A temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMJ, can limit your ability to speak or chew and can also be very painful. Dr. Peter Kim, Dr. Shah Khodai and Dr. Navid Torabian want to help you find relief from TMJ. The first step is to locate and evaluate the severity of your problem, and at Sierra Oaks Dental, we use the Doppler method to help our dentists with your TMJ diagnosis in Sacramento, California. This technique uses ultrasound to literally listen to your jaw joints to detect any abnormal sounds associated with the problem. Because we employ the use of acoustics, we can better understand your problem and create a treatment plan in a safe and non-invasive way. If you have been suffering from pain in your jaws and are ready for some relief, call (916) 846-9828 today.
