TMJ disorders are a group of complex problems of the jaw joint. If not properly treated, TMJ disorders can negatively affect your overall health and quality of life. Below are some common questions about TMJ treatments:

What is TMJ Disorder?

TMJ is an abbreviation for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder; a collection of symptoms that result from misalignment or malocclusion of the temporomandibular joint.
What are the symptoms of TMJ Disorder?

The most common symptoms of TMJ include headache, ear pain, facial pain, popping sound in the jaw, ringing in the ears, dizziness and neck and shoulder pain.
What causes TMJ Disorder?

TMJ Disorder can be caused by malocclusion (bad bite), bruxism (grinding teeth), trauma to the jaw or mouth, stress, habitual clenching, chewing gum, fingernail biting and more.
How is TMJ Disorder diagnosed?

A qualified dentist can diagnose TMJ by reviewing your medical history and performing a physical examination of your teeth, head and neck.
How can dentistry improve TMJ Disorder?

Dentistry can help to alleviate the symptoms of TMJ by correcting the bite imbalance that is causing the muscles and tendons of the jaw to overexert. Many times, TMJ can be improved with bite adjustment, occlusal appliances or orthodics. A trained dentist in Neuromuscular Dentistry would be able to use a myotronics machine to find the most comfortable position for your joint and to fabricate orthotics to maintain that position.
What is Neuromuscular Dentistry?

Neuromuscular Dentistry works with the jaw joints and their related soft tissue to create optimal alignment of your bite thereby alleviating the symptoms of TMJ.

For more information regarding TMJ, schedule a consultation with Dr. Joyce Guojun Ma of Prime Dental Care. Dr. Ma has extensive training and experience treating TMJ.

Julia Y.

Very nice, cozy office. Dr. Oh was very professional, smart, and trustworthy. My hygienist Dahee was also professional, polite, and informative. I felt comfortable and confident that I was in good hands. My teeth also felt so clean after! After not having been to the dentist in >3 yrs, I was worried about the state of my teeth, but they did not make me feel embarrassed at all. Receptionists are super polite as well. Highly recommend this high-quality care!

By far the best Dental practice I have ever visited. Dr. Ma and her team are very professional and friendly. They always clearly explain what they are doing so I feel comfortable when I am there. You can also watch Netflix while you are having your procedure performed. A root canal is never fun, but not so bad when watching Stranger Things or Sherlock. I would highly recommend the entire team at Prime Dental Care.

There are good dentist and there are great dentist...Dr.Ma is one of those great doctors that you hope you find and once you do, you know you'll never leave them. I've never been to a dentist that does it all....and does it so well. Everyone in the office is caring and professional...the hygienist are amazing and so careful not to cause any pain or discomfort.... for those of us who hate going to the dentist there are shows you can watch while they work on your teeth...a welcome distraction to the not so brave ( like me)! I really can't say enough good things about this amazing dentist and office...I am so lucky to have found them. Best.Dentist.Ever.

Very professional and friendly environment with staff that are knowledgeable, personable and easy to discuss dental care with. There is a lot of comfort in the office with massage chairs and Netflix to watch while you're having your teeth cleaned. Always a great and easy experience!

I am from Europe, used to be terrified of the dentist. I still dont like going, but I am not terrified anymore. This staff is fantastic and goes out of their way to make me comfortable and always do everything to set my mind at ease

Dr. Ma is my favorite dentist, and our whole family like her and her state of the art facility very much. She provides exceptional service and high quality care in a pleasing, relaxing environment. She is very thorough, takes the time needed to provide the best dental care, and it shows that she cares about her patients. She is a very experienced dentist and she educates us on all available treatment options and teach us the benefits of good oral hygiene to prevent future problems. She is also very easy to make appointment and flexible on the schedule. I highly recommend her to all my friends in need.
