It was a tough way to start the day, and it seemed to drain away my energy all day long.
During a routine visit to my dentist, Marc Whitmore, I learned more about the causes for my problem.
It turned out that my bite was out of balance. This imbalance led to me to clench and grind my teeth at night, and put stress on a major joint in my jaw and on the main nerve controlling sensation in my face.
This problem is a common condition called TMD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction, also known as TMJ).
Dr. Whitmore and his team worked with me to rebalance my bite, and they eliminated my pain without surgery or drugs. I sleep well and feel great!
Since my bite improvements, I’m hearing a lot of comments that something is positive and different: “You look younger.” “Have you lost weight?” “What products are you using on your teeth?”
Dr. Whitmore did a fantastic job shaping my teeth. While making profound changes to my bite, Dr. Whitmore maintained the familiar, natural look of my smile.
He and his team were so diligent about the function but also the look and feel of the restoration. They attended to every detail.
I am so grateful for the diligence of Dr. Whitmore and staff and feel so lucky to have picked him as my dentist way back in 1987 when I first moved to Plano with my husband. He is awesome!
