Not all TMJ problems are connected to a bad bite. But most of them do have a significant connection to the problem. Dr. Yamamoto does a complete bite analysis on every TMJ patient. His expertise with the bite allows him to inform the patient if the TMJ problem is not connected with the bite. There are some TMJ patients that require a multi-disciplinary approach. This means that more than one Doctor needs to be involved with the diagnosis and treatment planning.
If you or a family member are concerned that you might have either TMJ or a Malocclussion and are looking for a dentist in Huntington Beach, CA please feel free to call us at 714-847-9900 to schedule an appointment today.
