TREATMENT INFORMATION

TMJ Disorder

If you have pain in your jaw, it’s not always a tooth-related problem. Sometimes, the root of your problem – no pun intended – stems from your jaw. Especially if you clench or grind your teeth, you could be placing pressure on your joints that’s causing you pain and other unpleasant symptoms.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) is a group of issues that affect your jaw joints. TMD can cause you pain. Sometimes, this pain extends from your mouth to your ears. You could notice your jaw locks when you open or close it. Some people notice their jaw clicks or grinds when they open it too far. You could even experience problems when you’re chewing.

How Our Dentist Diagnoses TMD

The first part of TMD/TMJ treatment near you consists of the diagnostic process. In many cases, our dentist is able to diagnose the problem just by listening to your symptoms. Our practitioner also takes into consideration your medical history. During your appointment, our dentist will inquire if anyone in your family has TMJ. If you have a family member with TMD, you’re more likely to have it. To make sure another issue isn’t causing your TMD, our dentist may perform an X-ray or send you to get a CT scan.
