TMJ Dentistry

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is part of the jaw that acts as a hinge connecting the lower jaw to the skull at the temporal bone. When the jaw, TMJ, or surrounding area are hurt or damaged people may suffer from TMD, or temporomandibular disorders. These disorders can be painful and cause the mouth and teeth to become out of alignment and painful too. A TMJ dentist in Richmond TX is specially trained to perform neuromuscular dentistry. This is a remarkable form of dentistry that allows the dentist to track the movement of a patients jaw. A jaw that is not functioning normally is likely to cause pain and discomfort. Not only the mouth and teeth are painful, but possibly the head, neck and ears are too. 

When the TMJ dentist is able to pinpoint the cause of the jaw misaligning, they can determine how to treat the patient. This is fantastic news for those who suffer from jaw pain and disorders. Doctor Mac Lee has studied TMJ dentistry. He is highly trained to treat patients who suffer from jaw disorders. Patients will receive the best care using the most recent technology. Sedation dentistry is available for patients who are feeling anxious, and of course for those needing any form of extensive dental work done. Anyone suffering from jaw pain would be wise to make an appointment and consult with Doctor Mac Lee as soon as possible.
