If you are looking for someone to help you with the cause of your TMJ, headaches, and sleep problems and you want treatment without drugs, you should see Dr. Perkins. He has developed unique and very successful ways to diagnose and treat TMJ problems, headaches and sleep disorders. No other doctor has higher success rate because of the system of treating the cause of many health problems, such as acid reflux, depression, fibromyalgia, neck and back aches, or even teeth grinding. Most of Dr. Perkins’ patients would say his specialized treatment has been life-changing. His approach is also unique because of his personal experience and he knows exactly what his patients are going through.
We specialize in cutting-edge treatment options for TMJ problems, headaches, migraines, and most sleep disorders. The bottom line is overall improvement in health and prevention of future diseases such as acid reflux, high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. In young children we might prevent ADD,ADHD, and other cognitive problems. Dr Perkins is one of the few people who recognizes sleep disorders in children and has been treating young children with these problems for 40 years.The earlier sleep disorders are diagnosed and treated, the less serious health symptoms will develop in the child’s future. Sleep disorders cannot be cured, they must be managed from childhood for proper growth and development. One very important factor for children with sleep problems is removal of tonsils and adenoids by age three if possible.
At your first appointment you will receive a comprehensive exam, including an evaluation of your teeth, your bite, your TMJ (jaw joint), and any possible sleep disorder. Dr Perkins will explain treatment and the long term benefits to you or your child’s health. Be sure to take the TMJ survey and Sleep Disorders survey and Dr. Perkins will call you.
Thank you for helping cure my snoring and headache problem. As a very active triathlete and Ironman competitor, good sleep is critical for recovery and rest. I was in very good shape but was having problems sleeping and snoring. Within a month of getting my new dental appliance, I stopped snoring and I sleep much more soundly. I no longer have headaches and my wife does not have to listen to me snore.
Before I started coming to Dr. Perkins I felt like I wasn't going to make it. I was short of breath and just felt bad. Now after treatment and the follow up visit, I feel great. All my symptoms are gone. No more headaches and I sleep through the night.
Excellent doctor. He fixed my headaches. I was able to get off my CPAP. I feel rested during the day. My TMJ is essentially cured. I was able to reduce my acid reflux medication. I am a physician and I love that we can treat these problems without medication. I have tried oral appliances before and his the only one that works. We have had several follow ups and he rebalances the appliance. This makes a huge difference.
Dr. Perkins has changed my life and thats what he wants to do for all his patients. I can't remember the last time I had slept through the night even with a CPAP machine. The custom appliance I now wear has allowed me to breathe. What more can you ask than to breathe and sleep all night long. Thank you Dr. Perkins - you're the BEST!
I brought my 14 yr. old daughter in to see Dr. Perkins for an ortho appt. What followed truly blew me away! She had just been diagnosed with migraines and referred to a pediatric specialist. Without saying a thing, Dr. Perkins made the same diagnosis on her. Through her consult, he explained how her jaw was moving (not properly) and causing the migraines. I was amazed! Everything he explained just made perfect sense with all she had been experiencing. I am so happy to have found Dr. Perkins ...
