Dr. Maribel Vann specializes in the treatment of TMJ with the planned use of Advance Lightwire Functional Appliance (ALF).
Temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMJ is a common condition that affects many people. It is commonly caused by the misalignment of the jaws and is responsible for many symptoms:
  • Chronic headaches and facial pain
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Ringing in the ears and ear pain
  • Clenching and grinding of the teeth
Those who suffer from TMJ dysfunction also report that their symptoms generally worsen during periods of prolonged or unexpected stress.
The clenching and grinding teeth symptoms are particularly common and usually occur at night. If allowed to continue, the grinding and clenching will eventually erode the surfaces of the teeth and lead to much more severe dental problems in the future. Without treatment, TMJ dysfunction is one of the prime underlying factors in eroded jawbones and loose teeth.
The vast majority of people with symptoms of TMJ dysfunction are unaware that the root cause of these problems is something that a dentist can provide effective treatment for.
It is possible for Dr. Vann to realign or adjust the teeth without the need for painful or expensive surgeries by using what is known as an Advance Lightwire Functional Appliance (ALF). The ALF is a dental appliance similar to a wire retainer. It gently applies force to the upper and lower jaws to realign them. By doing so, the ALF is able to correct many types of structural distortions of the jaw. The ALF may also be used in the treatment of problems in other parts of the body such as the upper neck and shoulders and even the lower back, given the effect that misaligned jaws can have on the rest of your body.
To determine if you suffer from TMJ dysfunction and are a good fit for ALF treatment Dr. Vann will perform an analysis of your upper and lower jaws and evaluate your posture.
If you are experiencing any symptoms of TMJ dysfunction, I encourage you to contact me today to schedule an appointment.
