TMJ and TMD Dentistry
TMJ and TMD Dentistry in St. Louis, MO
When people come to us for a visit, it's usually for the traditional services - cleaning, teeth pulling, cavities, dentures, fixing broken teeth. However, there is another field of dentistry that sometimes has little to do with having a better smile - it's called neuromuscular dentistry.
Neuromuscular dentistry focuses on severe jaw misalignment problems and how they affect your teeth, nerves and muscles. Specifically, these problems stem from TMD - Temporomandibular joint disorder - which also goes by the name TMJ syndrome.
Your temporomandibular joint connects your jaw to your skull. This can become inflamed or misaligned for a variety of reasons, and can be exacerbated by such activities as nail biting, sleeping on your stomach, eating large-sized bites of food, and excessive clenching or grinding of the teeth.
Most symptoms of TMJ occur in the facial area, but they can also be associated with other health problems. These symptoms include:
- Ringing sound in ears
- Migraine headaches
- Pain in shoulder, back, neck, or behind the eyes
- Problems with head posture
At Brentwood Family Dental Center, we offer personalized treatments for TMJ syndrome and can help realign your jaws and alleviate pains caused by TMJ. Our skilled team are all neuromuscular dental professionals who are here to help you restore your jaws and keep your smile comfortable.

I've been with this office my entire life and they've never let me down. My hygienist is awesome and truly cares about me and what's going on in my life. Front desk staff has always been helpful. The dentists there are all top notch and take care with every patient to make it a pleasant experience.
HOLY COW AWESOME!! Most people like myself cringe at the thought of going to the dentist, but not with this dentist office. If I could shout it from the rooftop I would about how WONDERFUL these people are. They didn’t make me feel guilty about not coming for a long time. They are professional yet are ridiculously friendly are so easy to get along with. I’m really blown away at how fantastic the staff is. Anything my teeth need, it’s all here. So convenient. Convenient location. Guys, if you’re not happy with your dentist or you haven’t been for a long log time, please go here!
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Top notch office. Clean & extremely professional. Easy, pain free experience. Very reasonably priced too.
Everyone in this office is not just insanely professional, but unbelievably kind and personable. You're not a number or a client when you walk in, you're a person - almost a personal acquaintance of sorts! I don't mind going to the dentist at all. I highly recommend this dental office to anyone who wants the most relaxing and welcoming dental visit they've ever had. I kid you not.
I've been going to them for a little over two years and their staff is very friendly, kind, caring, and go out of their way to make sure your satisfied. I would highly recommend them.
Staff is friendly and comforting. Place is clean and orderly with great music to make you feel relaxed. Dentists are really good here!
Staff was very professional. Have always been terrified of dentist but they made me feel very comfortable and they were also very concerned best dentist I've ever been to and had no pain afterwards had two root canals and three fillings done no pain
My experience with Dr. Quigless great...did not feel any pain. The staff was professional🙂
I give them 5 stars Friendly and clean environment
I recently had some dental work at the Brentwood Family Dental Center on Manchester. The office manager, Kate, was professional and knowledgeable. She explained clearly the procedures and costs involved. The costs here were very reasonable. I have just moved from another state where I couldn't afford dental care. The dental hygienist, Natalie, and the dental assistant, Angela, were excellent. They did their jobs well and made sure I was comfortable. Also they told me what they were doing and why. Dr.Robert Wood calmed my fears and painlessly extracted an old crown. I'm totally amazed at the negative reviews. Would they be for the other Brentwood Dental group listed with them ?
Very professional and friendly. I was in and out.
Brentwood Family Dental Center in St. Louis, MO provides excellent dental care. I have gone on several occasions to get dental work and am extremely pleased and happy with my dentist, Dr. Kirk Quigless. He is very compassionate and he is reliable as well as everyone that works in his office. This place has such a pleasant atmosphere and everyone is really friendly and caring. My teeth look great and I couldn't be happier. I certainly highly recommend going to this dentist office for your dental care needs.
