What are TMJ Disorders?
At L.E.S. Dental Group, we understand the pain and discomfort that can come with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). That’s why we offer a range of treatments to help alleviate the symptoms and improve the function of your jaw.
TMJ disorder is a condition that affects the joints and muscles that control the movement of your jaw. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including stress, teeth grinding, or misaligned teeth. Our experienced dental team will work with you to identify the underlying cause of your TMJ disorder and develop a personalized treatment plan.
One of the most common treatments for TMJ disorder is the use of a custom-made night guard. This is a dental appliance that is worn at night to prevent the teeth from grinding or clenching together, protecting the jaw joint from further damage and reducing the symptoms of TMJ disorder.
Other treatments for TMJ disorder may include physical therapy, stress-reducing techniques, such as exercise or meditation, and in some cases, orthodontic treatment to realign the teeth and alleviate the symptoms of TMJ disorder.
We are committed to helping you achieve optimal oral health and a comfortable, pain-free life. Don’t let TMJ disorder affect your quality of life any longer. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about our treatment options for TMJ disorder.
