“Head and neck trauma, sleep apnea, orthodontic treatment, joint clicking and popping, teeth clenching and grinding as well as physical, emotional, or chemical stressors can exacerbate an existing, yet subclinical TMJ disorder.”

Personalized Care with a Holistic Approach
During consultations, Dr. Allman will review your medical history. We look at patients not as a collection of symptoms, but rather as stories that need to be appreciated and taken into full consideration. After an in-depth discussion and assessment, we utilize state-of-the-art technology to properly diagnose the source of your discomfort.
TMJ disorders are typically characterized by uneven bites and severe headaches. We gain a full understanding of your dental alignment and jawbone function. Dr. Allman tracks your jaw’s range of motion and function through digital means, captures images with an iCat scanner, and uses an Omnicam for impressions. From there, we can devise a treatment plan that will address your discomfort and reverse the symptoms of this disruptive disorder.
How We Treat TMD
Dr. Allman and his team offer a number of effective solutions designed to restore your comfort. We prioritize your personal experience during procedures and work hard to ensure success. Our TMJ solutions include:
- Functional Orthodontics
- Oral Appliance Therapy
- Massage Therapy
Our lab technicians produce patient-specific oral appliances that can be customized to meet particular needs, whether you prefer treatment during the day or at night. These custom guards go a long way toward renewing comfort and preserving your health. Our office features a relaxation area complete with fully reclining seats and a tranquility garden that patients can enjoy before consultations and procedures.
Massage therapy is often recommended for patients experiencing TMD. Our licensed medical massage therapist is able to help TMD patients and those experiencing sleep apnea. For certain cases, we can also treat TMD with BOTOX treatments, which feature the added benefit of wrinkle reduction. Rest assured, our treatment plans are outlined with your comfort and satisfaction in mind.
