Where can you turn for answers and effective treatment? If you are in Pflugerville, TX or nearby communities, the answer is easy. Just come see Dr. Jordan Tucker at Elite Smiles of Pflugerville.

What Is TMJ Disorder?

TMJ is an acronym, meaning temporomandibular joint, better known as the jaw. It is a complex structure, capable of exerting tremendous pressure with an impressive range of motion. Much like a piece of ultra-sophisticated machinery, even a slight misalignment or malfunction can cause big problems. TMJ disorder, or TMJD, is notoriously difficult to diagnose and treat because there are many potential causes and it manifests a little differently in each individual.

In generations past, primary care physicians were often tasked with diagnosing and treating TMJ disorder because symptoms rarely develop within the mouth. However, the problem – and therefore the key to finding relief – is the oral structure. Increasingly, patients are turning to dentists such as Dr. Tucker who have an in-depth understanding of the oral structure and extensive experience in TMJ disorder.

I started seeing Dr. Tucker back in 2018 in Temple when I started considering improving my smile. I had a lot of fillings as a kid that were now cracked teeth needing addressed first. Dr. Tucker did an amazing job fixing everything, and saved me a ton of money. He started his own office about an hour away from where I lived shortly after completing my work. Once I was ready to start the cosmetic work I went to 3 different dentists in my area who were okay, but I didn't feel great about moving forward with them so i decided to make the drive to see Dr. Tucker and he literally changed my life! I am in love with my my new smile and grateful for Dr. Tucker!

This dental office is amazing. It all starts as soon as you walk through the door with a warm welcome. They treat you like a family member or friend and not just a patient. Amber is so kind. Micha my hygienist explained the entire process of the cleaning to me. Made me feel comfortable and relaxed.
