Our team at Advanced Dental Arts specializes in diagnosing TMJ disorders and providing treatment that can relieve your symptoms. Don’t endure oral discomfort or another restless night of sleep. Give us a call and experience TMJ pain relief.
What Is TMJ Disorder (TMJD)?
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJD) happens when patients experience pain from a misaligned bite or how their top and bottom teeth meet. This misaligned bite overworks muscles when they should be relaxed, resulting in TMJ inflammation. As a result, your teeth can meet differently, making the systems of TMJ worse.
Symptoms of TMJ:
- Head pain
- Jaw pain or popping
- Face pain
- Difficulty chewing
- Pressure behind the eyes
- Ringing in the ears
- Ear congestion
- Teeth grinding
- Injury to the head or jaw
- Sleep-disordered breathing
One or more of these symptoms can be painful, debilitating, and frustrating. It can also lead to excessive use of pain medication.
If you experience difficulty with jaw movement, pain or hear a popping or clicking noise when moving your mouth, you need to let your local dentist know. This could be TMJ disorder or “TMJD”.
At Advanced Dental Arts, we specialize in providing TMJ treatment and relief. Our TMJ specialist will examine your mouth and jaw to see how your teeth close together. They may also recommend additional diagnostic tests to better evaluate your condition. Luckily, TMJ relief is one appointment away. Book now:
TMJ Treatment in NYC
You may find that your TMJ issues flare up from time to time, especially during periods of stress. To treat your discomfort, our team will work with you to design a treatment plan that meets your unique needs.
Treatment may include relaxing the facial muscles with specialized instrumentation. This will allow us to determine the correct placement of the upper and lower and jaw in relation to each other. Additionally, a custom oral appliance will be fabricated using a computer-generated design to ensure the ideal position for muscle comfort and decreased inflammation of the TMJ.
Sleep Apnea And TMJ Therapy
Do you snore? Wake up tired after sleeping? Gasp for breath or stop breathing while sleeping? Sleep apnea is a dangerous condition that can shorten your life by 7 years. And often times, TMJ can be the cause.
To find out if your TMJ is causing sleep-disordered breathing, you’ll need to book an airway evaluation with a TMJ specialist. And you’ll need a sleep study reviewed by a board-certified sleep specialist. You may also need to wear a sleep appliance to keep your sleep breathing undisturbed.
