What is TMJ Treatment?

TMJ treatment encompasses a range of techniques used to alleviate pain and discomfort associated with temporomandibular joint disorders. These disorders can affect the jaw joint and the muscles controlling jaw movement, leading to symptoms like pain, stiffness, and clicking noises.

Common Symptoms of TMJ Disorders:

  • Jaw Pain or Tenderness
  • Aching Pain in and around your Ear
  • Difficulty Chewing or Pain While Chewing
  • Locking of the Joint, Making it Difficult to Open or Close Your Mouth
  • Clicking Sound or Grating Sensation When Opening the Mouth or Chewing

Why Choose TMJ Treatment at Deluxe Dental?

  • Pain Relief: Our treatments are designed to relieve the pain and discomfort associated with TMJ disorders.

Aftercare: Managing TMJ Post-Treatment

Effective aftercare is crucial for managing TMJ disorders:

  • Follow Customized Care Plans: Adhere to the specific exercises or guidelines provided by our dental team.
  • Oral Appliances: If you are given a mouthguard or splint, use it as directed to alleviate symptoms.
  • Avoid Extreme Jaw Movements: Limit activities that strain the jaw, like wide yawning or chewing gum.
  • Regular Check-Ups: Keep up with follow-up appointments at Deluxe Dental to monitor your progress.
