  • Designed to Perfection

    My first grandchild was born today.  He came equipped with ten perfect fingers and toes, perfect little arms and legs, and a pair of eyes that bore into the camera that took his first portrait.  His tiny fingernails, lips, and nose are also flawless—all testaments to the perfection of the...

  • Can effects from TMJ ever be reversed?

    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
