Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hurme "The focus of my practice is the non-surgical treatment of people with TMJ disorders. I have devoted the last years to learning all I can about TMD, which manifests itself mostly as Headaches, Migraines, Chronic Fatigue, Neck and Shoulder Pain, Movement Disorders, along with the more obvious symptoms of jaw pain, jaw clicking and jaw locking. The TMJ is the most important joint in the body, and if it is not correctly aligned, it is very hard to enjoy good health! I myself have suffered from TMD,"

What People Say About Dr. Risto Hurme, DDS
My daughter has been going to Dr. Hurme for approx. 2 years. Her TMJ was horrible. Her jaw was so out of line there was a hairline fracture on the right side of her skull. I would say that several of her issues have cleared up with the tmj treatment. Dr. Hurme and staff are professional and kind.
