"I love this dentist. They are so good and gentle. My whole family goes here and my girls (who are 7 and 5) love it here. They know our names, there's never a long wait, and they are gentle with our treatments. Dr. Marin is a very good dentist. He explains everything thoroughly and my girls trust him while he does their treatment. I would recommend this dentist too anyone who is looking for one."

 TMJ and TMD Disorders

TMJ (Temporo-Mandibular Joint) or TMD (Temporo-Mandibular Dysfunction) refers to a number of problems that involve the joints and the muscles involved in chewing.

Your jaw joints can become misaligned and just like other joints in your body, can suffer from overloading and degenerative changes. Problems of the joints can range from limited range of motion to arthritis. It is generally believed that problems of the TMJs originate from trauma, misaligned bite and excessive overload from clenching or grinding.

Symptoms of TMJ/TMD vary and may include noises in the joints when opening and closing, ear ringing and pain, headaches and migraines, sore-tired jaw and neck muscles. Many of these symptoms are often overlooked by other doctors and people may suffer or undergo treatment with prescription medication for multiple years without realizing that there is a structural problem that can be resolved.

Dr. Marin is a member of the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain and has received extensive training in detecting and treating problems of the TMJs.
