With extensive training in temporomandibular disorders (TMD), Dr. Petry and Dr. Walton can reduce your pain and discomfort. TMD are disorders that relate to the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) which acts as the hinge for your lower jaw. Common symptoms include unexplained pain in the face, ears and jaw; a stiffness of facial muscles; and a restricted ability to open or move the jaw.
Dr. Petry and Dr. Walton will evaluate your condition and recommend options to treat the pain. Basic treatments can include hot/cold packs, eating soft foods, dental treatment, medication, and night guards. Other treatments could include laser therapy, injections or surgery.Request an Appointment
