The only Oregon TMJ Total Joints FacilityTMJ (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.

Malmquist Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
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.
