Dr. Kerry Johnson and his squad of associates help patients maintain good oral health with dental exams, x-rays, and thorough prophylactic teeth cleanings. Starting with a comprehensive oral investigation, dental detectives screen mouths for toothy suspects such as cavities, cracks, and gum disease, then delve deeper with panoramic x-rays that encompass the whole mouth, upper and lower jaw, sinuses, and jaw joints. Clients with unexplained jaw pain and inexplicable urges to hum church hymns can capitalize on the optional TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction therapy consultations to help discover possible sources of discomfort. TMJ examinations typically last an hour or longer, depending on the severity of individual conditions and the duration of mime interruptions.
