We treat a lot of bruxism patients, TMJ patients, myofascial pain patients, sleep obstructive patients. With TMJ and bruxism, there are a lot of patients that just require simple appliance therapy, then there are some patients that require neuromuscular treatments as well as full TMJ treatments. I have a background in TMJ where I did a residency, ended up teaching it as well, and can provide my patients some of the better techniques and more up to date techniques in regard to TMJ in our office.
