No one wants to face a life of daily discomfort, but for patients with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), that’s exactly what life may be like. The most common symptoms of TMD include headaches, migraines, earaches, and pain in your neck, shoulders, or back. Other symptoms include:
If you think you may have TMD, or if you have recently been diagnosed with it, you should know that you do not have to live the rest of your life with your uncomfortable symptoms — relief is possible.
Bruxism, the conscious or unconscious grinding or clenching of teeth, can also cause pain similar to the discomfort caused by TMD. This grinding or clenching happens most often at night and in people ages 20-40, though patients of all ages can experience it at any time of day. In addition to discomfort, bruxism can lead to damaged teeth. The extra pressure can wear down molars or cause cracking. Talk to our team if you think you may be affected by bruxism.
We combine cone beam technology with a bite evaluation, a neuromuscular evaluation, a vapor coolant diagnosis, and thermography to give you an accurate diagnosis. Once we know what your needs are, we can begin planning your treatment. That might include a combination of the treatments listed below:
