TMJ Disorder

As your Tacoma family dentists, we’re committed to providing comprehensive care to ensure optimal overall wellness. This includes taking a comprehensive approach to your dental care that looks beyond the teeth, such as TMJ treatment.

Are you suffering from the following symptoms?

  • Chronic headaches or migraines
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Tingling fingers
  • Popping in the jaw when chewing
  • Worn teeth
  • Facial, neck or upper back pain

All of these symptoms are signs you could be experiencing an unbalanced jaw joint, also known as the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This means your TMJ and bite are not in harmony with each other. Fortunately, there are non-invasive solutions to help relieve your pain.

How can you get out of pain?

There are multiple solutions you can pursue to help relieve your pain. With our Tacoma dentists, we can use:

  • Nightguards: When you sleep, you may be grinding your teeth, which is a standard indicator of TMJ disorder. Custom-fitted nightguards can protect your teeth from the nightly grind and relieve your pain.
  • Dermal Fillers: On top of getting a cosmetic benefit, Dermal Fillers can help relieve TMJ pain and chronic headaches.

Absolutely the best team of dental experts around. I have been a patient of Dr. Macks since the late 1980s. I grind my teeth and have broken several, necessitating four implants. There can be a lot stress involved in such a dental history, but these folks make me feel right at home and well cared for no matter what issue I present. I'll never go anywhere else. I'm a life timer.

The best experience I’ve ever had. I have been to plenty of places for my Botox none of them compare to the experience I had. They were clean professional friendly 100% amazing

Wow! I had 10 root canals & lots of dental trauma before I gave up & got dentures... I only wore them when I had to, as despite many adjustments, they never fit, and made my mouth's roof & gums terribly sore, for years... Then a friend told me to see Dr.Machs. His education, background, & range of experience are stunning (I don't stun, as a rule...). As an RN, I didn't believe this Ievel of thorough evaluation, information, & genuine care was possible in this life. I can't recommend him and the staff highly enough.
