Common symptoms of TMJ include:
- Jaw clicking or popping
- Pain and tenderness around the jaw joint
- Head, neck, and backaches
- Ear pain without the presence of infection
- Limited jaw mobility
When you suffer from one or more of these symptoms, a neuromuscular dentistry evaluation at our Boston area office can be used to detect if TMJ is the culprit and to customize a TMJ treatment option that meets your unique needs. Left untreated, TMJ can lead to a lifetime of pain and other issues including postural changes, digestive difficulties, and tooth loss.
Our neuromuscular dentists offer TMJ treatments including:
- Tooth recontouring
- Full mouth restoration
The goal of TMJ treatment is to restore alignment, thereby eliminating the cause of your discomfort and providing a permanent solution. The TMJ treatment that is best for you will depend on the cause and extent of your TMJ, along with other individual factors. During your neuromuscular evaluation, we can help you determine the best way to treat TMJ, restore comfort, and help prevent this common problem from reoccurring.
