Temporomandibular Joint Reconstruction (TMJ)

The only Oregon TMJ Total Joints Facility

TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders are problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have had symptoms like pain or a “clicking” sound, you probably have a TMJ problem. TMJ disorders develop for many reasons. You might clench or grind your teeth, tightening your jaw muscles and stressing your TM joint. Or, you may have a damaged jaw joint due to injury or disease. Whatever the cause, the results may include a misaligned bite, pain, clicking or grating noises when you open your mouth, or trouble opening your mouth wide. Your dentist can provide diagnosis of TM joint disorder and recommend the appropriate treatment course.

There are various conservative treatment options that can improve the harmony and function of your jaw. However, when all conservative methods have been exhausted without relief of the symptoms, Jay P Malmquist, DMD or Michael P Malmquist, DMD can determine if you are a candidate for and perform a joint reconstruction procedure.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

Do to an accident and infections I have had several surgeries to my TMJ's, lower jaw or orthognathic, Wisdom teeth removed, Dental implants, Total TM joint implants all several times. Including braces several times, skin grafts to repair receding gum line and removal of scare tissue to remove poor healing scars. I have worked with Dr. Malmquist for many many years by choice and would work with no one else. Though I have had to have consultations from many doctors though out the Portland area and around America. I would prefer to work with Dr. Jay Malmquist then with any one else in the country. Dr. Jay Malmquist is a wonderful doctor who answers questions and has always answered my questions honestly and quickly. He makes me feel that no question is stupid and that I count to him as more then just a dollar sign.
