TMD – TMJ
Relief From Sore Jaw & Headaches
If you experience headaches, sore jaw joints or other painful symptoms, Dr. Warren Roberts can make a real difference in the quality of your daily life. You can also enjoy more reasons to smile, when you feel the difference TMD treatment with our qualified Vancouver dentists can make.
Muscle imbalance and uneven biting surfaces can lead to a variety of problems including:
- Severe headaches possibly including stiff neck and shoulders
- Excessive clenching and grinding of your teeth
- Stiff or tender jaw with difficulty and pain when moving your jaw
- Worn or chipped teeth
An Effective Solution
A comprehensive examination and sophisticated computer analysis of muscle activity can determine the source of your symptoms and allow neuromuscular realignment of your bite in a comfortable, balanced position. Perhaps less well known is that the neuro-modulator botulinum toxin (aka Botox) is also highly effective in relaxing muscles that are responsible for headache pain and grinding or “bruxism”. Both Drs. Janet and Warren Roberts are recognized as being leaders in this area; their teaching academy the “Pacific Training Institute for Facial Aesthetics” (PTIFA) is internationally known for training dentists, medical doctors and nurses in the use of Botox® for therapeutic treatment of TMD as well as cosmetics.
Computerized sensors and scanning technology may be utilized to analyze your bite, its force and its timing. Vivid computer graphics assists Dr. Roberts in seeing the balance of an ideal bite and make determinations and adjustments to achieve your optimum bite balance. Dr. Roberts will carefully review all the information to make a sound diagnosis and treatment plan specifically designed for you. This will include all of the various treatment options to restore your mouth to optimum health and give you your most beautiful smile as well.
These findings and treatment options will be thoroughly explained to you. Dr. Roberts will answer any questions you may have to ensure that ultimately you obtain a thorough understanding of your dental conditions and the treatment options available to restore you to optimum dental health and develop a beautiful smile you are proud to show.
