At our dental office, we take the health of your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) seriously.
TMJ dysfunction can cause a wide range of symptoms, including chronic headaches, clicking or popping sounds in the jaw, and facial pain. Our team of experienced dentists and specialists are equipped to diagnose and treat TMJ dysfunction.
If you are experiencing symptoms of TMJ dysfunction, it is important to schedule an appointment with our office. During your visit, your dentist or specialist will review your medical history, assess your jaw movements, and discuss the location, intensity, and duration of your symptoms. Depending on your individual case, we may use further diagnostic tools, such as x-rays or CT scans, to evaluate the structure and movement of your jaw.
Once we have identified the cause of your TMJ dysfunction, we will develop a comprehensive treatment plan to help you manage your symptoms. Treatment plans may include lifestyle modifications, such as stress reduction techniques, jaw exercises, and dietary changes. Depending on your condition, we may also use splints, orthodontics, or other techniques to realign and support your jaw. In severe cases, we may recommend surgery to correct any underlying structural abnormalities.
