Temporomandibular joint disorder occurs when complications arise with the muscles and the jaw in your face. When they fail to work properly, people can feel a popping or clicking when they attempt to move their jaw. Although the exact cause of the misalignment can be difficult to determine, TMJ disorder treatment can alleviate symptoms.
At Integrated Dental Health, our TMJ dentist boasts extensive expertise and experience dealing with TMJ disorders. We’ll first conduct a thorough examination, including taking a complete dental history and appropriate X-rays. We can then provide a tailored solution that addresses the problem and provides relief.
Diagnosing TMJ can be difficult, as many of the symptoms can be indicative of other problems. At Integrated Dental Health, our TMJ dentist takes the time to conduct a thorough assessment and make an informed diagnosis. Symptoms may include jaw pain, headaches, earaches, clicking sounds, tender jaw muscles, and facial swelling.
We offer a range of TMJ disorder treatment options, although you should be aware that no single cure exists for the condition. Available treatments include prescribing muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce muscle spasms, providing a custom-made appliance that minimises clenching and grinding, and teaching relaxation techniques to control jaw muscle tension.
