With our effective TMJ solutions, you will be able to get past the pain and discomfort you are experiencing from your TMJ, the joints that connect your jaw to your skull.

Our orthodontic practice has been a regional care center for TMJ disorders for more than 20 years. Dr. Schmidt has operated a TMJ-centered practice since the early 1980s. He has treated thousands of patients who have suffered from this disorder, and he and Dr. Evan will be able to give you the same level of relief.

Although the dental community has not yet found exactly what causes this condition, we do know some things that can contribute to TMD and have developed some very effective treatments.

  • Help alleviate the pain you feel and in many cases correct whatever issue you were experiencing
