Houston TMJ/TMD Treatment
Temporomandibular Joint Therapy focuses on treating the joint that attaches the lower jaw to the temporal bone on each side of the head. This joint is precisely hinged to provide comfortable movement. It also slides back and forth, making it a complex area prone to problems. Symptoms of TMJ or TMD syndrome include frequent headaches, tooth aches, facial pain, neck pain, popping or clicking of the joint, ringing in the ears, recurring earaches, sensitivity to light and a misaligned upper and low jaw.
Misalignment of the teeth is usually the culprit, although trauma to the face can also lead to TMJ problems. In time, clenching and grinding of the teeth can aggravate the problem, leading to a cycle of pain that is difficult to break.
Dr. Estler has developed a three phase approach for treating TMJ in Houston, Texas. Realignment of the joint using custom orthodontic appliances will relieve pressure in the ear canal and on blood vessels and nerves.
Call our office today at 281-579-7222 if you suspect you have TMJ. A no obligation evaluation can be scheduled at your convenience.
Houston and Katy Cosmetic Dentistry
Dr. Estler offers a complete selection of Katy cosmetic dentistry solutions for the most attractive smile possible, so you can “smile like the stars.”
• Dental Whitening – This simple procedure uses a light-activated dental gel to quickly whiten your teeth up to ten shades brighter. You can relax while the gel does its work, usually in less than an hour. If you prefer, Dr. Estler can provide you with custom trays and a whitening gel to use at home. This home whitening gel is more concentrated than gels found in stores, but is safe and won’t harm even sensitive teeth.
• Porcelain Veneers – Katy, Texas dentist Dr. Estler uses Lumineers. These thin porcelain veneers are no thicker than a contact lens and are placed directly over your current teeth to improve their appearance. No shots are needed and the veneers can be put over crowns as well as natural teeth. These are the finest porcelain veneers Texas has to offer. Stained, discolored, or crooked teeth can be corrected painlessly with Lumineers,which can last over twenty years.
