What Is TMJ?
TMD (temporomandibular disorders), commonly referred to as TMJ, is characterized by significant pain in the jaw and limitation in jaw joint movement. This condition can affect chewing, talking, swallowing, and in some cases can cause breathing issues.
There are several symptoms associated with TMJ, including recurrent facial pain, swelling, constant teeth grinding, facial sensitivity, jaw joint locking, and a limited range of motion in the jaw.
Symptoms vary, but generally can include:
- Pain and tenderness around the jaw, ears, cheeks, and neck
- Stiffness in the jaw
- Painful chewing
- Pain while yawning
- Locking of the jaw
- Uncontrolled change of facial expression
- Changes in how the upper and lower teeth fit together
If you are experiencing significant jaw pain or discomfort, Dr. Heather Moore will perform an examination and recommend a treatment option that will work for you.
How Our TMJ Treatments Can Help!
At Homegrown Dental our team uses various treatment options to give our patients the comforting relief they deserve!
If you are diagnosed with this condition, Dr. Moore can help ease the pain and treat the dysfunction with the following treatment methods with a custom oral appliance (bruxism mouth guard) and medicinal therapy injections! These injections are usually associated with cosmetic practices, but when injected into just the right area, they can relieve the more severe symptoms of TMJ, such as migraines, pain, earaches, jaw tension, and more.
Your facial appearance will be unaffected by this type of TMJ treatment - the only thing you'll notice is a reduction in pain!
