TMJ/TMD Assessment

TMJ/TMD Assessment for Lansing Patients

Bechtel Dentistry is honored to provide our effective, holistic approach for TMJ/TMD care. Our self-assessment questionnaire is designed for ease and convenience for all of our patients living throughout Lansing and the surrounding area. This complimentary TMJ/TMD assessment can help you assess if your current TMJ health. Please contact our office as soon as possible if you answer “yes” to one or more of the questions listed below. Dr. Bechtel and our team can provide the individualized, minimally-invasive TMD treatment plan for symptom relief and long-term success. The sooner you start TMJ treatment, the risk for permanent damage can be minimized.

Our team has been providing the highest level of TMJ/TMD care since 2000. Based on our decades of experience, we’ve compiled this simple questionnaire to help determine if TMJ dysfunction is impacting your quality of life. Any questions that you answer “yes” to could potentially be an indicator of TMD or poor TMJ health. The more questions that you answer “yes” to, this may indicate a higher level of risk for TMJ concerns. We recommend scheduling your initial TMJ/TMD appointment if you believe that this condition is affecting you. Our team is happy to answer any questions you may have and can provide comprehensive answers during your TMJ appointment.
