About Us

At VIA Health Group, we are privileged to serve patients in and around Canton, the greater Akron, and the northeast Ohio region. However, we also have patients who travel from other states, often long distances, to benefit from our team’s considerable skill and an array of sophisticated, in-house technologies. Our dentist, Dr. Jeff Danner, is a craniofacial sleep medicine certified provider. That means that Dr. Danner has the depth and breadth of training and expertise to effectively, comfortably, and promptly resolve jaw and facial pain, stiffness, migraines, and other chronic symptoms that can adversely affect your day-to-day life and overall well-being.

Dr. Danner’s extensive international training in the highly specialized area of craniofacial pain, temporomandibular joint (jaw joint) dysfunction or disorders, sleep-disordered breathing and sleep apnea, and bruxism (teeth grinding) has restored the quality of life for individuals near and far who formerly suffered from persistent migraines, jaw locking or mobility issues, daytime fatigue, and other symptoms of these conditions (or related conditions). Disorders such as sleep apnea have been associated with several dangerous complications, including an increased risk of developing hypertension and cardiovascular incidents. It has been highly satisfying for our team to transform our patients’ lives for the better and to help them to avoid potentially life-altering complications. 

Treatment, not just “symptom relief”

Additionally, we can facilitate these transformations conservatively, efficiently, and non-invasively with oral appliance therapy. Oral appliances promote healthy breathing by repositioning the tissues that block the airway during sleep. The tongue and throat tissues may become so lax that they prevent uninterrupted breathing through the night. It is essential to get to the root cause of the problem, which provides sustained relief and real change. For us, intervention is about more than merely “masking” the problem or resolving the symptoms with pain-relieving drugs. 

We may find that orthodontic problems are to blame for conditions such as TMJDs; for instance, treatment may be necessary to bring harmony and balance to the interconnected oral structures and tissues that support healthy function. Proper alignment and bite release the stress placed on the TM joints, which leads to the likes of radiating facial pain, tension headaches, earaches, jaw locking, and tinnitus (“ringing of the ears”). The root cause of these symptoms can often be corrected without cumbersome, low-compliance CPAP therapy or invasive and unnecessary surgical interventions. 

Advanced precision diagnostics further complements Dr. Danner’s considerable experience and expertise. We use non-invasive digital scanning and advanced 3-D radiography (x-rays) to accurately evaluate the anatomical features of your mouth and associated structures. These tools give us a clear and detailed picture of the state and function of the oral cavity and maxillofacial tissues, which is then applied to inform the most effective treatment plans to resolve the underlying problem(s) or imbalances efficiently. Move forward from your symptoms. Enjoy your life to the fullest. Start the process today by calling us at (330) 915-3390 or filling out the pre-screening assessment on this website.
