Temporomandibular Disorder

Millions of people throughout the world suffer from facial or jaw pain as a result of disharmony in their bite.  Diagnosis is the key to successful treatment outcomes.  Dr. Kaspers has been diagnosing temporomandibular disorders in patients for the last thirty years with great success.  In 2007, Dr. Kaspers acquired a dental CBCT scan machine which takes radiographs of the patient’s jaw joint in three dimensions.  This new technology helped Dr. Kaspers discover a new finding which has aided him in diagnosing the cause of a patient’s TMD symptoms.

By acquiring an accurate diagnosis of your facial or jaw pain, Dr. Kaspers can provide you with the proper treatment plan to relieve your symptoms.  Most TMD symptoms are due to structural disorders within your bite.  By utilizing a dental CBCT scan of your head, Dr. Kaspers can pinpoint exactly where the problem is and outline a plan to correct it.

Diagnosis for treatment

Every orthodontic patient at Kaspers Orthodontics receives the same thorough diagnosis of their case no matter if they have TMD symptoms or not.  Dr. Kaspers understands that having a healthy temporomandibular joint in harmony with how your teeth function is critical to avoiding future breakdown with your teeth, gums, and jaw joints.  Dr. Kaspers has lectured dentists and orthodontists from around the world in an attempt to educate the practitioner so that future orthodontic care will prevent TMD.
