The exact cause of a TMJ disorder is often hard to figure out. There are, however, several risk factors that increase your chances of developing TMJ.
How Do You Diagnose TMJ Disorders?
After meeting with you to discuss your symptoms, our specialists will perform a thorough examination. We will review your medical history, perform a physical examination, and take digital images (i.e radiographic images, X-Rays or prescribe a MRI).
Choosing the right treatment option for your TMJ disorder depends largely on the severity of your disorder. Both surgical and non-surgical treatment options are available.
The PRECiDENT Difference
I cannot express enough gratitude for Dr. Bolding’s knowledge, kindness and ability to permanently repair several debilitating health issues I was having. I had extreme jaw joint displacement (TMJ) to the point I was often unable to eat. I am less than six months post-surgery and the results are astonishing. Every improvement we discussed has happened and other improvements we had not discussed. Dr. Bolding gave me my life back and his support staff was incredible in assisting him to do this. I am forever grateful and highly recommend.
