A temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMJ or TMD, can make your life miserable. Fortunately, our dentist, Dr. Richard Argant, and our team offer TMJ treatment. But in order to make sure that your treatment is effective, your problem needs to be properly evaluated and diagnosed. Most TMJ exams look at the problem in the office without really taking into consideration the fact that your jaws move quite frequently throughout the day whether speaking or eating, and jaw movement can even happen subconsciously. What a dentist sees in an exam at the office really does not reflect all of the elements and conditions that can contribute to the stress on the cartilage of your jaw, contributing to TMD or TMJ.
At Dentistry Divine Smile, Dr. Argant uses the BioPak JVA TMJ system in Deming, New Mexico, to truly understand your TMJ issues and create a treatment plan designed expressly for you and your smile. This cutting-edge technology analyzes the vibrations of your temporomandibular joint to detect where and how the problems with your jaw are occurring, and it helps Dr. Argant develop your treatment. The process is easy and non-invasive as it only involves you wearing a headset and moving your jaw to provide the information Dr. Argant needs. Stop living with the pain of TMJ and call 575-544-8381 today to plan your appointment.
