If your jaw pops or locks, if you have jaw pain or frequent headaches, or if you have unnecessarily worn, chipped, or broken teeth, you may be experiencing TMJ disorder. If your jaw is misaligned, it can cause many systemic symptoms and even long-lasting damage. Instead of just treating the pain and discomfort of TMJ disorder, we treat the source. We begin with a non-surgical TMJ treatment utilizing bite splint therapy to realign the jaw in the proper position for good function. Correct alignment of the jaw will relieve pain and protect the teeth from further damage and excessive wear.
This non-surgical TMJ treatment is designed to treat and fix the problem and not just the symptoms. Dr. Michalski has extensive training in all aspects of dental care, and he understands the necessity of enabling proper jaw function with all of the dental restorations, cosmetic enhancements, and implant dentistry treatments he performs.
