Your First Visit
Once you have a consultation with a dentist, we will discuss your medical history and try to detect signs of all TMJ symptoms that you’re experiencing. In some cases, diagnostic testing to listen to jaw movement to detect popping or clicking sounds, x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs are often used to diagnose TMD.
