TMJ Disorder (TMD) at Revive Dental
When it comes to total dental health, your teeth and your gums are not the only matters of concern. Yes, it’s important to brush your teeth at least twice a day and to floss everyday, but there are other dental problems that don’t involve tooth decay and gum disease. TMJ disorders are just such problems. The team here at Revive Dental has helped numerous patients deal with their TMJ disorders. At our practice, we can accurately diagnose the TMJ disorder and then determine the best possible treatment to use in order to reduce the symptoms and correct the root cause.
What is a TMJ Disorder?
A TMJ disorder (or TMD) is a dental problem related to the temporomandibular joint. This joint is the one that joins the jawbone to the skull. It is quite a complex joint given all of the duties that the mouth must perform. Some of the most common symptoms of TMJ disorders include clicking of the jaw, popping of the jaw, lockjaw, jaw pain, headaches, ear aches, and even tooth pain. These symptoms are caused by the jaw being out of alignment or unable to function properly.
Some of the most common causes of TMJ disorders include persistent teeth grinding, excessive jaw clenching, arthritis, tooth misalignment, jaw dislocation, and worn and torn cartilage. It’s estimated that more than 10 million people in the United States have a TMJ disorder.
How Can a TMJ Disorder Be Treated?
Once we have diagnosed a TMJ disorder and determined the exact cause of the problem, we will then be able to suggest the proper treatment for the TMJ disorder. Some of these treatments will involve non-invasive therapies while other may require more involved treatments. In order to determine which treatment is best for your TMJ disorder, you’ll need to visit one of our doctors in person. We will listen to your concerns and then use the latest techniques available to diagnose your TMJ disorder and identify its cause.
