Worsening problems with your jaw movement and health can seriously impact your quality of life. The problems with discomfort and stiffness occur when your jaw joints and muscles are not in proper alignment. This can lead to an uneven bite movement, difficulties with teeth grinding, headaches, and other issues. Fortunately, this is a problem that can be identified and treated at Sunny Smiles. After an evaluation, we can confirm that this is the reason for your difficulties. After this, we can discuss TMJ therapy, which helps with the correction of your alignment and movement. When appropriate, we can also provide information on restorative services that help correct a troubled bite function.
Is TMJ Therapy Something You Should Look Into?
When you experience problems with ordinary jaw movements that occur when you bite and chew, it can point to an issue with TMJ disorder. The problem occurs when your joints are not moving in alignment, which can lead to problems with tension and stress that cause limited motion, problems with headaches and facial pain, and an increase in habitual teeth grinding. If these problems are affecting you, a meeting at our practice can lead to beneficial services that reduce tension and improve alignment.
Planning Your Treatment For Persistent Jaw Pain And Sensitivity
The treatment that we provide for your TMJ disorder can improve bite movement and reduce tension and stiffness. The appliance helps to correct the resting position of your jaw in order to better align your joints. With this correction, we can ease the stress on the joints and muscles, which will lead to larger improvements by reducing different pains connected to your condition. We can also recommend oral appliance therapy when you have trouble with nightly teeth grinding; when this problem is not kept in check, it can lead to wear and tear, and it may even result in more significant dental damage.
Can Poor Dental Health Create Issues For Your Bite Function?
You may have a difficult time biting and chewing in a natural, comfortable manner if you have issues with damaged, undersized, or unhealthy teeth. In this situation, your dentist can recommend treatment with custom dental crowns in order to help you change your bite function for the better. We can provide crowns that imitate healthy enamel so that this work does not change your appearance.
