Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) occurs due to problems with the jaw, jaw joint and surrounding facial muscles that control chewing and moving the jaw. This painful situation can affect both sides of the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) and can be caused by several things:
TMD has been linked to migraine headaches as well as a long list of painful afflictions, including:
TMD is most commonly experienced by people 20-40 but can occur at any age and cause pain or disruptive discomfort for short periods or 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, the jaw-to-skull relationship, and any abnormalities.
Symptoms are relieved through carefully realigning the malocclusion, using processes determined by your dentist’s 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 get in touch with us and end that suffering. It would be best if you had relief, and we can provide it.
