Symptoms of TMJ include:
– Trouble/soreness in opening and closing the mouth
– Clicking or popping of the jaw
– Pain in the jaw muscles
– Soreness in the area, sometimes extending to the face
Dental treatments for the condition can include replacing missing teeth, moving teeth, adjusting the bite and filling gaps between teeth. There is no one solution that is right for all cases. Occasionally a plastic mouthpiece is used to prevent clenching or grinding that is contributing to the problem. If untreated and in severe cases, surgery may be required to repair a badly damaged joint.

My teeth were cleaned gently and efficiently by Noelle. We discovered that my son had been in her dental hygiene program. Noelle has a very easy manner and offered some good information about keeping my teeth and gums healthy..

Dr. Aras and staff are awesome. I arrived at 8 am, they were ready for me right away. He told me they were not going to use a drill, but instead a Laser that removes any soft material and preps the surface for the patch. No numbing needed. I had always had a good experience here so I trusted them.
love this dental practice and have had a lot of experience with them. Every attention to detail meets all my expectations. I know if something were to go up side down they take care of it. They are friendly and always on top of the details. I ask many questions and they are very patient. Also for any patient who has any fears about seeing a dentist this practice is the place to go, they are so gentle and caring and honestly just about pain free. They care!!!

Yesterday’s visit was successful, particularly because of Penny’s help to me of a personal nature. Richard Willoughby was his usual efficient, cheery self. All of Center Point’s staff was most solicitous despite the many life-changing and/or life-affirming events that have been occurring. Center Point continues my Dental group of choice. I would like to add my congratulations to Dr.McCleave: Happy Birthday and may you enjoy many more productive, healthy years as you
