At Centreville Dental, we understand the impact that temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and temporomandibular disorder (TMD) can have on your daily life. TMJ refers to the joint connecting the jawbone to the skull, and TMD encompasses a range of conditions affecting this joint and the surrounding muscles. If you're experiencing symptoms like jaw pain, headaches, difficulty chewing, or clicking sounds when you open or close your mouth, we're here to help.
Our comprehensive approach to TMJ and TMD treatment focuses on providing personalized care and improving your overall well-being. Our experienced dental professionals will begin by conducting a thorough evaluation to accurately diagnose your condition. Through a combination of advanced diagnostic techniques and listening to your symptoms, we will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
Treatment for TMJ and TMD may involve a combination of approaches to address the underlying causes and alleviate your symptoms. We believe in conservative, non-invasive methods whenever possible. For mild cases, lifestyle modifications such as stress management techniques, jaw exercises, and avoiding certain foods that may aggravate the condition may be recommended.
In some cases, we may suggest dental interventions to correct any bite misalignment or tooth grinding habits that contribute to TMJ and TMD symptoms. This could include orthodontic treatment, dental splints or mouthguards to alleviate pressure on the jaw joint, or dental restorations to improve bite stability.
We offer innovative therapies such as low-level laser therapy, ultrasound therapy, and trigger point injections to provide targeted pain relief and promote healing in the affected muscles and joints.
Don't let TMJ and TMD disrupt your quality of life. Take the first step towards relief and book a consultation at our dental clinic. Together, we'll develop a comprehensive treatment plan to address your specific needs and help you regain comfort and function in your jaw. Let us be your partner in restoring your oral health and well-being.
