What Treatments Are Available for TMJ Disorder?
Our doctors have helped many patients overcome TMJ disorder through a variety of treatments. We can do this by accurately aligning the joint in its proper position, allowing your jaw muscles to relax and reducing feelings of pain. Other treatments can be done in the comfort of your home, and our dentists will recommend specific muscle exercises, diet, and lifestyle changes to relieve discomfort.
Before we determine which option is best, we’ll first examine your bite and jawbone to better understand what may be causing your TMJ pain. We’ll work closely with you to ensure you’re informed every step of the way, and we’ll work diligently until your needs are met.
Common Symptoms of TMJ Disorder
When your jaw is misaligned, it can contract your muscles and build tension around your face, which confines blood flow. This is what causes migraines and headaches, because the blood pressure is increasing in response to blood flow confinement.
Other signs & symptoms of TMJ may include:
- Popping of the jaw
- Sinus pain
- Cracked or damaged teeth
- Unexplained loose teeth
- Numbness in arms and fingers
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you’re experiencing TMJ pain. If you suffer from terrible headaches and migraines, we can create a customized treatment plan to alleviate the pain.
