There is a name for what may be causing your facial pain: TMJ Disorder or TMJ

Do you hear a clicking noise when you open and close your mouth? This is a common sign of TMJ Disorder. The acronym TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint (where your upper and lower jaw meet). Misalignment of the joint can produce ongoing facial pain. Dr. Konz has advanced training and experience in diagnosing and treating TMJ Disorder.

You don’t have to live in pain from TMJ anymore

We have found that many of our new patients have suffered from the pain of TMJ for years. We want you to know that there is hope for comfort and you do not have to live in pain from TMJ. The Konz Dental Difference is quality, and compassionate care that leads to individualized dental solutions. Dr. Konz can provide you with options for pain relief uniquely suited to your diagnosis. This may include a customized night guard, dental crown, dental bridge, or tooth recontouring.

Our specialized training is essential to effectively treating TMJ

The condition can easily be misdiagnosed and under-treated because TMJ symptoms can mirror other disorders. Recognizing a gap in care, Dr. Konz and her team go above and beyond the average dental practice to understand TMJ and provide effective treatment options. Dr. Konz has extensively trained in the examination and treatment of TMJ and actively pursues continuing education related to muscles around the head and neck that are associated with TMJ.
