Edna was referred to Orthodontic Alliances by her general dentist because of TMJ trouble. This was causing her headaches, causing her jaw to lock up, and causing other pain.
With help from Dr. Schmidt and our team, she is making progress with our TMJ treatment. With orthodontic care, her teeth are better aligned, which also reduces teeth grinding. This is often a factor in TMJ disorders.
