Signs & Indications

Wherever you are
we can help

Already Diagnosed

Most patients have been treated in some way or another for their TMJ and/or Sleep Apnea issues, but their symptoms have not resolved. That’s because traditional treatment is designed to treat the symptoms, and not the causes.

Signs of symptoms

At Evolution Dental, we trace the symptoms back to the cause, and explain what is happening, and why.

seen other doctors with no help

Then we work, using the best techniques and technologies, to correct the basis of the issues, because when you remove the cause, you remove the symptoms. And for the long run.

I went to Advanced Dental Arts to consult about a loose bridge. Dr. Russ Teasdale and his staff are very knowledgeable and caring, and he patiently explained all the options. I will definitely be going back, and highly recommend his dental office.”

Had an absolutely incredible experience here. I had dense gum tissue in between my front two teeth that looked inflamed. My normal dentist said nothing could be done. After one appointment here they removed it and gave me the smile I've always wanted. So happy I found this place! 10/10 recommend.”
