Unlocking the PotentiaL

TMJ Dysfunction

Common signs and symptoms:

Jaw Pain

Pain can occur in the jaw and related muscles, producing headaches and even migraines. It can be present at anytime, even when the jaw is not active. The intensity of the pain can develop as headaches, locked jaw, or toothaches from clenching.

Clicking Sounds

You may have clicking and/or popping when moving your jaw. For some, the sound is subtle. For others, it can be loud and cause embarrassment in group settings.

Jaw Locking

The inability to open wide without pain is a common complaint. You may experience a limited range of motion or find your jaw “locking.” These episodes may be brief, but can become more frequent if they are not addressed.

Education and Experience

The Watterson Way

Dr. Scott Watterson

Many people would define cosmetic dentistry by what they’ve seen on “extreme makeover” type shows. However, subtle changes can be just as effective at improving a smile, as well as someone’s confidence about smiling.

Many have the misconception that all cosmetic services are incredibly expensive or long, drawn out procedures, which discourages them from moving forward with what they truly want.

Dr. Watterson uses the most conservative treatment possible, while pursuing your maximum health and function. Our cosmetic care is specifically tailored to your needs, concerns, and how you want your smile to shine in the end.

Serving as a general dentist for 25 years, I have developed and curated a passion for cosmetic dentistry in all its facets. I believe that form follows function and that is the basis of my practice. When your teeth are able to function the way you need them to, beautiful form naturally follows.

My desire is for the work of my hands to reach beyond the individual to impact everyone who is graced with their smile.

Great staff! They make you feel like part of the family. If you dread the dentist due to concern of discomfort, you don’t have to worry if you are seen here. I have had the deep cleaning below the gum line, routine cleanings, and I am now receiving orthodontic treatment. I am very happy that I chose Dr. Watterson and staff.

Where does a dentist go when he needs work done in his own mouth? I go to my U of M Dental School classmate, Dr. Scott Watterson. Why? I can trust him (and you can too) to do what is proper and do it well. It doesn’t hurt either that he has a top-notch support team!
