TMJ Disorder

As your Tacoma family dentists, we're committed to providing comprehensive care to ensure optimal overall wellness. This includes taking a comprehensive approach to your dental care that looks beyond the teeth, such as TMJ treatment.

Are you suffering from the following symptoms?

  • Chronic headaches or migraines
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Tingling fingers
  • Popping in the jaw when chewing
  • Worn teeth
  • Facial, neck or upper back pain

All of these symptoms are signs you could be experiencing an unbalanced jaw joint, also known as the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This means your TMJ and bite are not in harmony with each other. Fortunately, there are non-invasive solutions to help relieve your pain.

How can you get out of pain?

There are multiple solutions you can pursue to help relieve your pain. With our Tacoma dentists, we can use:

  • Nightguards: When you sleep, you may be grinding your teeth, which is a standard indicator of TMJ disorder. Custom-fitted nightguards can protect your teeth from the nightly grind and relieve your pain.
  • Dermal Fillers: On top of getting a cosmetic benefit, Dermal Fillers can help relieve TMJ pain and chronic headaches.

Stop living life in pain and get your life back! Contact our dental office for a comprehensive consultation.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Macks and his staff are amazing. We stumbled across this office when my husband was having horrible tooth pain and needed emergency care. We called around to numerous dentists and left several messages (it was after hours about 9 pm). Dr. Macks was the only one to ever call us back, he wrote a prescription to help him through the night then scheduled him first thing in morning. They very good care of my husband at this appointment and we knew we'd be life long patients! This was about 5 years ago and we have been going ever since. We receive superior care every time we go. They are so friendly and kind . Several members of our family have started seeing Dr. Macks as well. "

"I have been going to this Dental office for over 10 years now and I would never go anywhere else. The entire office staff is friendly and professional and your personal dental hygienist will greet you in the waiting room with a smile every appointment. I use to loathe going to the dentist but this staff makes a pleasant experience every visit. I have referred my friends and family to Dr Macks and will definitely continue to do so."

"If you are looking for a dentist, call Dr. Macks now. He is by far the most capable and humane dentist I have ever visited. He did more for me in one appointment than other dentists have done for me over my whole life. He is helping me get my teeth where they need to be faster and better than I knew was even possible. And he can do almost everything in his beautiful, comfortable office. His staff are wonderful too. He is getting very busy so appointments are precious. Going to Dr. Macks was one of the best decisions I"ve made with my dental care, now all of my family goes to him. This recommendation is meant for Dr. Macks and not for the other dentists that practice in his office."
