Here’s a look at the diagnostic process.

How We Diagnose TMD, Head/Facial Pain

Head and facial pain can show up in any number of ways. Many people don’t even realize their head and facial pain stems from jaw problems, or even sleep apnea, but they’re often connected. Whether you are experiencing face or throat pain, jaw and eye pain, headaches, or migraines, we can get to the bottom of it and provide a solution.

Approximately 95 percent of effective treatment depends on a proper diagnosis to reveal the origin of your problem. This diagnosis will alert us as to the primary problem and where it stems from. Often times, just knowing the WHY of their pain puts patients like you at ease and confident that a solution has been pinpointed.

Our diagnostic workup is comprehensive. We devote a great deal of time to reviewing your medical history in detail and completing a head and neck evaluation with the latest technology, such as 3D scans of the head. Proper diagnosis and emphasis on origin rather than solely on symptoms is important to ensuring successful, long-term treatment results. After we have diagnosed you, we will recommend a non-surgical treatment plan for rehabilitation according to your unique needs.

This may be something as simple as a customized, 3D printed oral appliance that adjusts the positioning of the jaw.
