Each TMJ connects the jaw to the skull and performs various vital tasks. When these joints are injured or swollen, patients may feel chronic headaches and migraines, earaches, jaw clicking and popping, lockjaw, or stiffness that disrupts primary function.
These symptoms could be caused by issues with your "bite" or the connection between opposing teeth in your lower and upper jaws. Your bite may be uneven because of misalignment of the jaws as they formed or because of obsolete or old dental restorations like crowns.
Dr. B's comprehensive knowledge of oral and maxillofacial anatomy and function is supplemented by sophisticated diagnostic technologies that reveal the type and source of your TMJ problems.
Dr. B works with each patient to establish a specific therapy recommendation based on the results of diagnostic tools such as Joint Vibration Analysis, Electromyography, and T-Scan Occlusal Analysis, together with his experience and skills.
Just as there are numerous causes of TMJDs, multiple treatment choices are specifically tailored to your needs. Patients can often find comfort without invasive surgical therapies. Free yourself from chronic TMJ pain by calling
