Temporomandibular disorder or TMD refers to problems with the temporomandibular joint or TMJ. Referred to as both TMD or TMJ, this disorder can be painful and have a variety of symptoms. If you have been experiencing symptoms such as jaw pain, constant headaches, or a popping sound when you chew, you may have TMJ/TMD. With our general dental care services at Ora Dentistry, we have effective TMD treatments that can stop the pain and protect your teeth from damage.

Get an Accurate Diagnosis

The symptoms of TMD can often be misdiagnosed. Since they range from direct jaw or tooth pain to shoulder, neck and temple tingling or pain, it is not always clear what is causing the symptoms. To get an accurate diagnosis, you need an expert to view your temporomandibular joint to determine whether there is an issue. At Ora Dentistry, we can take the necessary x-rays to view the TMJ. Dr. Dalla can accurately diagnose TMD/TMJ and recommend treatment.

Jaw Pain Relief

One of the best treatments for TMD is using an oral appliance to adjust the jaw. Repositioning the jaw into the correct alignment can help relieve pain and have long-term benefits. Once the joint is in the correct position, your bite is realigned. This protects your teeth from uneven wear that often happens with TMD. It also helps your jaw muscles and joint heal, putting less stress on the TMJ. This appliance can be customized for your mouth at our office. This is usually worn at night, which also protects your teeth from grinding, a symptom that often accompanies TMD.

Stop the pain of TMD/TMJ and protect your teeth from damage. Come see us at Ora Dentistry if you believe you may have TMD. We accept most insurance plans and also have financing options. Contact our dental practice today to schedule your appointment for TMJ relief.

Very confused by the website and advertising as an after hour/emergency dental service. I broke a tooth this evening and was looking for emergency dental services for the earliest appointment. I called and a receptionist/operator picked up on a Friday evening close to 8 p.m. and said that the emergency dental service was only for existing patients. That isn't on the website and in fact, the top line on the website states if you need emergency dental care , call. Don't mind that they aren't able to see me, but the operator needs a better script when explaining their services and should also provide better service or don't be an after hour receptionist. She also never asked me if I WAS an existing patient. Would love to give no stars, but I can't post unless I pick one. UPDATE: So wasn't expecting the owner of the practice to call me. I spoke with Dr. Dalla and he explained in detail their policies and calmed my anxiety regarding my broken tooth.. I appreciate that he is a business owner that pays attention to what is being said about his practice and would take the time to follow up. I may have found a new dentist.

I’ve been searching for a dental office for my special needs daughter for a long time. I called many offices explaining her situation that she had Autism and anxiety and I was told they didn’t see special needs kids. I came across Ora Dentistry through my google search and gave them a call explained to them my situation and they told me they’d be happy to see her. We scheduled an appointment. On the day of the appointment I called again and explained her situation and told them she would like her sister and mom to be there for support due to her anxiety and they were totally accommodating and that put me at ease. We got to our appointment and were greeted by Bridgette she was AMAZING with my daughter she made her feel SUPER comfortable through out the entire process! I’ve never seen my daughter so calm and relaxed. When the doctor came in to do his exam on her he too was beyond nice and again made my daughter feel at ease. I really have to thank Ora dentistry for their excellent service! If you have a special needs child this is the place to go! Highly recommend it!

Two years ago I visited this office to assess the viability of getting an implant for a lost tooth. On that first visit Dr. Dalla had x-rays taken, made the assessment, provided me with options, including performing an implant on a lost back molar. I consented, and right then and there, he performed the actual implant and gave me a return appointment to insure all was healing well. Then, 3 months later, he fitted me with the abutment and took impressions for the crown. Two weeks after that the crown was installed. Not only was the work done in record time, but it has been the best fitting crown I've ever had, and I've had 18 crowns in my lifetime of 68 years. This was my second implant. My first implant was by another dental office and does not come close to compare with Dr. Dalla's work. His implant and crown feel like healthy, natural teeth, and in fact, I chew most of my food using that new "molar." I wish I would have gone to him long ago. By far the best around. He is a perfectionist, and is demanding of himself. Just what you should want in someone performing your dental work. Highest recommendations!
