Understanding CPAP and Its Connection to TMJ

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is a widely recognized treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a common sleep disorder characterized by interruptions in breathing during sleep. CPAP therapy involves wearing a mask connected to a machine that delivers a steady stream of air pressure, effectively keeping the airway open throughout the night. While CPAP is primarily associated with managing sleep apnea, its benefits extend beyond just improving breathing patterns during sleep. Interestingly, CPAP therapy can also play a significant role in addressing temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues.

CPAP therapy is often recommended for individuals with TMJ disorders, particularly those whose symptoms are exacerbated by sleep apnea. TMJ disorders involve dysfunction or pain in the temporomandibular joint, which connects your jawbone to your skull. Sleep apnea and TMJ disorders frequently coexist, as both can result from underlying issues such as airway obstruction or improper jaw alignment. By utilizing CPAP therapy to alleviate sleep apnea symptoms, patients may experience a reduction in TMJ-related discomfort and associated symptoms like jaw pain, headaches, and facial tension.
