TMJ/TMD Therapy

Dentists are not solely paying attention to your teeth and gums when performing routine exams. They’re also making sure that your bite remains even and confirming if the pain is present when performing basic tasks (biting, chewing, moving your jaw, etc.) If you’re experiencing chronic jaw pain or popping/clicking of the jaw, it may be […]
