Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders, commonly called “TMJ”, describe pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and muscles that control jaw movement. For some people, pain in the jaw joint area or jaw muscles is not a serious problem. Generally, discomfort from these conditions is occasional, temporary, and occurring in cycles. The pain eventually goes away with little or no treatment.

Ekim Orthodontics was new to the Burnsville community in 2015 and has been dedicated to providing the outstanding orthodontics, customer service and compassion it is known for since we started in Prior Lake in 2007. We were so honored to be voted Burnsville’s favorite orthodontic office in the Sun ThisWeek newspaper for 2017. It is amazing to know that people recognize how much we care and how awesome our treatment methods and results are. We appreciate you all too!

The Vikings Winterfest in Prior Lake and Patient Appreciation Week were some of the fun times of last season! You may have seen us volunteering at VFW Pancake Breakfast during Winterfest with the Prior Lake Chamber. We also hope our patients and families enjoyed the Girl Scout cookies we gave out during their visits for Appreciation Week. We are looking forward to upcoming fun runs and celebrating our ten year anniversary at the Prior Lake location this summer!

Dr. Ekim is honored to be an Elite level Invisalign provider. The advancements in Invisalign technology has made it possible for many to receive the smile they have always wanted. The sequence of movement can differ from braces making this method preferable to braces in some cases. Patients seeking orthodontics can benefit from a consult with Dr. Ekim on the pros and cons of braces versus Invisalign. Dr. Ekim has developed a deeper knowledge of using various orthodontic tools to achieve the best results in the most comfortable way.
