What is TMJ therapy, and how can it help my migraines?
TMJ refers to the temporomandibular joints, which connect the jaw to the skull near your ears. TMJ dysfunction, also called neuromuscular dysfunction or TMD, occurs when the jaw joints are improperly aligned. Misalignment can create nerve and muscle problems, which contribute to grinding and clenching, and in turn, this results in wear on the teeth. Migraines, tingling of the extremities, popping in the jaw, pain in and around the face, neck, and shoulders, and other antagonistic or debilitating symptoms can result.
Dr. Webberson is trained in non-surgical TMJ therapy, so he can resolve most TMJ dysfunction by finding the optimal jaw alignment and using oral appliances to reposition the jaw. If you suffer from TMJ dysfunction, you deserve relief! Call Dr. Webberson's office today to schedule a consultation.
How can I improve my smile?
The techniques we will recommend to enhance your smile depend upon the condition of your teeth and your goals. Teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, natural-looking restorations, and prosthetics are a few options. Dr. Webberson will be glad to offer a comprehensive evaluation of your smile and your goals so that he can create a custom smile makeover plan to give you the precise look you want.
Are you accepting new patients?
Of course! We appreciate your referrals and want to assure you that your friends and relatives will receive the same TLC that you do in our office.
Do you accept dental insurance?
