TMJ Disorder

It is perfectly reasonable to go to the doctor of the dentist to get out of pain. If you are in pain, you hope it is possible to diagnose the cause of the pain so it can be treated and/or repaired. However, what happens when you go to the doctor and the source of the pain can‘t be found? Most typically, pain medications are recommended. Sometimes the pain goes away. Sometimes it does not.

Treating TMJ

When I treat a patient with TMJ, it is always such a great experience to see them getting around without the chronic pain or pain medications they have been living with for a long time. Most TMJ patients live with the pain longer than most would expect. Then, after they finally get treatment from me or another neuromuscular dentist, they all say, "What took me so long?" Good question.

If you do, it’s important that they know a missing tooth can cause bone loss in the jaw, leading to very serious dental and medical conditions. Do you know that hollow, sunken look people can get when they have missing teeth? That is the result of atrophy caused by missing teeth.

White fillings

Most people will agree that white fillings look much better and more natural than the dark gray or black amalgam fillings you see in the teeth of many older people. But, looking better is only a good side-benefit for this kind of filling because white fillings, or composite filings, are much healthier than old metal fillings.

What you don’t know about TMJ can cause a lot of pain.

I treat one of the most misunderstood and therefore misdiagnosed disorders: tempromandibular joint disorder. I know, that’s a mouthful. Maybe you know it better as TMJ. Most people have heard of TMJ, thinking it is all about jaw pain. TMJ disorder is centered around a misalignment of the jaw but the disorder is far more reaching than only jaw pain. In fact, that is what is so misunderstood about TMJ disorder.
