TMD is most commonly experienced by people 20-40 years of age, but can occur at any age and can cause pain or disruptive discomfort for short periods or for many years.
Your Smiles by Hillside dentist can perform a TMJ examination that will track the movements of your jaw, its resting position and closure paths. Electromyography, Sonography and x-rays may be used to measure your jaw's muscle functions and the jaw-to-skull relationship, as well as any abnormalities.
Relief of symptoms is brought about through a careful realignment of the malocclusion, using processes determined by your dentists' examination. Once your jaw is returned to a natural position the strain on the muscles will be eliminated, relieving your TMJ symptoms.
If you suffer from any of the symptoms listed above, please contact us and end that suffering. You need relief and we can provide it.
