“If a patient just goes to the dentist and gets a mouth guard without receiving any additional information about how to improve or control the bruxism,” said [Dr. Jamison] Spencer, “it’s like buying a helmet to wear because you’ve been banging your head against the wall for years, without finding out why you’re still banging your head.”
5 Questions You need to ask  before getting an oral appliance.
5 people stand in a line with question marks on their foreheads.

Oral appliance therapy can be a very effective treatment choice for people suffering with obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. However, not all oral appliances are the same, and FAR more important than the oral appliance itself is the experience and skill of the Dentist treating you with the oral appliance therapy.

Here are 5 Questions you need to have answered BEFORE you consider starting oral appliance therapy:

What we do

Our Services

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea is a potentially dangerous disorder characterized by periods of shallow breathing or pauses in breathing while sleeping. We strive to be the best sleep specialist Utah has to offer.

TMJ Therapy

TMD or TMJ is the medical term for dysfunction and pain in the muscles that move the jaw. It may also affect the joints that connect the skull and mandible, causing clicking and other sounds.

Snoring Treatment

Snoring is a major cause of sleep deprivation. Many don’t even realize they snore. It can be incredibly disruptive to your sleep and those around you. Everyone wants a good night sleep!

I have been snoring for years and my wife finally complained enough for me to do something about it. Long story short, my experience at The Center for Sleep Apnea and TMJ has been fantastic every step of the way. The doctors, clinicians and office staff are all friendly and are great at listening to the issues I have been experiencing. The best part is, I don’t snore anymore! My oral appliance is comfortable and not only helps me stop snoring, but helps my wife sleep better as well. Big thanks from me and my wife!

My daughter started treatment 4 years ago for bone loss in her jaw joint. She had great success with the previous provider at the center who retired a year ago. I was nervous about transitioning to a new provider due to the jaw being such a unique specialty. My daughter and I have been extremely pleased with Dr. Mangelson and his knowledge of TMJ treatment and have full trust in him!

The quality of help I received at this office was phenomenal. I came in because I had jaw pain that no one else was able to help me with. The only negative thing I can say is that I waited in the waiting room for almost 10 minutes past my appointment time. Then a clinician named Jake came and brought me back into a room which was very clean and he took my initial information before I met the Dr. The doctor who saw me was Dr Mangelson. He was very funny, friendly and knowledgeable. He patiently answered all my questions and never made me feel like any of my questions were silly. After my appointment, Jake personally walked me to the check out desk where I got checked out with a receptionist before leaving. It was overall a good experience. I received great customer service and the office was kept spotless. But what is most important when going to the doctors office is that they help heal you, and I can honestly say I no longer experience the jaw pain that I had before. Would recommend to a friend.

Finally I have relief from the terrific jaw pain I have been suffering from. For a number of years I have experienced jaw pain and locking. I was referred to Dr. Mangelson who did an unlocking procedure and then fitted me with an orthotic appliance. I have never felt better.I can't thank my dentist enough for referring me.

A friendly and up-beat environment, together with a Doctor and staff who are well educated and trained made for a great experience. I would highly recommend this office to anyone who is experiencing TMJ or has sleep apnea but can’t tolerate CPAP.
