TMJ Treatment

TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, is a condition that affects the jaw joint and the muscles controlling jaw movement. It often leads to TMJ symptoms such as jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds, headaches, and difficulty in opening and closing the mouth. We offer comprehensive TMJ treatment, including non-invasive approaches.

Jaw Misalignment Can Disrupt Your Everyday Bite

Ninety-five percent of all head and neck pain is generated by stressful muscular tension from jaw misalignment. This is called occlusal disease, and it contributes to the breakdown of oral and facial comfort and function. Proper jaw alignment and symmetry allow the body to naturally cope with these stresses in a more comfortable, less destructive, and healthy way.

Would give this place 10 stars if I could. I honest never liked going to the dentist office. This place has changed my mind. Dr.Dave has a big heart and a wonderful team that made everything easy and quick! I would also like to mention a hygienist from there named Deana. Have never had a clean so quick and painless before her. She knows what she is doing!

Dr. Hertelendy and his staff are very knowledgeable, fun, and professional. I had a cleaning yesterday with one of his hygienists and showed concern of my gums being too low in a certain spot. He fit me in his schedule the next day for a gingivectomy. I have never had any dentistry done besides orthodontics so I was extremely nervous. The numbing process was painless. The procedure in general was quick. Dr. H was extremely detail orientated and was a perfectionist with how my gums were contoured. The results are amazing. I am very happy with how it turned out.

My wife has been going to Dr. Dave and his staff for over 15 years and they are patient and listen to your every need. If you have a low pain tolerance they work with you, if you need braces they have that to, anything you need to take care of your teeth they have, I’m 38 years old and I have been going to Dr.Dave since for a couple months now and now my family sees him as well.
