It’s common for people to have jaw pain or other issues with the jaw. It’s also common for people to have actual disorders of the jaw, but these issues can be addressed by a proper professional. If you’re suffering from any issues with your jaw like jaw pain, then what you want is a jaw pain specialist. Get in touch with us here at Beyond Dental to learn more about what this kind of professional can do for you!

How can I fix TMJ pain?

Quite often when a person is suffering from jaw pain, it’s pain in the TMJ, also known as the temporomandibular joint. It’s the main joint in the jaw, and a disorder of this joint can cause significant pain that may even affect sleep.

You may be able to fix minor TMJ pain yourself with activities like TMJ stretches, massages, and exercises. We can teach you these here at our clinic. Pain medication or a muscle relaxant may also help. However, a significant disorder of the TMJ may be impossible to fix without professional treatment.

Should you see a doctor or dentist for jaw pain?

If you’ve been experiencing pain for some time now, then it’s definitely time to seek professional care. You certainly can see your doctor about this pain. The problem with this is that a doctor can only do so much, like providing a prescription pain reliever. This may not be enough for you, and the doctor may just refer you to a specialist anyway. A dentist can do so much more for you and provide both immediate and lasting relief.

What is the best doctor to see for TMJ?

For any issues related to your jaw joint, including jaw pain, a dentist is the type of professional you should see. More specifically, you should see a board-certified, AAID-credentialed dentist and jaw pain specialist, as this professional has the exact education and experience you’ll want in your dentist. Here at Beyond Dental, our certified, credentialed specialist is Dr. Cory Nguyen.

The doctor is able to provide advanced treatments you just won’t find at regular dental offices. He has a neuromuscular approach to treating jaw pain and TMJ disorder, and the approach addresses the many different complications a patient could have with their jaw joint, bite, muscles, and skeletal system. Some of the treatments Dr. Nguyen can provide include:

  • Treatments for immediate symptom relief, like muscle massage, muscle relaxants, stress management, physical therapy, and/or prescription pain medication
  • Trigger point injections
  • SPG blocks (sphenopalatine ganglion blocks)
  • TENS therapy (transcutaneous electrical neural stimulation therapy)

For complicated cases of TMJ disorder, the doctor can provide:

  • Methods for breathing and relaxation
  • A TMJ orthotic to correct your bite, or a permanent orthotic
  • Neuromuscular orthodontics
  • Coronoplasty/equilibrium
  • Full- or single-arch reconstructions using crowns or onlays

The doctor can provide any of these treatments and more right here at Beyond Dental.
