TMJ Treatments

Address pain and dysfunction in your jaw with our specialized TMJ treatments. Personalized care plans to improve jaw function and relieve discomfort.

TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders can cause significant discomfort and affect your ability to speak, eat, and even sleep. At Select Dental Office, we provide expert TMJ treatments designed to relieve pain and restore normal function to your jaw joint and muscles.

What is TMJ Disorder?

TMJ disorders encompass a variety of conditions that affect the jaw joint and the muscles responsible for jaw movement. Symptoms can include jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds when moving the mouth, stiffness in the jaw muscles, and headaches.

Causes of TMJ Disorder Include:

  • Stress, which can lead to teeth grinding or clenching.
  • Arthritis in the joint.
  • Injury to the teeth or jaw.
  • Misalignment of the teeth or jaw.
  • Excessive gum chewing.

Our TMJ Treatment Options

  • Oral Splints or Mouthguards: These devices help alleviate pressure on the joint and prevent the effects of teeth grinding or clenching.
  • Physical Therapy: Exercises to strengthen the jaw muscles and improve mobility.
  • Medications: Pain relievers and anti-inflammatories to reduce discomfort and swelling.
  • Stress Management Techniques: Guidance on relaxation techniques to help manage stress, which is often a contributing factor in TMJ disorders.
  • Advanced Treatments: For severe cases, more advanced treatments such as corticosteroid injections or surgery may be considered.

Benefits of TMJ Treatments

  • Pain Relief: Reduces or eliminates pain in the jaw and surrounding areas.
  • Improved Function: Restores normal jaw function for easier speaking, chewing, and yawning.
  • Increased Comfort: Addresses associated symptoms such as headaches and ear pain.
