X-rays are a very important tool in our dental office as they allow our team to see below the surface of the smile where many issues show their earliest symptoms. For patients worried about radiation exposure, digital X-rays quickly put those concerns to rest. In addition to creating better images in less time compared to traditional film, the process also emits 90% LESS radiation, giving many patients and parents peace of mind.
If you wiggle your jaw from side to side, those little joints you feel right below your ears are your TMJ or temporomandibular joint. This is what enables your jaw to move freely in all directions. Like other joints in the body, it can sometimes develop dysfunction and pain due to stress, injury, or arthritis, leading to a TMJ disorder, or TMD. Common symptoms include a stiff and painful jaw, frequent headaches, and even soreness in the ears, neck, and shoulders.
At Park City Dentistry, Dr. Calderwood is able to diagnose these kinds of issues as well as provide a number of effective and conservative treatments. He can rebalance the bite to take strain off the joint, create therapeutic mouthpieces, and even offer targeted BOTOX injections to calm spasming muscles and deliver immediate relief.
