Are you experiencing jaw pain, headaches, or clicking sounds when you open and close your mouth? You may have temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. At Rolling Creek Family Dentistry our experienced dentists, Dr. Michael and Dr. Justine, specialize in providing effective TMJ treatment to alleviate your discomfort and restore proper jaw function.
Understanding TMJ Disorder:
TMJ disorder refers to a condition that affects the temporomandibular joint, which connects the jaw to the skull. It is caused by clenching and grinding and can result in pain, stiffness, limited jaw movement, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Our dentists will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the underlying causes of your TMJ disorder and develop a personalized treatment plan.
Comprehensive TMJ Treatment:
Our TMJ treatment approach may include:
Night guard: We may recommend the use of a night guards, to help alleviate TMJ-related symptoms. These custom-made oral appliances are worn over the teeth during sleep to reduce clenching and grinding, providing relief to the jaw joint and surrounding muscles.
Lifestyle Modifications: Our dentists will provide guidance on lifestyle changes that can help manage TMJ disorder symptoms. This may include stress reduction techniques, jaw exercises, and dietary modifications to reduce jaw strain.
Medications: In some cases, our dentists may prescribe pain relievers or anti-inflammatory medication to alleviate any discomfort.
Dental Procedures: If misaligned teeth or a bad bite contribute to your TMJ disorder, our dentists may recommend orthodontic treatments, such as braces or clear aligners, to correct the alignment of your teeth and improve your bite.
Our personalized treatment approach targets the underlying causes of TMJ disorder, providing relief from jaw pain, discomfort, and associated headaches. By addressing TMJ-related issues, our treatment plans aim to restore proper jaw function, allowing you to eat, speak, and open/close your mouth comfortably.
