From our Dawson Academy-Trained Doctors
Chronic jaw pain, tense neck muscles and tooth aches are some of the symptoms of TMJ inflammation. If you have been diagnosed with temporomandibular disorder (TMD), you need to see one of our specialists for treatment options that will restore jaw health.
Experience the Dawson Difference at Standley Shores Dental Group! Our highly trained doctors have worked on all types of TMJ disorder cases and have extensive experience working with patients suffering from the debilitating effects of TMJ pain.
You can take control of TMJ pain and enjoy a better quality of life. Many patients are simply enduring pain and discomfort every day but things can get worse without timely intervention and treatment. If you feel like you are missing out on life because of TMD, living a pain-free lifestyle may be as simple as getting an occlusal adjustment (bite adjustment), breaking a teeth grinding habit and improving the function of your bite.
Some of the most common symptoms of TMJ disorder include:
Your visit will begin with an in-depth TMJ exam where we will analyze the jaw joint and assess your bite. This is a critical step in the treatment planning process because it allows us to determine exactly where the root of the problem lies. Instead of just prescribing pain medication and recommending jaw exercises to alleviate pain in the short-term, we will analyze jaw function in depth using Dawson Academy methods and techniques. From there, we will determine if we need to perform a bite adjustment, tooth restorations or fit with you a night guard that would stop a teeth grinding habit.
You can get relief from TMJ pain sooner than you think! Schedule your appointment with one of our doctors today.Patient Testimonials Request Appointment
During routine check-ups, Dr. Stang realized that there was some unnatural wear that was on my teeth, and recommended a nightguard. I mentioned that I had migraines as well and he said the nightguard could help that as well. Since I've had the nightguard, when I wake up in the morning it seems like my jaw and my mouth is not so tensed up and I do see a difference in the headaches as well.See More Reviews
