in the ears. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, and have yet to determine the cause, you may be suffering TMJ Syndrome, or TMD (Temporomandibular Disorder).

How Can You Treat TMJ?

The first step towards treatment is accurately diagnosing your TMJ. Dr. Greenberg prefers a “less is best” approach in her practice, and avoids surgery and other invasive procedures whenever possible. If you do have a TMJ diagnosis, or think you may, Dr. Greenberg will go out of her way to treat you effectively without invasive techniques.

Many cases of TMJ require the use of Dentofacial orthodontic devices, which will help to realign a misaligned jaw bite, or reposition teeth that are contributing to that misalignment.

Dr. Greenberg has over 25 years of experience in dentofacial orthodontics, and uses her compassion and empathy to put even the most anxious of patients at ease.

Dr. Vickie Greenberg Treats TMJ and Jaw Pain

Pain is no fun. The thing about pain is it affects every aspect of your life. It hinders your sleep, it distracts you from daily tasks, and chronic long term pain can start affecting other parts of your body. A bad knee can lead to a bad hip and the pain lingers on and on.

Did you know that TMJ and Jaw pain can affect your entire body? It can! That’s why Dr. Vickie Greenberg has made TMJ and Jaw pain a focus of her orthodontic practice. No one should have to live in pain, and jaw pain can be absolutely debilitating.

What is TMJ?

The temporomandibular joint is a like sliding hinge that connects your jawbone to your skull. TMJ refers to any number of disorders that can cause pain in your jaw. TMJ is caused by many things, including injury, arthritis, clenching or grinding your teeth, and even genetics.

Often people grind their teeth without realizing it, and that can be caused by uneven or misaligned teeth. This can be treated with orthodontics, and Dr. Greenberg uses a holistic approach to treat TMJ. She appreciates that the body works as a whole made up of many parts.

When one part of your body stops working correctly, or causes you pain, the rest of your body quickly starts to feel the effects.

How do you Treat TMJ?

Dr. Greenberg has had great success treating TMJ with conservative and gentle techniques. She takes great care to avoid surgery whenever possible and believes that it should be a last resort.

Dr. Greenberg advocates using the latest and best technology in her office, and has had great success using the Fotona Laser to treat pain in TMJ cases. It works by reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow to the area.

Dentofacial orthodontic devices may be necessary to correct an improper bite in some cases of TMJ. When your teeth are misaligned, chewing may cause damage in your TMJ. Correcting that bite can effectively treat the cause of your pain symptoms.

Schedule with Dr. Vickie Greenberg Today!

There’s no reason for you to continue living in pain. TMJ pain can be debilitating after prolonged suffering. Your sleep can be affected, the foods you choose to eat may not be best for optimal health, and your professional and social life can become difficult to manage.

If you have kids, you know that life is about to get hectic. The school year tends to get busier and busier as time rolls on, so get your appointments set up for orthodontic treatment soon so that you don’t have to worry about it later!

Orthodontics for Kids

It is recommended that kids see an orthodontist by the time they are 7. That may seem young, but an orthodontist may be able to spot potential problems before they become more serious.

Technology has come so far in such a short period of time that all aspects of orthodontia are easier than ever before-especially if you catch the problem early!

Orthodontics for Teens

When you think of teenagers and orthodontics you may be picturing metal braces. Nowadays Invisalign® aligners are accessible to patients of all ages, and that includes your selfie-happy teenagers!

Teenagers tend to perform very well with Invisalign, better than their parents expect much of the time. They are virtually invisible, so that goes over well for self-conscious teenagers, but there are other benefits as well.

Invisalign aligners can be removed for the sake of eating and cleaning your teeth. They also consist of less hardware than metal braces, so there is less potential for damage or breakage, meaning fewer appointments with the orthodontist!

If your teenager needs orthodontic care, and you wonder if Invisalign might be an option, schedule with Dr. Vickie Greenberg today! She is a Diamond Status Invisalign Provider, and the best in the business!

Using Orthodontics to treat Sleep Apnea

Sleeping is one of the most important things we can do to keep our bodies and our mind functioning properly. Disturbances in sleep can be caused by Sleep Apnea, and Dr. Vickie Greenberg in Pasadena is on the forefront of using Orthodontics to treat it.

Read on to learn more about Sleep Apnea, and if an orthodontic approach may be right for you.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep Apnea causes difficulties in breathing during sleep. The person suffering may wake up several times during the night without being aware of it, and the condition is usually accompanied by snoring.

Sleep Apnea can be dangerous to your health. You won’t necessarily be aware of the sleep disruptions, though your partner probably will be. You will notice the affects the next day because they lead to drowsiness, irritability, difficulties with concentrating, and all of the other not so fun things that go along with poor sleep.

Waking up several times a night can cause your blood pressure to rise, which can lead to more serious consequences, such as heart attack or stroke.

It’s not healthy in the long or short term to have your breathing interrupted like this. Snoring is tough on a relationship, and the repercussions can cause many undesirable consequences to your lifestyle and health. Fortunately there are a number of treatment options available for Sleep Apnea.

Dr. Vickie Greenberg embraces a holistic approach to her Sleep Apnea cases. As with any health problem, each person is different.  Dr. Greenberg understands that different treatments work for different people, and is passionate about some new options available such as the Fotona Laser.

Treatment Options for Sleep Apnea

One option for sleep apnea that you’ve probably heard of is the CPAP machine. It consists of a mask and  wear while you sleep, connected to a breathing. It works by increasing the air pressure in your throat so that the airway doesn’t collapse upon exhaling, which is what causes the snoring.

Another treatment option is a fitted mouthpiece, also to be worn during sleep. They work by repositioning the jaw or tongue so that the airway is not obstructed. These can be effective also. They may be more desirable than the cumbersome mask and tube and machine that a CPAP consists of, and may be sufficient for many cases.

One approach Dr. Greenberg uses for treating sleep apnea is the Fotona Laser. This is a non-surgical “rejuvenating” laser, which tightens the tissue in the palate by enhancing collagen. This widens out the airway, lessening the source of the airway obstruction that causes the snoring.

Which Option is Best for You

Dr. Greenberg looks at each Sleep Apnea cases individually. Every patient is different, with different lifestyles, and different consequences as a result of their Sleep Apnea. A treatment that works beautifully for one patient may not be desirable or effective for another. And every patient deserves the personalized and unique care that is necessary to improve the quality of their sleep and lives.

There is no reason to keep suffering with difficulties in sleeping! Snoring can be difficult for entire families, and so can constant fatigue, which leads to other health issues.

If you have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, or think you may have a Sleep Apnea Diagnosis, make an appointment with Dr. Vickie Greenberg today! She offers free consultations to first time visitors. She is located in Pasadena, and serves patients from Altadena, and all over the San Gabriel Valley. So call today at (626) 798-7645, and start sleeping better tomorrow!

Is Invisalign Right for My Teen?

Compliance is extremely important with Invisalign. They have to be worn in order to work, and for some teens the temptation to leave them out after eating or brushing can be strong.

Most teenagers perform really well with Invisalign though. Parents are often pleasantly surprised at their kids ability to remember to put them back in, and to keep track of them when they’re out.
