Take Control of Your TMJ Symptoms for Lasting Relief

A TMJ disorder can happen as a result of teeth grinding, a jaw injury, arthritis, or tooth misalignments. You may experience a variety of symptoms including jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds, headaches, and tooth sensitivity from teeth grinding. If you bring up this issue during your checkup, or are concerned enough to make an appointment, your dentist will begin with a thorough exam. Our team will take digital X-rays to get to the root of the problem and make the diagnosis that is ideal for your needs.

Your treatment may include:

  • Bite Guards – Using digital scanners, our team will capture impressions of your teeth. The impressions are used to create a custom-made bite guard for you. This oral appliance will add a cushion between your teeth, which can help alleviate TMJ symptoms. It also stops damage from teeth grinding or clenching.
  • Botox – Botox injections can relax the muscles responsible for jaw tension and pain. They will need to be repeated regularly for the best results. You can incorporate the treatments into your regular checkups.
  • Orthodontics Orthodontics can straighten misaligned teeth and help alleviate TMJ symptoms. By correcting bite alignment, you’ll reduce jaw strain and enjoy improved oral function.
