Do you suffer from facial pain, or jaws that seem to “lock” when you’re chewing? Do they make odd noises, like popping or cracking sounds? These are just a few of the symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder, a misalignment in the hinge joint that connects your jaw to the rest of your skull.
Dr. Norton has pursued advanced training at specialized centers, such as the Dawson Academy and the Pankey Institute, to stay at the forefront of techniques for helping his patients with TMJ. Dr. Norton uses Tanner splints to gently stabilize your jaw to correct your bite and relieve your symptoms.
If you have TMJ problems, please call us for an appointment and evaluation with Dr. Norton. Treatment for TMJ is gentle and gradual, making small adjustments, which over time will realign your jaw and relieve your pain and discomfort.
