Temporomandibular joint syndrome or TMJ/TMD requires the specialized skill of a dental professional who has undergone extensive training in treating dysfunction of the jaw. It is a complex disorder with treatments that are not always straightforward. TMD can involve a wide range of symptoms and various levels of malfunction within the jaw joint itself or the surrounding muscles and nerves. Dr. Bob Perkins proudly treats all types of TMJ disorders from our San Francisco office. He uses his superior knowledge and experience to accurately diagnose the cause of your jaw joint symptoms so that he can offer an effective and long-term treatment option going forward.
TMJ syndrome is specific to each patient. Many patients experience painful and functional issues of the jaw that can greatly disrupt their everyday comfort and quality of life. While the pressure and strain are typically in the jaw, it is common to experience unrelenting pain in areas of the face, head, neck and shoulders. Treatment to relieve TMJ symptoms always begins with an accurate diagnosis of what is causing the unnecessary strain on the jaw area.
At Bob Perkins, DDS of San Francisco, we are equipped to offer a wide variety of treatment options, including same day relief using manipulations as well as TMJ physical therapy and TMJ orthodontics.
Dr. Perkins has reputable experience and success in diagnosing and treating TMJ syndrome. His unrivaled expertise has led him to be recognized as a leader in this specialized field of dentistry. Our San Francisco office offers cutting-edge imaging and equipment, ensuring each patient receives a superior level of care and a highly customized treatment plan. Choosing a TMJ specialist such as Dr. Perkins can often give you the opportunity to experience immediate and lasting relief of your symptoms starting from the very first visit.
If you are suffering from TMD or failed to find relief from previous TMJ therapies, we invite you to contact our office today for a consult with Dr. Bob Perkins. Our newest office treats patients coming from San Francisco and the Bay Area with effective remedies for restored jaw comfort and function.

He is the best dentist I have ever been to and I don’t see myself ever changing unless I move out of state. He is worth the drive from anywhere and it gives you a great reason to take a vacation day and to go to the beach as well.
I broke my tooth during the holidays and Dr Perkins saw me immediately even though he was supposed to leave for the holidays. And the staff are as charming and caring as he is. I walked out of there within an hour with my temporary tooth in place and not one ounce of pain. He’s the best !
Always a pleasure to see the dentist knowing my smile is improving! Bob is caring and I tell all my good friends about him & people who appreciate beauty and attention to detail.
