How We Can Treat Your TMJ
We offer TMJ treatment plans that are based on your personal needs and examination results. Some of our most frequently used solutions for patients with TMJ include:
- Occlusal Adjustments. During an occlusal adjustment, we reshape the surfaces of the back teeth so they more completely fit together. This can alleviate the stress that is put on the jawbone, thereby eliminating the source of jaw pain.
- Night Mouth Guards. Some patients with TMJ find that wearing dentist prepared night mouth guards keeps their jaw in a more comfortable position during sleep. This leads to fewer morning headaches and soreness issues.
- Lifestyle Changes. In some cases, our team may recommend lifestyle and habit changes as an approach to solving TMJ problems. For instance, if you habitually grind your teeth, we may be able to help you stop this behavior to relieve the stressors being placed upon your jaw joint.
TMJ does not go away on its own; you must take the steps to tackle this condition. We will be more than pleased to be your partner on this journey to a healthier, pain-free dental future!
