Say Goodbye to Headaches and Jaw Pain

When you open your jaw, do you hear a clicking or popping sound? Or perhaps you wake up with a headache or migraine almost every day? If you experience these symptoms of jaw, neck, and back pain, you might have TMJ disorder. TMJ disorder is a painful condition caused by an imbalance between your muscles, jaw joint, and teeth. It can cause painful symptoms, worn teeth, and greatly impact your quality of life. Fortunately, our gneuromuscular dentist in Anchorage, Dr. Kendall Skinner, can help restore balance and eliminate your painful symptoms. Book an appointment today for a comprehensive analysis of your jaw utilizing our advanced dental technology.

Dr. Kendall will examine your jaw, ask you about your symptoms and use a specialized image called a tomograph to accurately diagnose your TMJ disorder.

Dr. Kendall will use K7 and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) to relax your jaw. Taking into account the six dimensions of optimal occlusion we will create a removable appliance, called an orthotic, to correct your jaw position. This process is referred to as Stage 1 Bite Therapy.

The orthotic creates a balanced and harmonious bite position. We may also use orthodontics to further perfect your bite and porcelain veneers and crowns to rebuild missing tooth structure, this is referred to as Stage 2. Our ultimate goal is to help you find long-term relief and address the actual etiology causing your pain.

Laser Dentistry Can Transform Your Life

Night Lase, Lip Lase, and Smoothe Lase are revolutionary dental laser treatments that can help you achieve a healthier and more youthful appearance. Night Lase is a non-invasive treatment that can effectively treat snoring and sleep apnea by tightening the tissue in your throat, improving airflow, and reducing or eliminating snoring altogether. Lip Lase is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that can reduce the signs of aging around your mouth by tightening the skin, reducing fine lines, and improving lip volume and contour. Smoothe Lase is a unique laser treatment that can improve the texture and appearance of your skin by stimulating collagen production and reducing wrinkles and fine lines.

By using laser energy to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, patients can achieve outstanding results without the need for surgery or downtime. Whether you’re struggling with snoring, seeking to reduce signs of aging, or looking to improve the overall health and appearance of your skin, Night Lase, Lip Lase, and Smoothe Lase may be the solution you’ve been searching for. Contact your Anchorage dentists, Dr. Skinner and Dr. Fox, to take the first step towards a healthier, more youthful you!

Laser dentistry does not hurt. That’s one of the benefits of laser dentistry! You can get the treatments and outcomes you desire without pain. The laser does emit a warm energy beam, but the procedures are pain-free.

The laser is a highly focused beam of light that can be used to alter tissue to promote the body’s natural healing processes. Our Anchorage dentists will use a special handpiece that delivers the laser energy to the targeted area. The laser energy interacts with the tissue, causing it to alter. The laser is very precise, so it only affects the specific area being treated, leaving the surrounding healthy tissue unharmed.

Patient Testimonials

“We used Excellence In Dentistry in Anchorage for cosmetic dental work for my grandson. To say this beautiful work changed his life would be insufficient. As a result of this work his wonderful personality and confidence blossomed. The professionalism and integrity of this dental firm inspires trust.”


“Before I visited Anchorage dentist Dr. Skinner’s office I had not been to the dentist in years. I was so embarrassed of my teeth that as soon as I started to talk to Dr. Skinner I began crying from shame. He was so genuinely empathetic, kind and patient that I could tell in that very moment that he was on my side. His staff is a true extension of him, everytime I met someone new they were just as kind and professional as he is. I honestly couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out, it has been life changing for me.”
