TMJ Treatment

We Treat Frustrating And Painful Jaw Problems

Gradually worsening difficulties with jaw pain, stiffness, and unconscious teeth grinding due to TMJ disorder can lower your quality of life. There are different reasons why this problem arises, and it can affect people to different degrees—you may be surprised to learn that your frequent headaches are actually linked to this trouble with your jaw joint alignment! Recognizing the symptoms and bringing them up to Dr. Minth can lead to welcome relief from this uncomfortable condition!

Looking Out For The Signs Of TMJ Disorder

TMJ problems arise when your jaw joints are no longer moving in proper alignment. Uneven and poor motion can put strain on the joints and your facial muscles. Tension can lead to pain in these spaces as well as in your face, head, and neck. If you suspect that you are having issues with TMJ disorder, pay attention for the following symptoms:

  • Difficulties with bite movements due to stiffness and/or pain
  • Popping or clicking sounds that accompany jaw movements
  • More frequent headaches
  • Pain in the facial area
  • An increased tendency to grind your teeth
  • Neck and shoulder discomfort

Addressing Your TMJ Issues

We take care to both confirm TMJ disorder is the reason for a patient’s discomfort and to find the cause. A range of treatment solutions can be effective. While some benefit from exercises that retrain the jaw or the use of a custom oral appliance, others may require restorative services to make meaningful bite improvements possible. In some cases, long-term relief can call for surgery. By carefully evaluating you and finding the right solution, we can proceed with a plan that puts TMJ problems in your past!
