TMJ & TMD Treatment
Do you suffer from jaw pain or frequent tension headaches? You may qualify for TMD treatment at Thousand Oaks Dentistry, which is one of the many general dental treatments we provide. TMD is a disorder that affects the jaw joint, or the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Not only do TMJ symptoms disrupt your quality of life, they can also jeopardize your oral health. TMJ issues typically stem from an improper bite, teeth grinding habit or direct injury to the jaw or face. Regardless of what caused your TMD, it can pose serious threats to your comfort and daily functions.
At Thousand Oaks Dentistry, we have a reputable dentist who specializes in TMJ treatment. We can help patients who experience the following TMJ symptoms on a consistent basis:
- Headaches (often in the morning)
- Jaw pain or discomfort
- Ear pain or dizziness
- Bite problems
- Clicking or popping of the jaw
- Frequent jaw locking
At our Sun Prairie office, you trust that we will be diligent in finding a treatment option to give you the most effective, long-term relief. As with all of our dental services, we will customize a treatment plan to meet your unique set of needs and preferences.
Jaw Pain Relief, Facial Pain Relief!
When it comes to TMD, there are many types of treatment approaches. Our office uses advanced imaging and technology to accurately pinpoint the cause of your jaw pain and/or facial pain. Based on our comprehensive assessment of your jaw joint and the surrounding muscles and tissue, we may recommend one or more therapies. These therapies may include a dental night guard, enamel reshaping, dental crowns or orthodontics. The goal of any TMJ treatment plan is to stabilize your bite so that teeth and jaw muscles can work together without causing excessive strain on the joint.
Don’t suffer through the disruption and discomfort of TMD. In fact, the earlier you seek intervention, the more conservative your treatment can be. Contact our Sun Prairie office today, and let us help you find long-term relief from your jaw pain.
