AboutArizona TMJ

At Arizona TMJ, Dr. Chase uses neuromuscular dentistry to provide the specific treatment patients need for permanent TMJ & TMD treatment. There is no reason that patients need to continue living with the chronic pain of TMJ & TMD that affects the jaw, face, head, neck, and more. Instead of having to rely on pain medication that only provides temporary relief, our team can help provide professional TMJ and chronic jaw pain treatment.

Along with relieving symptoms, Dr. Chase uses EMG and TENS technology to treat the root cause of the symptoms. This way, patients can achieve lasting relief from symptoms and the chronic pain to live life to the fullest. If left untreated, TMJ & TMD can increase the difficulty when moving the jaw and cause frequent migraines throughout the day. By identifying the source, patients can begin the path toward healing through customized treatment.

If you need treatment for TMJ & TMD or related symptoms, call us at 602-603-8945 to schedule an appointment at our Glendale practice today.
