Do you suspect you suffer from TMJ? Stop into our office for a free TMJ consultation. We’ll evaluate your symptoms and jaw alignment before discussing potential treatment options that can address the root cause of your TMJ and alleviate your pain.
How do I know if I have TMJ Disorder?
A full temporomandibular joint and muscle exam is always included with every single one of our new patient exams. During the exam, all your muscles, joints, and teeth function are evaluated. Dr. Mike and his team also utilize the latest 3D scanning and 3D printing technology to create models of your teeth that can show us if your jaw or bite is unbalanced.
How can we help?
Our office has several different TMJ treatments to suit your needs.
Many TMJ patients grind their teeth in their sleep unknowingly. With custom-fit night guards, we can prevent you from grinding your teeth or moving your jaw in your sleep, stopping TMJ pain in its tracks.
A deprogrammer is a removable retainer-like device that helps control the movement of your teeth, preventing them from interlocking. This allows your jaw to relax into a more comfortable alignment.
Botox Therapy is a proven treatment for TMJ that many patients have had success with. Botox can stop the signals that cause your facial muscles to tighten, lessening facial and jaw tension that contributes to TMJ.
What is the main cause of TMJ?
There are many things that can contribute to a TMJ, ranging from jaw injury or misalignment issues to clenching one’s jaw in their sleep due to chronic stress. Overall, inflammation and overworked muscles are two of the main causes that can lead to TMJ. We can help assess what factors may have led to your TMJ pain in order to properly address it with the best treatment for you.
What will happen if TMJ is not treated?
If TMJ remains untreated, patients may experience increasing amounts of discomfort and pain. Untreated TMJ can also lead to loss of jaw cartilage and bone mass, which has the potential to cause permanent jaw damage.
What treatment options do I have?
There are several treatment options available for TMJ, including Botox Therapy, deprogrammers, and custom night guards. We’ll help you determine the best course of action for you so you can get back to living a pain-free life.
