Get Relief from TMJ/TMD at Everbright Dental
If you experience jaw pain, clicking jaw joints, or stiffness around the jaw, you might be dealing with temporomandibular disorder (TMD). At Everbright Dental, we offer personalized TMJ/TMD treatment plans to help you get relief from discomfort and restore your jaw’s function.
Causes of TMD
TMD can be caused by various factors, including teeth grinding or clenching, jaw joint disc dislocation, osteoarthritis, joint inflammation, or muscle strain due to poor posture. Some patients may find their symptoms worsening under high levels of stress.
To determine if you’re suffering from TMD, our team will conduct a thorough dental and medical examination. This includes discussing your symptoms and medical history, and a detailed exam of your head and neck, focusing on the jaw muscles and joints. We may recommend a screening X-ray to rule out other conditions.
At Everbright Dental, we’ll design a custom treatment plan to address your TMJ/TMD symptoms. Treatment options may include:
- Mouthguards or splints to prevent teeth grinding and clenching
- Lifestyle changes, such as stress management or avoiding hard-to-chew food
- Jaw exercises to alleviate stiffness and improve mobility
- Medications to relieve pain and inflammation
- Botox® treatment
If you’re experiencing TMD symptoms, don’t wait to seek treatment. Contact Everbright Dental today to schedule a consultation.
