Protect Your Jaw Health
Do you find that you suffer from frequent jaw discomfort? If so, you may be experiencing a disorder that can be addressed with preventive care. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Hobbs or Dr. Wyatt at your earliest convenience so we can determine whether TMJ treatment is necessary.
What Is TMJ Treatment?
Your TMJs (temporomandibular joints) are your jaw joints. You have one located on either side of your head at the points at which your jaw and skull join one another.
TMD, short for TMJ disorder, causes chronic pain within your jaw joints and adjacent tissues. Whether your jaw simply feels tight and tired due to stress, or if you clench your teeth as a result of bruxism, or if other underlying causes lead to TMJs that no longer work at full capacity, we can treat your problem with an oral device. You will wear this comfortable and custom designed appliance nightly to reposition your jaw and reduce symptoms.
What Are The Advantages Of TMJ Treatment?
TMJ treatment protects your teeth, jaw joints, and surrounding muscles and connective tissue from both immediate and long-term damage. The advantages of TMJ treatment include:
- Improved comfort, while speaking or chewing
- Relaxed jaw joints
- Reduction of tenderness or pain surrounding jaw joints
- Decreased headaches
Do I Qualify For TMJ Treatment?
Do you experience tinnitus (ringing in the ears), popping sounds when you move your jaw, or difficulty moving your jaw or opening your mouth? If so, you may qualify for TMJ treatment.
