Adult orthodontics and porcelain veneers with TMJ
Background/ situation: The patient was self conscious about her teeth and smile. She wanted the most conservative and long lasting result for improving dental function and enhancing her smile.
Solution: We recommended orthodontics to improve her bite, resolve her TMJ and improve chewing function. To esthetically improve her smile, we suggested placing only four porcelain veneers on her front upper teeth for a fuller, more beautiful smile.
Adult Orthodontics for pain and TMJ
Background/ situation: Patient had significant pain and long-standing discomfort in her face, jaws, neck and shoulders.
Solution: We recommended orthodontic treatment to correct her bite and stabilize her TMJ. We restored her ability to chew properly without pain and discomfort.
Chronic head and neck pain is constant discomfort that can vary during the night and day.
Daily headaches are common and quite frequent in people with a bad bite, TMJ or inability to chew properly. While there are many ways to treat frequent headaches and painful neck and shoulder, proper diagnosis is essential.
With the right diagnosis we are able to customize treatment that will cost effectively eliminate the causes of pain.
