THE Symptoms of TMJ disorder
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects your lower jaw to your head. TMJ disorders, also known as TMD, occur when this jaw joint becomes stressed, injured or misaligned.
TMJ disorders can have a significant impact on your oral health and your overall quality of life. Some of the ways in which a TMJ disorder may affect you include:
- Frequent jaw pain or facial pain
- Grinding, clicking or popping sounds when you open and close your mouth
- The inability to open your mouth wide when speaking, yawning or chewing
- A locked jaw
- Pain when chewing and biting
- Pain in the neck, shoulders or ears
- Frequent headaches or migraines
- Pain or pressure behind the eyes
- Tenderness in the jaw muscles
- Sudden changes in the way your upper and lower teeth fit together
Effective TMJ Treatment Tailored to You
When it comes to TMJ treatment, our dentist employs a comprehensive and personalized approach to address the root causes of your discomfort.
We begin with a thorough examination and evaluation of your jaw joint and surrounding muscles. Our team utilizes state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to accurately assess your condition, ensuring precise treatment planning.
Our TMJ treatment services in Palmdale, CA, encompass a range of effective modalities, including:
Customized Oral Appliances: We design and fabricate custom oral appliances, such as dental orthotics, occlusal guards, and daytime-nighttime appliance (DNA) to alleviate the symptoms of TMJ. These appliances provide optimal support to your jaw joint, reduce clenching or grinding, and help relax the muscles, promoting natural healing and pain relief.
Occlusal Adjustment: Our skilled dentist will analyze your bite alignment and make precise adjustments to ensure proper occlusion. By balancing your bite, we alleviate undue stress on your temporomandibular joints, reducing pain and restoring harmony to your jaw function.
Physical Therapy Exercises: We provide guidance on specific jaw exercises and relaxation techniques that can strengthen the jaw muscles, increase flexibility, and alleviate TMJ-related discomfort. Our team will guide you through these exercises, empowering you to actively participate in your own healing process.
Medication and Pain Management: In some cases, we may recommend medications to manage pain and inflammation associated with TMJ. Our dentists will prescribe the most appropriate medications tailored to your specific needs, ensuring optimal relief and comfort.
