Temporomandibular joint disorders (known as TMJ or TMD), affect millions of people worldwide, causing discomfort and pain in the jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement. At our office, we understand the impact that TMJ can have on your daily life, including difficulties in chewing, jaw pain and even headaches. Our goal is to provide effective and compassionate treatment to alleviate these symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Our approach to TMJ treatment is holistic and patient-centered, focusing on identifying the root cause of your symptoms to offer the most effective treatment. Our orthodontists will begin with a comprehensive evaluation, using the latest diagnostic tools to assess the health of your jaw joint and the surrounding muscles. This may include digital imaging and physical examinations to understand the complexity of your condition.

Treatment options vary depending on the severity and cause of your TMJ disorder. They can range from noninvasive therapies such as physical therapy, exercises and the use of oral appliances to more advanced treatments like orthodontic interventions or, in rare cases, surgery. Our orthodontists and team specialize in creating customized treatment plans that may include braces or clear aligners to correct misalignments that contribute to TMJ symptoms.

We are committed to providing a comfortable and supportive environment for you. Education plays a crucial role in our treatment plans, as we believe in empowering you with knowledge about your condition and the steps you can take to manage symptoms effectively at home.
