Anita Myers, DDS, has been inspired to become a dentist ever since her experiences with a rare dental condition during her teenage years and how well she was treated by dentists then.

The practice specializes in optimizing dental health by addressing comfort, function and esthetics. A Scholar of the Pankey Dental Institute, Dr. Myers also facilitates a 4 day comprehensive dental program there, where she teaches others. She also runs study clubs and participates in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry's Give Back a Smile Program, providing dental care for those whose smiles were affected by abuse and neglect.

Anita Myers's Expert Contributions

It depends. Each jaw joint has a disc that provides a cushion between the upper and lower bones. Unfortunately that disc can slip out of place and the bones compress adjacent tissue that results in pain. One of two things can happen: either the disc regains its proper position or eventually the adjacent tissue scars over (which is why the pain stops) and acts as a substitute disc. The problem is that the jaw is no longer in its optimal position and muscle fatigue from holding it in a compensating position can cause intermittent discomfort. You may never lose the crackling noises, but you can relieve the muscle tension with a well-adjusted occlusal bite splint. This orthodontic positioning device allows the joint to assume its best adapted position. Once the jaw joint has recovered, the teeth should be analyzed to determine if smooth, balanced movements can be provided in the absence of the bite splint. READ MORE
