You Should Not Live With Pain
TMJ disorders are not something anyone should ignore. They can interfere with daily activities, like eating, and they can make it impossible for you to enjoy time with your loved ones or focus on that big project for work.
With the right TMJ treatment, you can:
- End your jaw pain and stiffness
- Stop headaches and earaches caused by TMJ
- Relieve related pains in your face, neck, and elsewhere
- Stop the wear and tear of teeth grinding
It’s true that TMJ disorders can be complex. One or more factors could be contributing to your condition. Accidents, injuries, and infections all can play a role in your problem. Whenever possible, we prefer to use conservative treatments, such as nightguards to prevent grinding your teeth in your sleep, to ease the effects of your condition.
The alignment of your teeth also can be a major factor in how severe your TMJ disorder is. If this is part of your problem, then orthodontic care may be your best bet. By realigning your teeth, you can change your bite, which could resolve the other issues you are having.
We are happy to say that you can get that orthodontic care at our office.
Get Right By Aligning Your Smile
Braces or other orthodontic options can play an important role in addressing your TMJ troubles.
When your teeth are misaligned, this affects how they fit together. That can put added pressure on your teeth as well as the temporomandibular joints, which allow you to open and close your mouth.
By wearing braces or Invisalign aligners, you adjust how your teeth align with one another. That can alleviate the added pressure on your jaw joints. It also could prevent the effects of grinding your teeth together.
Orthodontics, either on their own or in conjunction with other treatment options, can play a vital role in alleviating your TMJ problems. This can be a long-term solution as opposed to a temporary fix. Plus, you get the added benefit of a better smile when you are done.
