I have been going to Sequoia Dental for 15+ years and they are absolutely the best in Visalia. Dentists used to give me anxiety – now I actually look forward to my cleanings.
If you’ve ever experienced TMJ problems, you understand how much jaw pain they can cause. It can be a real hassle to chew, laugh, yawn, or even talk. The good news is that the dental team at Sequoia Dental Office offers Visalia TMJ treatment with a custom-fit oral appliance. It can help you:
Don’t give up hope! Call us today at 559-608-3533 to schedule your complimentary consultation or second opinion. Our expert dentists want to give you the help you need.
Your temporomandibular joints are situated on either side of your head, controlling your jaws and allowing you to open and close your mouth. For reasons that researchers still don’t fully understand, these joints can become irritated and inflamed. This causes a great deal of pain when your jaw moves.
However, we offer hope for your aching jaw using a custom oral appliance.
In addition, the device will also prevent you from grinding your teeth while sleeping. Left untreated, teeth grinding can damage your tooth enamel, requiring restorative or cosmetic dental treatments to repair. Since teeth grinding is also a major cause of tension headaches, our targeted treatment will help you experience fewer and less-intense headaches as well.
Great group of people who actually cared about me and my family’s health.

Excellent service. The Hygienist did an excellent job in taking care of my dental needs . Very professional .
I absolutely recommend sequoia dental. All staff from the front office to the drs are exceptionally friendly and welcoming. My personal experience having my wisdom teeth removed was exceptional. I did not feel one ounce of pain throughout the whole procedure. I didn’t even feel the needle used to numb my mouth. The dentist took his time to make sure I was comfortable and completely numb. However the process was fast and I drove home with a smile on my face.
The key to relieving TMJ pain is easing pressure on your jaw. To do that, we can make you an appliance that gently moves your jaw into a position that keeps pressure off your jaw. The appliance also keeps you from clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth, two behaviors often found in those with TMJ pain.
TMJ problems are more common in women than men. Women may be more prone to TMJ pain during pregnancy due to hormonal changes, swelling, and changes in their usual sleep patterns. TMJ is often linked to jaw clenching and teeth grinding during the night, behaviors that occur more if sleep is disrupted. Since our TMJ treatment consists of a custom-made appliance, not medication, it is safe during pregnancy.
It really depends on your insurance policy. Our team is happy to look at your benefits to see if TMJ treatment is covered. We never want finances to be a barrier to treatment. If insurance won’t cover the cost, we accept many forms of payment, including checks, credit cards, and third-party financing from CareCredit and LendingClub. Our in-house membership plan may also help cover part of the cost.
