Amazingly, this process often takes as little as 20 minutes. We recognize that every person is unique and we take the time to understand the specific situation and circumstances of each and every one of our patients. People suffering from TMJ issues experience many different symptoms (all of which are undesirable). If you are suffering with any of the symptoms below, we may be the perfect solution.

Common TMD symptoms:

Because of the complexity of the TMJ (temporomandibular joint), past medical practitioners had great difficulty and in analyzing and diagnosing TMJ issues resulting in a migraine headache, neck pain, jaw pain etc. Medications or treatments were proscribed that didn’t solve the issue, but merely addressed the symptoms. Through modern dentistry and technological advancements in our field, these life-inhibiting issues can be precisely identified and treated. People no longer need to suffer jaw pain, neck pain, or migraines headaches unnecessarily. Dr. Shane Sykes and his staff have invested the time, energy and resources to effectively understand and address these TMJ issues and thereby relieve our patients of the pain they feel everyday.
