TMJ Treatment

San Ramon, CA woman with jaw painThe Temporomandibular Joint hinges the lower jaw to the skull. This joint along with several muscles allow you to open and close your mouth. They work in harmony when you chew, speak or swallow.

When the jaw joints and the muscles controlling them do not work together correctly, you may experience TMJ disorder.

TMJ disorder symptoms are sometimes caused by the misalignment of your bite (how your upper and lower teeth fit together). Dr. Dhaliwal is certified in treating TMJ issues and uses specialized computer equipment to study the pattern of your jaw movements. He can then create a San Ramon dental solution using orthodontics or porcelain veneers that brings your bite into its natural position and alleviates these symptoms for the long term.
