First Visit

Happy married coupleDuring you initial consultation, we will perform a TMJ exam that clinically evaluates function of the jaw joint, range of motion, skeletal morphology/posture, and palpation of the associated muscles. Problems may include swelling, deterioration of the joint tissue, or dislocation of the soft cushion disc between the condyle and fossa. Common pain relievers and cold compresses can provide temporary relief for most cases of TMD.

After your examination, we will make a treatment plan, and you will leave with a full understanding of your condition.
