Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction
Dr. Doug Weber treats patients with craniomandibular disorders, chronic pain, and obstructive sleep disorders. Patients are referred by all medical specialists, as well as by general dentists. Careful patient diagnosis occurs within a model that includes a comprehensive history, joint vibration analysis, indicated quality imaging, and a comprehensive examination. Non-surgical, diagnostically driven treatment is the key to the patient care employed at Plaza Dental. Based on the patient's symptoms, we incorporate both permissive and demand appliance therapy. The key role of parafunction is emphasized. Supportive therapy, including physical therapy modalities, iontophoresis, and injection therapy are prescribed as necessary. Conservative therapy with prudent use of Phase II therapy when required is emphasized.
