Our TMJ/Bruxism Therapy Services

Do any of these symptoms sound familiar?

If so, there’s a good chance you’re suffering from TMJ disorder. The Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) may be small, but it performs a crucial job.   Dysfunction in the TMJ can result in severe pain that lasts for years.

Dr. Whitney Hustad has 10 years of special training in TMJ disorder, allowing her to provide successful treatment options.   Our team can also assist patients who suffer from bruxism (also known as teeth grinding), which is often connected with the presence of TMJ disorder.

Splint Therapy

Splint therapy is typically the treatment of choice for TMJ disorder.   It involves custom fabrication of a hard acrylic mouthguard that is customized for your TMJ and the way you bite.

Botox Therapy

Botox therapy is another treatment used in certain cases of TMJ disorder.   There are 4 main areas targeted to relax the facial muscles that contribute to facial pain.
