If you are influenced by temporomandibular joint disorder or TMD, you know how the pain and discomfort can lower your quality of life. Vaca & Kirby Dental TMD treatment has helped countless patients manage their condition.
The temporomandibular or jaw joint connects the lower jaw bone to the skull. TMD is often linked to jaw and facial pain, headaches, earaches, neck pain, and chewing difficulty. TMD is also associated with jaw clicking, locking, or clenching, and can cause tooth damage and bone loss.
Many TMJ patients first came to Vaca & Kirby Dental after trying to relieve their frequent headaches. Since, 1999, we have observed that many dental patients don’t realize they have TMJ disorder because it can be difficult to pinpoint perfectly what is causing the pain. A TMJ specialist can properly diagnose your specific issues and recommend an effective treatment program.
Because a comprehensive treatment plan is most successful, we carefully coordinate with a network of TMD specialists including ENT doctors, neurologists, and physical therapists. If you are suffering from jaw pain, we recommend a consultation with Dr. Kirby at Vaca & Kirby Dental in Longview.
At Vaca & Kirby Dental, we take jaw pain seriously.
