What is causing my pain?

What causes headaches, migraines, and other TMJ-like symptoms to occur?

These painful symptoms occur because of the relationship between the jaw, the muscles, and how the teeth fit together. When the teeth are maligned, it sets a domino effect into motion. This misalignment, or malocclusion, makes our jaw joints fit awkwardly against the base of the skull. This goes on to affect our muscles as well. They become stressed, and pain, like headaches, is the result.

What can be done for me?

What can be done for me?

Solutions to these painful symptoms differ based on the individual symptoms being experienced. Most commonly, we use advanced mandibular scanning in order to see how to achieve the best jaw position and lower muscle stress levels. These scientifically proven treatment methods are noninvasive with highly successful and measurable outcomes.

I contacted this dental office after recently moving to the area. The staff is very friendly and treats me like I have been coming for years. The treatment for my toothache was clearly explained to me and they offered several options, one of which was seeking a specialists opinion before proceeding. I did have the procedure done at this office because I felt that my well being was their top priority. Highly recommend. A++++

I am beyond happy with my results... I began by getting Invisalign to straighten my teeth a few years ago. I loved the results but recently decided I wanted to do something about the stains on my teeth that I’ve had since I was a kid. I had a consultation and it was decided I would try veneers. I LOVE them... I would definitely recommend Impressions Dental to anyone needing any type of dental work! Very professional staff and a clean, friendly environment.
