Magnolia Dental Care - Seattle, WA

The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is the joint that connects your lower and upper jaw. A healthy TMJ allows you to speak, eat, smile, and yawn comfortably. When the TMJ becomes inflamed, you may experience TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorder.

TMD Symptoms

Several symptoms of TMD appear to have nothing to do with the jaw, which is why it is often difficult to diagnose. Some of them include:

  • Ear aches or ringing of the ears
  • Shoulder, neck, or jaw pain
  • Popping or clicking sounds when your jaw is in use

Diagnosis

Magnolia Dental Care utilizes advanced equipment, including the Tek-scan, that allows us to analyze a person’s bite utilizing a computer generated graph. Dr. Moberly, a TMJ specialist, and the Magnolia Dental Care team provide personalized TMJ treatment options so you can achieve dental and overall well-being.

Magnolia Dental Care offers several TMD treatment options that remedy the uncomfortable symptoms by utilizing an occlusal orthotic, or bite splint. This type of treatment helps restore the bite, allowing it to function without causing damage as well as providing stability that gives support to the teeth, gums and bone.
