Joint Disorder

Many patients who experience pain in their jaw, headaches, or even the inability to close their jaw are suffering from TMJD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) and will benefit from a bruxism appliance.  I custom fit appliance will be most effective in treating joint disorder, we do not recommend purchasing an over-the-counter/bought-off-amazon appliance. Dr. Duke works with an amazing local lab to make quality appliances that have lasted some patients for 15+ years.

Over time your joints and bite will change, regular dental appointments will help maintain joint health and tooth wear.
