TMJ & Bite Therapy

During initial and routine exams, Dr. Hudson will examine your jaw joint or TMJ. A healthy joint and healthy bite are requisite to oral health. Grinding, clenching, trauma, missing or shifted teeth, as well as bite discrepancies can contribute to TMJ problems. Clicking, popping, grating sounds or discomfort around the ears or jaw joints may also indicate TMJ problems. Dr. Hudson is trained in evaluating and treating these areas. There are many ways to help these problems and in many cases help to prevent future problems.
