Diagnosing TMJ Disorder
The First Step Toward Relief in Alexandria
The Academy of General Dentistry has published studies showing that 1 in 8 Americans suffer from headaches. Furthermore, the National Institute of Health estimates that more than 10 million Americans have problems affecting their jaw joints and muscles. Statistics like that are why we chose to offer TMJ Disorder treatments to our patients. We really care about your health and comfort and will do everything in our power to help you find relief.
How Will You Diagnose my TMJ Disorder?
Diagnosis and evaluation is an essential part of TMD treatment. Knowing exactly what is causing your TMJ Disorder helps us create the most comfortable and effective treatment solutions possible. We use a variety of high-tech diagnostic tools such as Doppler Auscultation – an ultrasound technology that helps us listen to the vibrating surfaces – and transcranial radiographs to reveal joint damage, fractures or tumors that could be contributing to your TMJ disorder.
It’s your first step toward relief.
