Temporomandibular Joint Disorders

Temporomandibular Joint Disorders

If you suffer from jaw pain, headaches, neck pain, or soreness while chewing and speaking, you may be one of the millions of people who suffer from TMJ or TMD. This condition can impact children, adults, men and women. When the temporomandibular joint causes pain (known as temporomandibular disorder or dysfunction syndrome), TMJ treatment can provide significant relief.

Symptoms of TMJ disorder include:

  • Facial pain
  • Earaches
  • Headaches
  • Itchy or ringing ears
  • A feeling of “water” in the ears
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Pain behind the eyes
  • Dizziness
  • Tooth pain or soreness
  • Jaw pain
  • Locking of the jaw
  • Inability to open mouth without pain
  • Misalignment of the jaw

Brentwood Dental Group is proud to help patients find relief through TMJ therapy or TMJ treatment. We use advanced technology and procedures to provide patients with solutions to reduce and manage TMJ pain.

An i-CAT cone beam CT scan provides a 3D diagnostic image that allows us to closely examine the condition of the temporomandibular joints and create a detailed treatment plan.

A T-Scan allows us to determine if there is misalignment of the bite. If you feel that your teeth do not align properly or do not “fit” together, this can help to determine the problems impacting you.

Splints and joint stabilizations can reposition a locked, dislocated, or misaligned jaw joint into the correct anatomical position.

An oral appliance worn either during the day or night can help to reduce inflammation, stabilize the jaw, and reduce other sources of TMJ pain. These appliances may be fixed or removable based on the patient’s needs.

If you suffer from TMJ pain, contact Brentwood Dental Group to learn how we can be of assistance. We personalize TMJ therapy to provide relief to patients in the Brentwood area.
