Start Enjoying Life Free from the Symptoms of TMJ Disorder
While jaw pain is one of the most frequently reported signs of TMJ disorder, there are other signs of TMJ.
Common symptoms of TMJ include:
- Teeth grinding
- Frequent headaches
- Clicking of the jaw joint
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.
Why Treating Your TMJ Is Essential
Have you been ignoring the signs of TMJ disorder? If you suspect that you might have this condition, diagnosis is critical. TMJ disorder will not go away on its own, and could affect the health of your mouth. For example, many people with TMJ disorder will grind their teeth subconsciously. This leads to wearing down of precious tooth enamel and can seriously damage the teeth.
