General dentistry forms the foundation of a good oral care routine. It is made up of basic dental treatments designed to keep your mouth healthy and your smile bright. These services include dental cleanings and exams (which you should have twice a year), gum disease treatment, fluoride treatments and varnishes, tooth sealants, and custom athletic mouthguards.
Dr. McDowell has received advanced training in treating TMJ issues over the last 12 years, so he can help relieve TMJ pain. In addition, we use a computer program called BioPak that helps us analyze the muscle activity in your head and neck. Once we know the areas that are causing your pain, we can tailor your treatment accordingly using a custom oral device. We can help your jaw feel better as well as reduce tension and migraine headaches.
Dr. McDowell has successfully treated many people for sleep apnea over the years. If your sleep screening from him reveals that your sleep problems are caused by sleep apnea, we can have an oral appliance made for you that will help keep your air passages open while you sleep. You’ll get better sleep, snore less, and reduce your risk of serious health consequences associated with apnea.

Although I am still in the midst of treatment, I have to say that Dr. McDowell has gone above and beyond in his treatment of my TMD, making himself available when necessary and doing his best to provide treatment, comfort, and relief. Dr. McDowell's staff has been excellent to work with as well; I find them very accommodating and in this COVID era, they seem to do everything possible to ensure that they provide treatment in a clean and sterile environment.
