Welcome to TMJ and Sleep Therapy Center of Omaha! We are a team of professionals dedicated to promoting health and wellness for all our patients. Proper sleep is essential for the maintenance of normal body functioning. Loss of sleep and chronic pain associated with TMJ bruxism and/or clenching is a common but poorly understood phenomenon.
Although we deliver a wide range of dental services to our patients, we have a special interest in treating sleep disordered breathing. Sleep apnea is a type of breathing disorder which is a potentially life-threatening condition characterized by brief interruptions of breathing during sleep and a subsequent drop in blood oxygen levels. Along with a generally decreased quality of life, people who suffer from sleep apnea also experience an increased risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, sexual dysfunction and depression.
Dr. Robin Khan understands the physical stresses and health risks that come with sleepless nights. Years of experience with the latest treatment techniques to help reduce and even eliminate sleep problems are now available to you. As a member of American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, Dr. Khan is uniquely qualified to deliver these services to patients Omaha. Her continued dedication to the study and treatment of Sleep Apnea and TMJ put her in a class of dentists who are getting involved with these health afflications.
We offer alternatives to CPAP which are often equally as effective and much easier to use. Compliance is often as much as 70% greater with Mandibular Repositioning Appliances as compared to CPAPs.
