Occlusal Problems

The term "occlusion" refers to how you teeth come together while you bite or chew while you are awake and during sleep. Occlusion problems result when the alignment of the upper and lower teeth is off. Teeth may be damaged or even destroyed as a result of occlusion problems. Proper treatment of these problems may eliminate pain and headaches and fix your bite so that it is healthy.

TMJ Disorders

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jawbone to your skull. This joint serves as a hinge and can cause pain in your jaw joint. Pain may be a result of injury to the jaw or arthritis. The pain and discomfort from TMJ disorders can be eliminated with self directed care or surgical repair.
