TMJ/TMD Teatment

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), often referred to simply as TMJ, is a condition that affects the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which connects the jawbone to the skull. TMD can cause a range of symptoms, including jaw pain, facial discomfort, clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing the mouth, and difficulty chewing or speaking.

At our practice, we understand the impact that TMJ/TMD can have on your daily life, and we're here to help you find relief. We offer personalized TMJ/TMD treatment options tailored to your specific needs and symptoms.

Here's how we can help:

1. Comprehensive Evaluation: Our experienced dental team will conduct a thorough evaluation of your TMJ/TMD symptoms, including a physical examination and, if necessary, advanced imaging techniques such as X-rays or MRI scans. This allows us to accurately diagnose the underlying cause of your symptoms and develop an appropriate treatment plan.

2. Conservative Therapies: In many cases, TMJ/TMD symptoms can be effectively managed with conservative treatment approaches, such as lifestyle modifications, stress management techniques, and physical therapy exercises to improve jaw function and reduce muscle tension.

3. Customized Oral Appliances: For patients experiencing jaw pain or discomfort due to teeth grinding or clenching (bruxism), we may recommend a custom-fitted oral appliance, such as a night guard or splint, to help protect the teeth and alleviate pressure on the TMJ.

4. Medication: In some cases, medications such as muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatory drugs, or pain relievers may be prescribed to help alleviate TMJ/TMD symptoms and improve comfort.

5. Advanced Therapies: For more severe cases of TMJ/TMD or those that do not respond to conservative treatments, we may explore advanced therapies such as Botox injections, trigger point injections, or surgical interventions to address underlying structural issues or alleviate pain.

Our goal is to provide you with effective TMJ/TMD treatment options that address your symptoms and improve your quality of life. We'll work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs and helps you find relief from TMJ/TMD discomfort.
