Misaligned jaw joints (TMJ) can cause many painful and damaging problems, such as:
- Grinding and clenching, called bruxism, which harms teeth
- Migraines or headaches
- Pain in the head, face, neck, jaw, etc.
- Clicking or popping in the jaw
- An inability to fully open and close the mouth
- Tingling in extremities
This condition, known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMJ dysfunction, is correctible. Dr. Thor Anderson has studied non-surgical TMJ therapy and understands the science of jaw repositioning (equilibration) to alleviate stress on associated nerves and muscles. He will confirm the source of your condition, then prescribe a custom-fit oral appliance to correct the jaw’s position and/or alleviate bruxism. A properly aligned bite will ensure that your new restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and/or prosthetic dentistry will last!

We have helped many patients throughout the greater Madison, Janesville, Edgerton, Evansville, McFarland, Oregon, and South Central Wisconsin area find relief through non-surgical TMJ therapy.Back
