Dentistry in North Dallas

TMJ Therapy

Total mouth harmony means that the entire oral system - nerves, muscles, bones, and teeth - work together to provide comfortable oral function. When the jaw joints, called TMJ for temporomandibular joints, are misaligned, nerves and muscles can become fatigued. They may react at night, which causes grinding teeth, a condition known as bruxism.

TMJ dysfunction also results in headaches, earaches, jaw/face/neck/shoulder pain, popping jaw joints, and/or tingling hands and feet. By correcting your bite with a simple oral appliance or building up worn teeth with white restorations, Dr. Chalk may alleviate your TMJ dysfunction symptoms and prevent future tooth wear.

Dr. Chalk has served Dallas area patients since 1974. With a commitment to lifelong education, innovative technology, and extreme patient comfort, Dr. Chalk transforms smiles and lives. Call to schedule your TMJ consultation today if you suffer from headaches or pain associated with bite misalignment. Our office serves patients from North Dallas, Park Cities, Richardson, Plano, and surrounding areas.
