TMJ Treatment

If you are experiencing jaw pain, clicking or discomfort, you are not alone. TMJ disorders affect millions of people worldwide, but the good news is, effective treatment options are available at Shores Family Dentistry to bring relief and restore comfort to your daily life.

Understanding TMJ Disorders
The temporomandibular joint is what connects your jaw to your skull and helps with functions like chewing and speaking. When this joint is overstressed or becomes dysfunctional, it can lead to uncomfortable symptoms collectively known as TMJ disorders.

Common signs of TMJ disorders include:

  • Jaw pain or tenderness
  • Difficulty chewing or discomfort while chewing
  • Clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing your mouth
  • Locking of the jaw joint
  • Ear pain or pressure
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Facial muscle fatigue

At Shores Family Dentistry, we understand the impact TMJ disorders can have on your quality of life. That is why we offer personalized treatment plans tailored to your unique needs and symptoms. Our experienced dentists will work closely with you to diagnose the root cause of your TMJ disorder and develop a customized treatment approach.

Treatment Options
Our treatment options include:

  1. Lifestyle Modifications: Simple changes in habits like avoiding chewing gum, practicing stress-relief techniques and maintaining good posture can alleviate TMJ symptoms.
  2. Custom Mouthguards: We offer custom-fitted mouthguards designed to reduce teeth grinding (bruxism) and jaw clenching, common contributors to TMJ disorders. These oral appliances provide cushioning and support to alleviate pressure on the jaw joint.
