How TMJ Therapy Relieves Chronic Pain

When you start to experience discomfort on a regular basis due to issues with TMJ disorder, a visit with your dentist can certainly be beneficial. You can visit with your dentist at Sunny Smiles to learn how this problem might be affecting you, and to find out how we can effectively address it. Through the appropriate care to relieve tension on your jaw joints and muscles, we can improve your quality of life in important ways. We should note that problems with poor bite health and alignment can be identified at regular dental exams, one of the many benefits to scheduling these appointments on a routine basis.

Are You Struggling With Persistent Jaw Pain, Headaches, Or Teeth Grinding Difficulties?

There are several issues that you can experience if you have TMJ disorder. Trouble with the alignment and movement of your jaw can lead to headaches as well as problems with facial pain, joint stiffness and discomfort, and difficulties with proper and comfortable bite movements. You should know that this condition can also lead to more teeth grinding difficulties, which can actually wear down your enamel and negatively impact your oral health.

Beginning TMJ Therapy To Relieve Discomfort

During an evaluation, we can confirm that TMJ disorder is the cause of your recurring discomforts. Once we confirm this, we can proceed with a plan to restore your oral health through treatment to improve your joint alignment and put an end to persistent pain. A custom oral appliance can help you by changing the alignment of your jaw to reduce tension. We can also discuss the benefits of restorative dental work to address problems with your oral health that can interfere with your ability to bite and chew in a way that is comfortable.

We Can Look For TMJ Disorder And Other Issues During Regular Exams

Through regular dental exams, patients are able to stay informed about the condition of their oral health. You would be mistaken to assume this simply means we let you know about common issues like tooth decay and gum disease. We can also discuss matters like TMJ disorder, which can negatively impact your life by causing you to suffer from chronic pain. Every routine review is an opportunity to receive timely warnings and care about any issues that might hurt your oral health.
