Dr. Jessen, he was great! I’ve heard other people who have had work done by him. They always speak so highly of him, and I just have to join them and saying he was great!


I am so grateful to Dr. Jessen for his skill and care for me during my surgery. I had no problems at all and felt wonderful…I had some questions about my medication, the office called me right back to help me understand what I was taking. Thank you, Jessen Oral Surgery. I would and have sent all my family and friends for surgery there..


Dr. Jessen and his staff are very friendly and I have been extremely satisfied with the care I have received. I have visited this office many times and would recommend it to anyone!

What Is TMJ/TMD?

The temporomandibular joint is a small joint located in front of the ear where the skull and the lower jaw meet. It permits the lower jaw to move and function. The TMJ is the most commonly used joint used in the body.

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ), when not functioning properly can cause a tremendous amount of pain. The tissues behind the joint (retrodiscal tissues) have nerves that run through them. Once they become inflamed, any slight pressure will cause and perpetuate the problem.

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders are not uncommon. Individuals with TMJ, TMD disorder may experience a variety of symptoms, such as earaches, headaches and limited ability to open your mouth. Also, this disorder can be attributed to sleep disorder and airway difficulties.

Diagnosing TMJ disorders can be complex and may require different diagnostic procedures. Special imaging studies of the joints may be ordered, and appropriate treatment will be provided to relive the problem.
