Do you often get migraines or headaches? Does your jaw click or make popping noises? Do you have face, neck, or shoulder pain? If you experience these issues, you may have problems with your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). TMJ disorder, also known as TMD, can cause all of the above mentioned problems, as well as ringing in the ears (tinnitus), discomfort from chewing, and a soreness or stiffening in the jaw. If TMD goes untreated, it can cause more problems down the road. Come see Dr. Nance and our team to determine if you have TMD and to fight it early on.
Our highly trained team is equipped with the tools and the knowledge to mitigate TMJ issues before they grow. We may need to perform certain dental procedures to correct your bite or a misaligned jaw or teeth. We also offer night guards to decrease grinding or other custom-made TMJ appliances to help with your specific needs.
Advantages of Treatment
If you are experiencing TMD, you may not even realize the effect it has on your life and overall well-being. However, once you have gone through treatment, you may notice several advantages, including the following:
- Relief from pain
- Improved sleep
- Easier movement of the jaw
- Ability to better concentrate
- More food options
