Many patients experience facial pain, headaches and other symptoms of a temporomandibular disorder (TMD) and don’t realize that their dentist may have the answer!
These symptoms are frequently the result of stress within the jaw due to teeth grinding or an imbalance in the bite- both of which can be diagnosed and treated by Dr. Van Gurp, a Charlotte cosmetic and restorative dentist.
Left untreated, temporomandibular disorders, commonly known as TMJ, can often lead to complex dental problems and even tooth loss.
Dr. Van Gurp can evaluate your bite and determine if and/or where there is an imbalance before recommending a plan of treatment to restore oral health- and resolve your recurring pain! Dr. Van Gurp offers a variety of procedures and treatments as part of TMJ therapy.
