Tired of TMJ treatments or exercises that only provide temporary pain relief? Want to avoid surgery?

Dr. Steve Gorman’s approach to treating temporomandibular disorder (TMD) involves non-invasive dentistry that focuses on finding the best position for your jaw and bite.

From there, we’ll recommend a custom dental treatment plan, which will maintain your alignment long-term.

The end result?

You’ll no longer wake up with headaches, stiff jaw, or feeling unrested, and your teeth will be protected from damage caused by teeth grinding and uneven wear.

You’ll finally get to enjoy life’s finer moments, such as eating your favorite foods without discomfort!

TMJ Evalutation

Dr. Gorman treats underlying issues for long-term results, not just symptoms or aesthetics.

That’s why he includes a TMJ screening in every comprehensive exam, whether you have issues or not.

To check for TMD, he’ll watch how your jaw opens and closes, check x-rays for structural impairment, address symptoms, and see if there are discrepancies between your bite and jaw closing.

TMJ Splint Therapy

The first step in treatment is relaxing your jaw muscles. Split therapy allows you to wear a custom dental appliance to gradually move your bite and jaw into their ideal position.

Over time, Dr. Gorman will adjust your splint, which will continue to relax your muscles and diminish your symptoms.

Once Dr. Gorman finds your perfect bite, we’ll create a custom dental plan to keep your bite and jaw position in place.

The end result is a painless and problem-free smile that lasts a lifetime!
