Choose Your TreatmentChoose Your Treatment

The correct choice of treatment for you will be a matter of your needs, and your priorities. We schedule consultations in a relaxed environment to assist you in your decisions. Perhaps the most overlooked aspect of carefully thought out treatment planning is the 'open ended treatment plan'.

Brushing Your Teeth ProperlyBrushing Your Teeth Properly

There is probably no greater range of qualities, expertise, and cost among dental services offered in the United States than with dentures. Constructing your dentures from start to finish in my personal lab assures you the best results attainable.

Accidents happen! Trauma care usually involves the highest level of expertise. I have treated everything from gunshot wounds to dog attacks to automobile accidents. Probably the most common source of injury is occupational.

Understanding TMD

Have you heard the term “TMD” and wondered exactly what it was? Perhaps you’ve even heard it from your dentist, but never really understood what having “TMD” meant? We wanted to take a little time and talk about this condition, including what it is and what you can do about it.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) is a misunderstood condition that often goes undiagnosed and untreated. It can cause so many different types of discomfort that it’s hard to  know if your symptoms are connected to it or due to something else entirely. This is why TMD is often called “the great impostor.”

At the heart of TMD is the temporomandibular joint, otherwise known as TMJ. This joint is very complex and unlike any other joint in your body. Your jaw has two of these joints, and they must work together in perfect harmony to allow for the complicated motion needed to eat.

If something goes wrong, problems like TMD can result. Some of the most common symptoms of TMD include:

  • Pain, tenderness in the jaw
  • Tired jaw muscles
  • Migraines or frequent headaches
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Trouble opening your mouth widely
  • Clicking or popping when opening or closing your mouth

A number of things can lead to TMD, including poorly aligned teeth, teeth grinding or even accidents. Unfortunately, if left untreated TMD can lead to larger dental problems. It’s also painful to live with, especially if you find yourself dealing with headaches and jaw pain.

If you suspect you have this condition, then it’s important to see a dentist as soon as possible. They can help diagnose the problem and create a treatment plan based on your unique situation.
