As a child I had braces, headgear, retainers, and an enormous fear of dentists. It wasn’t until after a family member assured me that this office was so amazing did I seek real dental care as an adult. Dr. Logan knew it had been a while since I had been to a dentist. After getting my mouth back on track I told the doctor about my terrible neck pain and grinding issues. I honestly wasn’t aware of the real causes behind this. Being told in your twenties that you have a severe case of degenerative joint disease is very scary. However, Dr. Logan explained that doing a full-mouth reconstruction would be the answer to my pain. He went into great detail explaining everything the procedure involved. This is cutting edge technology and I trust no one with the care of my mouth other than Dr. Logan. The procedure didn’t all happen over night – it was a very involved process. However, I felt relief from my neck pain almost immediately. It was amazing. Through this procedure I could not have asked for such patient doctors or a more caring team.
Dr. Logan and Team members:
Thank you for giving me faith that there are dentists out there that actually have your best interest at heart. Thank you for making my pain go away. Thank you for taking such good care of me and I will forever be grateful. Most importantly, thank you for giving me such a beautiful smile!
Doctor’s notes: Kelly came to us with severe neck and TMJ pain and an extremely limited opening of 24 mm (normal is above 44 mm). Several head and neck muscle groups were hyperactive and painful. A three-dimensional CT scan of her TMJ’s revealed degenerative joint disease, a bio-mechanical condition in which an improper relationship between the upper and lower jaws leads to the destructive breakdown of the bone and disc components of the TMJ. Non surgical and reversible methods were utilized to eliminate her pain and muscle dysfunction and stabilize her bite and jaw relationship. Choosing not to go through orthodontic treatment again and desiring a smile makeover, Kelly chose to integrate optimal aesthetics, muscle functioning and TMJ positioning through a neuromuscular rejuvenation. – DRL
