Headaches, jaw pain, difficulty chewing, teeth grinding: these are just a few of the common signs and symptoms of a TMJ disorder. Tahoe area dentist Dr. Don Reid is nationally recognized for his expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of bite problems, often called “TMJ”, which is an acronym for the temporomandibular joint (the jaw joint).
Truckee, CA dentist Dr. Don Reid has pioneered treatment techniques that can help restore your dental health and alleviate your painful symptoms, using advanced technology to evaluate and realign your bite. The goal of treatment is to identify the underlying cause of your bite disorder, not just address symptoms. This is an important difference in our comprehensive approach, and is the key to helping you enjoy a lasting comfortable bite.
TMJ and related disorders are commonly misdiagnosed (and under diagnosed), leading to complex dental problems that recur because the underlying occlusal disease is not treated. Dr. Reid takes a comprehensive approach to all of your dental care and evaluates the function of your bite during routine exams or before any dental treatment. This ensures that any dentistry you receive at Tahoe Dental Artistry will support both a functional bite and lasting dental health.
