You may suffer from TMJ dysfunction. Also referred to as TMD, this condition involves the temporomandibular joints, which hold the jaw to the base of the skull. The TMJ are sensitive to stress, fatigue, and illness, so they can easily become misaligned. When the jaw joints are out of sync, related muscles and nerves overcompensate, which causes the painful symptoms associated with TMD.
What To Expect
Your dentist will complete a full assessment to determine the cause of your TMD. Once she identifies the problem, she can suggest treatment to relieve your discomfort. The goals of treating TMJ disorder are to stop the progression of the condition, protect the teeth from further damage, and correct the bite misalignment that causes symptoms. Treatment plans depend on the individual patient and the degree of dysfunction. We offer non-surgical TMJ therapy options, the options include:
- Dental therapy using a bite appliance, such as Night Guards or Bite Guards (Often, custom nightguards will stop clenching and grinding)
- Light temple and jaw massage to relax the muscles
- Anti-inflammatory medication or analgesics
