Have you ever experienced pain or swelling in your face or neck area? Do you have trouble chewing or feel discomfort in your jaw area when eating? These are just a few symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder. Also known as TMJ, this disorder is most common among people between the ages of 20 and 40. While the direct cause of TMJ are unknown, some reasons may include jaw injury, teeth grinding or clinching, or joint arthritis. Additional symptoms of TMJ can include: jaw popping and stiffness, migraines, misaligned teeth, eye pain, and ear aches.

The experienced team at Advanced Dentistry offer state-of-the-art technology and expertise to identify and treat TMJ-related causes and symptoms, giving you normal jaw function and comfortability again. Their unmatched treatment options include:
- K7 Evaluation System: a revolutionary tool that takes a deeper look into the health of your jaw, this system records the sounds of your jaws, identifies any jaw movement irregularities, and measures jaw muscle activity. These measurements are used to create an individualized plan to treat your TMJ.
- Tekscan T-Scan®: An innovative digital bite sensor that determines exactly how much force you’re applying to each of your teeth when you bite down. It identifies how that force develops and specific teeth that are most affected, as irregular, forceful biting can lead to TMJ and cause tooth damage.
- Restorative Dentistry: Missing or misaligned teeth can impact your bite and cause TMJ symptoms.
