Based on the clinical findings and the symptoms, dentists can create many different types of appliances to improve bite, giving the lower jaw the ability to fall correctly into the socket of the temporomandibular joint. A TMJ splint or mouth guard can be worn, which helps reduce any stress placed on the jaw and allows the muscles to move easily. Splints and mouth guards also help to relieve pain as they help to reposition the lower jaw so it rests into the socket correctly.

Dear Dr. Jaksa,
All of us at the Dawson Academy are proud to have you as an Alumni Associate.
Your participation in the curriculum at The Dawson Academy is a testimonial to your dedication to treat your patients at the highest level of quality care. As you know, my personal passion has been to provide the necessary educational opportunities to dentists who feel “usual and customary” dentistry is not good enough for their patients.
You have shown a desire to serve your patients with uncompromising integrity and that makes me grateful for your interest in the concept of complete dentistry that enables you to provide the level of care that every patient is entitled to.
The entire faculty and staff join me in wishing you success and happiness in your continued quest for excellence.
Warm personal regards,
Pete Dawson, DDS
The Founder of the The Dawson Academy
