TMJ Therapy Relieves Jaw Pain and Restores a Balanced Bite
TMJ Disorders: A Common Oral Problem
The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) sit on either side of your face, and are responsible for jaw function. As the most widely used joints in the body, the TMJ and supporting muscles may become overworked or damaged, resulting in a collection of problems known as TMJ Disorders (TMD). Common symptoms of TMD include jaw pain or tenderness, chronic migraines, difficulty biting or chewing, or popping and clicking in the jaw, among others. Our team offers effective TMJ therapy solutions to relieve these often debilitating symptoms and restore health and harmony to your jaw joints and bite.
Nightguards Protect Teeth and Provide Jaw Comfort
Teeth grinding often is a major source of TMJ problems. Nightguards, or oral appliance therapy, are the most common method of treating TMD, and reduce the effects of grinding habits on the TMJ and teeth. These custom-crafted bite appliances are typically worn while sleeping and keep the jaw joints in a neutral position. Nightguards also protect tooth structure from wear and other damage caused by grinding, and can preserve jaw joint health. Our doctors are committed to providing the highest standard TMJ care and will ensure your nightguard is custom-fit for comfort and lasting results.
The Results You Need for a Healthy Smile
During your TMJ consultation, our doctors will evaluate your jaw joints through advanced digital imaging and clinical assessment. We will also discuss your symptoms and possible contributing factors, to help create the ideal TMJ therapy solution for your needs. The symptoms of TMD may range from mild to severe. Regardless of the severity, our team understands the disruption TMJ problems cause to your daily life and is ready to restore comfort to your smile. Several factors may contribute to the onset of TMD, including stress, uneven biting surfaces and parafunctional habits like teeth grinding. As a team experienced in TMJ treatment, we can help you identify the source behind your TMJ discomfort and offer the solutions needed to reestablish harmony in your oral health.
