TMJ therapy, also known as temporomandibular joint treatment, is focused on correcting a misaligned jaw. TMJ, or TMD, is a disorder that happens when the joint that connects to the lower jaw becomes injured or shifts out of place, causing discomfort and misalignment. This most often happens due to teeth grinding (bruxism), arthritis, and head, neck or jaw injury.
Common symptoms of TMJ are:
Our dentist may suggest different treatment options, depending on the severity of your TMJ disorder. These options can include muscle exercises, dietary changes, a mouth or night guard, and, in more intensive cases, jaw surgery. After determining the extent of the
treatment needed, our dentist will create a treatment plan with you to help you find the relief you need.
If you have recently had severe trauma to the head, neck or shoulders, we recommend also seeing your family physician or checking in to the emergency room before seeking treatment from our dentist.
