Unparalleled Treatment of TMJ Pain & Dysfunction
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) dysfunction, or TMD, includes chronic pain, clicking, popping, or locking that affects one or both jaw joints’ ability to function correctly. TMD can cause excessive wearing down of the teeth, severe facial pain, and relentless headaches.
Dr. Miller and Dr. Esler both have advanced training in this specialized area of dentistry, and help patients regain an active lifestyle free from the annoying and debilitating symptoms of TMD. Dr. Esler holds Fellowship status with the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dentistry (LVI), the finest postgraduate dental institution in the world. Dr. Miller has completed many advanced courses at LVI as well, and anticipates earning his Fellowship status this year.
Our protocols for TMJ diagnosis and treatment include the latest in sonography, the latest machines and software for 3-D advanced joint imaging and computerized jaw tracking, lasers to treat the joint area, as well as TENS muscle relaxation, EMG (electromyography) muscle and joint analysis, and the newest ‘T-Scan’ computerized bite analysis. With all this technology in-house, rest assured that if you come to us with a problem, we will be able to pinpoint the exact cause, and present you with a long-lasting solution, avoiding jaw surgery in almost all cases.
