This is a book discussing the interrelationship between TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) problems and those associated with Sleep Disorders and the number of factors affecting the two often interrelated entities. It opens with how the author’s personal problems led her to further study of the situation and how to correct it. Then – Acknowledgments; a Forward by her acknowledged mentor, Steven R. Olmos, DDS, Founder, TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centers Int’l.; an Introduction; eight chapters; Closing Testimonials; “How to Contact Us” and 50 references to conclude the book. The specific chapters provide a discussion of the often erroneously offered diagnosis of “It’s All in your Head”; descriptions of TMJ and Sleep Apnea; Diagnosis thereof; The need for individualized treatment plans; Youth Snoring and its importance; Prevention by assuring proper structural/functional growth in early years; Importance of proper diet, and finally a summation detailing why “It’s Not All in your Head”.
Discussion: The substance of this presentation has much to offer persons with any of the multitudinous problems associated with inability to sleep properly. Simultaneously it provides similar material for individuals suffering from the often closely associated and undiagnosed head, neck, shoulder and arm pain, as well as occasional others as disclosed by the author. The only regrettably unfortunate aspect of the book is the overwhelming amount of repetition, occasionally even in successive paragraphs.
Conclusion: A worthwhile contribution in dire need of judicious editing.
