Common “Night Guards” do not treat the cause of TMJ pain, only the symptoms. Meanwhile, research show that 40% of the time such appliances make symptoms 50% worse!

Dr Munkel will take an in-depth look into what is causing your TMJ pain, likely beginning with a Joint Vibration Analysis (JVA). This fast, non-invasive measurement of TMJ function, aids in diagnosis. Different disorders can produce specific vibration patterns or “signatures”, allowing Dr. Munkel to identify your personal needs while striving for Maximum Improvement.
