SERVING GEORGETOWN, ROUND ROCK, AND AUSTIN, TEXAS
The goal of TMJ testing is to determine whether the symptoms you are experiencing are a direct result of a TMJ problem. This can be difficult without special diagnostic equipment because the symptoms of TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) such as migraine headaches and face, neck and back pain, can be attributed to a number of other health conditions.
Diagnostic equipment that we will use to determine if you have TMJ includes X-rays, a TENS unit, and K-7 testing.
The TENS uses non-invasive, electrical current to relax your jaw muscles so that we can analyze the at-rest position of your bite. The K7 is a computerized mapping technology that records the position and movement of your jaw.
A physical examination coupled with the diagnostic testing data will enable Dr. Holley, Dr. Brittney, or Dr. Duncan to rule out or diagnose TMD and begin your treatment immediately. The good news is that diagnosing a TMJ problem is half of the battle and the treatment methods are able to relieve you of most symptoms in as little as a few weeks.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Monica and Elizabeth made cleaning and x-RAYS tolerable. We laughed the whole time. Dr Mark was clear and concise. Everyone there has a great sense of humor. I hate going to the dentist but this trip was my best experience to date.
Friendly staff, exceptional patient care
The office is well-appointed, relaxing and the staff treat everyone like family. It's also nice to not feel 'judged' when my dental status is not textbook. Never had a dentist before that didn't give me the hairy eyeball over not flossing every day. I like their holistic approach to health, not just teeth.
Aesthetic Dentistry was professional and accommodating for a dental emergency I experienced. From Emily to Hannah to Dr Duncan I was extremely impressed with not only the customer service but the professionalism and the empathy for my work schedule. Their dental techniques are the best available providing a seamless and pain free experience. I HIGHLY recommend their practice!!
A++. Lovely people in this practice, true gentle dentistry and care. Would recommend anyone, especially someone who hasn't been to the dentist in a while and is nervous. Doctor personally calls his patients the evening of your appointment to follow up. 😎
