At TMJ+, we want to eliminate your pain, but in the meantime we want to manage it. The first step in resolving your pain and other TMJ disorder symptoms can include one or a combination of these methods:
Long Lasting Relief
We are ultimately going to eliminate your pain. This will be done through a two-phase process that takes into account every element of your body, seeking the source of your pain and addressing it head on.
- TMJ Orthodic
- Night Bite Reposition Appliance
- Oral Sleep Appliance
- Decay Removal
- Infection Removal
The goal for phase 1 is to quickly relieve pain points and infection. Phase 1 is the guide to long-term treatment and the precursor to phase 2 for long lasting results!
- TMJ Orthodontics
- TMJ Bite Rehabilitation
- TMJ Dentures
After Phase 1 when a patient has relief of pain/symptoms, we will choose the best long term solutions. This could mean orthodontics that keep your bite positioned in orthodic for 3-4 months. You have an end result that achieves more pain relief, a broader smile, airway for sleeping, helping improve health and a more youthful face.
For someone that does not want braces there are solutions that allow for a faster end result, such as restorations that are built to the pain free position of the orthodic.
My approach is to provide advanced solutions and pain relief. I focus most on the concerns of what started this and why. We begin looking at the source of your problem! I evaluate the dental arch development along with the many other health factors, which is the plus in the name TMJ Plus.
The plus represents more of what I do as a biological dentist; it means I care about more than just the mouth. I look for toxic triggers in your mouth, and how your dental toxicity shows up in other area of your body. I look for areas of infection and inflammation in the mouth as well as airway to have oxygen for a healthy you. When I get to work with your physician and your other wellness providers, I aim to positively influence your health!
