The TMJ is the temporomandibular joint which is the main joint in the jaw. A disorder of the TMJ is an issue that prevents the patient from being able to use the joint properly for such things as speaking and eating. It’s possible that even sleep may be affected.
A minor issue with the TMJ may go away by itself, but a significant disorder of the TMJ might never go away without professional treatment. If you’ve been experiencing pain and other symptoms like jaw clicking for a while now, then it’s definitely time to seek professional care.
For a minor case of TMJ disorder, activities like TMJ stretches, massages, and exercises can relieve some of the pain and other symptoms the patient experiences. Pain medication or muscle relaxants may help too. However, these treatments may not be sufficient for a case of TMJ disorder. This is why Beyond Dental offers many advanced treatments you won’t find at most other dental offices! Beyond Dental has a neuromuscular approach to treating TMJ disorders, and this approach addresses the many complications a patient may have with their jaw joint, bite, muscles, and skeletal system.
During an initial consultation with our TMJ dentist, Dr. Cory Nguyen, he will perform a comprehensive exam to determine whether you’re suffering from a TMJ disorder. If so, then he will suggest an immediate and lasting treatment for you. This may be or include:
• Tactics for immediate symptom relief, like muscle massage, prescription pain medication, muscle relaxants, stress management, and/or physical therapy
• An SPG block (sphenopalatine ganglion block)
• TENS therapy (transcutaneous electrical neural stimulation therapy)
• Trigger point injections
If a case of TMJ disorder is more complex, we can provide:
• A TMJ orthotic that will correctly position your bite
• A permanent orthotic
• Techniques for relaxation and breathing
• Neuromuscular orthodontics
• Full- or single-arch reconstruction with either crowns or onlays
For the more extreme cases of TMJ disorder, it may be necessary to perform orthognathic jaw surgery. We can provide any of the aforementioned services here at Beyond Dental. Reach out to us today for more information or for a consultation with our TMJ dentist.
