Thomas M. Sims, DDS


Dr. Sims might be a familiar face to some as he is a third generation Arizonan. After graduating from Saguaro High School he entered into the military and upon his return continued his education at Arizona State University. During his educational pursuit he elected to spend two years volunteering for his church in South Africa. He later returned to resume his education at California's famed dental school, Loma Linda University. Dr. Sims then returned to the valley of the sun to be near his extended family and provide care to the community he loves.

TMJ Treatment

TMJ stands for a temporal mandibular joint which is your jaw joint. Obviously, we all have two jaw joints!  When one has a medical issue with their TMJ, we would call it TMD or temporal mandibular dysfunction or disorder. This disorder typically manifests itself as a popping, clicking or possible a gravelly sound in the joint.  In some cases, the noise is absent.
In addition, TMD can be accompanied with jaw joint pain, facial pain, difficulty opening your mouth, headaches, ringing of the ears, neck or back pain or even sleep issues. Very often TMD is associated with bruxism that occurs at night and one’s sleep will be affected. If you sensing that you have these symptoms feel free to reach out to our team to schedule an appointment.
