Everyone has unique oral health needs. Unfortunately, sometimes dental issues are more complex than others, like a TMJ disorder. As a result, not just anyone will do. You need the skills and experience of a qualified and specially trained dentist. You need a professional who specializes in the temporomandibular joint, which connects your lower jaw to your skull on either side of your face. Dr. Gasper is the dentist for you. For over 3 decades, he’s gone above and beyond to help patients with specific dental needs.

A TMJ disorder can significantly compromise your quality of life.

You don’t need to let the pain and symptoms of the disorder interrupt your day any longer.
Dr. Gasper can create a personalized treatment plan to improve your oral functions and stop your pain. He combines his experience with the latest innovations in dentistry for effective TMJ therapy.

In addition, he has accomplished over 1,000 hours of training in the nonsurgical correction of TMJ dysfunction.
Dr. Gasper has the qualifications and experience necessary to treat multiple concerns affecting the temporomandibular joint, such as those caused by anatomical defects, stress, misaligned bite, or injury. He helps his patients find relief with TMJ therapy.

Using the knowledge acquired during his training at the Pankey Institute, he can enhance the relationship between the teeth and jaw to promote proper functions. Focusing on balancing the upper and lower teeth can offer long-term relief from your TMJ symptoms.
