TMJ Treatment

Do you suffer with TMJ pain?

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD, or “TMJ” for short) is a condition that involves the function of your primary jaw joint.

Symptoms often include:

  • Popping, clicking or locking of the jaw
  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain
  • Abnormal tooth wear

If an abnormality is present in the jaw or the bite of your teeth, it can cause symptoms of TMJ disorder to develop. We will assess the function of your TMJ during your exam to determine whether or not it is functioning properly.

Several types of TMJ disorders can be addressed through non-surgical methods, such as bite splint therapy or orthodontics.

We can create a custom occlusal splint to position your jaw to promote muscle relaxation. Reducing the stress in your jaw provides a sense of relief.

If you have any of the symptoms of TMJ and you’re not sure where to turn, start with a dental examination. Please don’t suffer needlessly in silence. Give us a call so we can help you through the pain.
