Relieve Your TMJ Concerns With Comprehensive Solutions

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) give you the ability to open and close your mouth with ease. If they become inflamed or injured, it can trigger a TMJ disorder. You may experience common symptoms, such as persistent jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds when you eat, and frequent headaches.

During your consultation, Dr. Smith will discuss the symptoms you are experiencing and perform an exam. He’ll also use advanced technology, such as intraoral cameras and X-rays, to identify the root cause of your TMJ disorder. Based on his findings, he may recommend one or more of the following:

  • Custom Bite Guards – These custom oral appliances act as a protective cushion between your teeth, reducing the strain on your TMJ. You’ll wear your guard at night, when teeth grinding or clenching is most likely to occur.
  • Botox Injections – Precisely administered Botox injections can help relax the muscles in your jaw, alleviating pain and tension. You can easily add these to your regular dental checkups for long-term relief.
  • Orthodontics Misaligned teeth can often contributing to your TMJ disorder. Your dentist may recommend braces or Invisalign clear aligners as a solution.
