TMJ

What happens when your bite is not aligned?

man suffering from TMJ

An improperly aligned bite can occur because of stress, teeth grinding, or other factors. It will cause improper function of the jaw joints, which can lead to TMJ dysfunction also known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD). TMD may contribute to migraines, face, neck, and shoulder pain, clicking in the jaw, and even tingling in the extremities.

We can help with TMJ issues.

If you believe your TMJ is the cause of your discomfort, let us assess your whole mouth to identify the problem. She will evaluate your bite and determine the best treatment course to relieve your symptoms. TMJ therapy often involves strengthening exercises, oral appliances, or over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications to relieve your pain.

To enjoy a comfortable smile, call our dental office today and schedule an appointment with our team to discuss TMJ therapy.
