Other Dental Services Offered in Richmond

At Richmond Fine Dentistry we take special interest in the following areas and have undertaken additional study to further our knowledge and understanding of the latest techniques for treatment.

TMJ – Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ), or jaw joint, is located just beneath the lobes of the ears. Dysfunction in the TMJ could be causing headaches, tension, sore jaw, lock jaw or other body ailments. It is a complex disorder with many potential causes, so you need a thorough assessment to understand where the problem might lie. It can be treated in house or we will refer you to a maxillofacial surgeon if required.
