Dentist for lasting relief from TMJ disorders; benefit from advanced training, diagnostics in Turlock, CA
Chronic migraines. Persistent neck and shoulder pain. Ringing in the ears. These and many other disruptive symptoms may be rooted in the jaw; specifically, disorders associated with the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ). These joints connect the skull to the jaw. Any time TMJs and their interconnected “parts” (ligaments, muscles, bones, and cartilage) are damaged, all sorts of problems can arise.
As a dentist, Dr. Ramsin K. Davoud has considerable, focused knowledge of the anatomy and function of the teeth, gums, and oral and maxillofacial structures. However, Dr. Davoud has distinguished himself from other dentists in and around Turlock, CA. He completed advanced education in TMJ therapy at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies and the United States Dental Institute. He has also invested in the latest technologies to support prompt, healthy, and lasting resolution of often debilitating TMJ-related symptoms.
Effective treatment starts with advanced diagnostics
All treatment plans are informed by your diagnosis. It is essential that we get to the root cause of your pain, stiffness, and other concerns. To do so requires an accurate understanding of the underlying condition or cause. Ramsin K. Davoud DDS Family & Cosmetic Dentistry uses the K7 Evaluation System by Myotronics to non-invasively measure and record how your jaws and chewing muscles are functioning.
This computer-aided technology renders data that plays a central role in the development of an effective neuromuscular dentistry treatment plan. Importantly, our approach and the technologies that we use to support this approach, account for the entire “system,” including muscles, bones, and nerves. Such tools provide insights into your unique anatomy and physiology, which are applied toward treatments that restore balance to the many parts that make up this complex system.

Numerous behaviors, habits, and conditions can give rise to TMJ disorders. By gathering as much information as we can about your symptoms, modifications and therapies can be recommended that resolve the underlying causes. These recommendations do not merely provide “symptom relief.” They provide real, lasting resolution of symptoms by supporting healthy balance and function.
So, while many patients may benefit from the likes of oral appliance therapy, not everyone is well-suited to these devices designed to reposition the jaws and to lift the pressure placed on the jaw joints. Alternately, or in combination with other interventions, Dr. Davoud may recommend the application of ultra-low frequency electrical impulses delivered via a TENS unit to relax chewing muscles. Likewise, customized Gneuromuscular (GNM) devices correct bite imbalances to promote better jaw, head, and neck posture and function.
