Imagine your life with less pain, restful and healthy sleep and restored functionThat’s our mission at The Berkshire TMJ Center.

Do you suffer from Headaches? Jaw and Neck pain? Has anyone ever told you, you snore? Unable to get a restful night’s sleep?

Here at The Berkshire Center for Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine©, we believe that happy lives start with good overall health and well-being.

Nestled in the tranquil hills of Berkshire County MA, The Berkshire Center for Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine© is an integrative pain management and dental sleep medicine center dedicated to treating patients who suffer from the pain and dysfunction of the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ), Head, Neck and Face Pain as well as helping people diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

Changing lives, saving lives!

Studies indicate that about one out of three people who snore, may have sleep apnea! As many as 45million people are affected by sleep apnea, but don’t know they experience it while they sleep. 90% remain undiagnosed!!!

This is a major health problem- with a rise in uncontrolled high blood pressure, diabetes, risk of stroke and heart attacks, automobile accidents, obesity, daytime sleepiness, depression and other health consequences that can decrease the quality of life, not mention increase medical costs for care. Families are affected, in fact the spouse or bed partner loses 67 minutes of sleep each night from a snoring bed partner!

We treat people diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea with oral appliances therapy which help to maintain an open airway at night. By working with sleep physicians, we assist in the care of people diagnosed with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea or those who are unable or unwilling to use positive airway pressure (CPAP) at night, with a comfortable and effective means to improve their breathing while asleep.

Snoring stops, restful, healthy sleep returns!
