Occlusion / TMJ Disorders (Bite Problems)
The dentists at Worthington Dental Group will evaluate your dental occlusion (bite), to determine if you have a malocclusion or problem with your bite. Many patients experience discomfort in the tempromandibular joint (TMJ), which can result from a bite problem, or the habit of clenching or grinding their teeth (buxism). There is a wide range of treatments for a TMJ disorder, including adjusting your bite and designing a dental appliance, sometimes called a bite plane. The diagnosis and recommendation for treatment will be discussed with you.

“Just wanted to thank you for (on very short notice) working in my mother-in-law today; we so appreciated Toni and Dr. Cunnningham’s quick repair of her broken bridge. It is this kindness, professionalism and expertise that mean so much to your patients. We will continue to recommend your office to anyone in need of dental care.”
“Everyone is so pleasant and helpful. There is no way my experience could be any better!! Especially the office staff.”
“Dr. Cunningham is a fantastic dentist. Over time he has re-done all of my old crowns and added new ones giving me a beautiful smile. He works with an in- house lab so everything is prompt and perfect. Most of his staff has been there the entire 12 years I have been a patient so they are very accomplished and and it speaks well of him as an employer.”
