Prior to getting treatment for my TMJ at Swish, I experienced chronic pain and tightness in my jaw. Within just a few weeks of wearing my mouth guard, I began to notice the pain go away!

James Y.

TMJ treatment has changed my life. My jaw used to lock up, and I couldn't completely close my mouth. I've been able to complete my treatment at Swish Dental, and all of my symptoms have gone away.

Sarah M.

I've struggled with TMJ for years. It gave me terrible migraines and my jaw would lock up. Working with Swish to treat my TMJ is the best thing I've ever done. I haven't had headaches or jaw issues ever since.
