Start Enjoying Life Free from the Symptoms of TMJ Disorder
TMJ disorder is a very common dental condition that affects people of all ages. The joint of the jaw does not work smoothly, and this causes symptoms such as jaw pain that radiates from the joint throughout the mouth and surrounding area. Teeth grinding, frequent headaches and clicking of the jaw joint are common signs as well. Drs. Anne Lyon and Doug Hinh can work with you to safely improve your jaw function and reduce the problems associated with TMJ disorder in Austin, TX.
Your Dentist Can Help You Overcome TMJ Disorder
We offer numerous options for patients who come to us complaining of the jaw pain and other problems associated with TMJ disorder. For instance, occlusal adjustments can help us reduce the stress that occurs when a bite is misaligned. During the occlusal adjustment, we can modify the way the teeth fit together. This makes it easier for you to feel comfortable when your mouth is in a resting position. Dr. Anne Lyon has a diode laser that has a pain therapy setting. After a series of treatments, the laser will relax the muscles of your jaw resulting in pain relief. We can also talk to you about removable devices you can wear at night to keep your jaw from clenching.
