TMJ Solutions with Dr. Chris Hill

If you’re experiencing discomfort or dysfunction in your jaw joint and muscles, you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). At Smile On Dental Studio in St. Louis, MO, Dr. Chris Hill is equipped with cutting-edge technology to diagnose and treat TMJ, ensuring precise and effective relief.

Advanced Diagnostic Technology for TMJ

Understanding the root cause of your TMJ disorder is crucial for effective treatment. Dr. Chris Hill uses a comprehensive array of advanced diagnostic tools at Smile On Dental Studio:

CBCT Scan

Provides a 3D X-ray of your head and neck, including jaw joints, teeth, and spine, giving a complete picture necessary for accurate diagnosis.

Electromyography (EMG)

Measures muscle activity around the head and neck to identify overstimulated or understimulated muscles, aiding in precise treatment planning.

Sonography/Joint Vibration Analysis

Allows us to listen to the sounds your jaw joints make, helping to identify abnormalities in the joint disc.

K7 Jaw Tracking

Tracks the movement path of your jaw, offering insights into optimal muscle positioning for your jaw to rest.

TENS Unit

Uses electrical pulses to relax jaw muscles, which helps in correcting alignment issues.

T-Scan Digital Bite Analyzer

Assesses how your teeth make contact and the force exerted by each tooth, providing data essential for balancing and adjusting your bite effectively.

From Diagnosis to Treatment in St. Louis

Following a comprehensive diagnosis using our state-of-the-art technology, Dr. Chris Hill will recommend a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Treatment options may include:

Oral Appliances/Orthotics

Often the first line of treatment, these devices help realign the jaw and alleviate stress on the joint.

Orthodontics

Some patients may benefit from orthodontics to correct alignment issues contributing to TMJ.

Bite Reconstruction

In cases where severe bite issues are present, bite reconstruction may be necessary to restore proper function and relieve symptoms.
