(Temporomandibular Joint) Treatment

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) treatment aims to alleviate pain and dysfunction associated with TMJ disorders. Common treatment options include lifestyle modifications, such as stress management and dietary changes, to reduce strain on the jaw joint. Additionally, therapies like physical therapy, jaw exercises, and relaxation techniques can help improve jaw function and reduce discomfort. In more severe cases, medical interventions such as medications, splints or mouthguards, injections, or even surgery may be recommended to address persistent TMJ symptoms and restore normal jaw function.


Who would require Dentures?

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) treatment may be necessary for individuals experiencing symptoms associated with TMJ disorders, including:

Jaw Pain:

Chronic or recurring pain in the jaw joint, jaw muscles, or surrounding areas may indicate the need for TMJ treatment.

Facial Pain:

Pain or discomfort in the face, ears, temples, or neck, often accompanied by headaches or migraines, can be indicative of TMJ dysfunction and may necessitate treatment.

Dysfunctional Bite:

Changes in the way the teeth fit together when biting or chewing, or the development of an uneven or asymmetrical bite pattern, may indicate underlying TMJ issues requiring treatment.

Restricted Jaw Movement:

Difficulty or discomfort when opening or closing the mouth fully, or experiencing clicking, popping, or locking sensations in the jaw joint, may require TMJ treatment.

Muscle Tension:

Persistent muscle tension, stiffness, or fatigue in the jaw muscles, particularly upon waking or after prolonged speaking or chewing, may warrant TMJ treatment.

Other Symptoms:

Additional symptoms such as ringing in the ears (tinnitus), dizziness, difficulty swallowing, or facial swelling may also prompt the need for TMJ treatment.

Overall, anyone experiencing persistent or severe symptoms associated with TMJ disorders should seek evaluation and treatment from a qualified healthcare provider or TMJ specialist to address the underlying issues and improve quality of life.
