From headaches and persistent migraines to ear pain and more – Hall Dental can help relieve symptoms of TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder). We provide TMJ therapy for patients who are experiencing TMJ symptoms.
TMJ is short for “temporomandibular joint disorder" and refers to pain in the jaw joint. While the pain is concentrated in the jaw joint and can make your bite feel unusual or out of place, it can often cause:
If you're experiencing any symptoms of TMJ, your Hall Dental team is here to help. Give us a call to arrange an appointment so that we can properly diagnose and treat you.
TMJ can be caused by trauma to the jaw area, wear and tear over time, teeth grinding or clenching – just to name a few.
Our helpful team at Hall Dental will review your symptoms, habits and lifestyle choices and help you understand how they're resulting in TMJ. Oftentimes, a few simple changes to your lifestyle can lead to significant pain relief from TMJ.
In cases where lifestyle is not a major factor, we can recommend appliances such as custom bite-guards, which can significantly improve the symptoms you're experiencing. We may also refer you to a specialist if we feel it is necessary.
Other treatment options include physical therapy, specialized medication, injections and in rare cases – surgery.
Our experienced team can help to determine the best TMJ therapy treatment for you.
