TMJ Disorder Treatment
Be Comfortable Again
Problems and disorders with the flexible temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can cause severe jaw pain, neck pain, headaches, teeth grinding, and many other painful chronic symptoms. Patients also tend to feel dizzy or unusually fatigued. These uncomfortable warning signs are often part of a larger issue commonly known as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). This discomfort is caused by a misalignment of the jaw, which can be treated through a dental therapy called centric relation.
If you think you may be suffering from TMD, give us a call today and schedule an appointment with Dr. Smith. He will complete a comprehensive evaluation of your jaw, neck, and bite alignment. If a TMJ problem is discovered, he can prescribe specialized bite splints that will gently adjust your jaw until proper alignment has been achieved. A bite splint holds the jaw in a comfortable resting position, helping to keep you out of pain while simultaneously treating the underlying cause of your condition. You’ll be feeling better before you know it.
