TMD/TMJ Treatment in Sunny Isles Beach

Eliminate headaches and chronic jaw pain

TMJ & TMD Are More Common Than You Realize

Do you ever feel pain, tightness, or swelling in your jaw? Do you hear clicking or popping sounds in your jaw joints? Do you have trouble chewing or speaking? These are all symptoms of one of the most common and misunderstood dental health problems: TMJ disorder (sometimes just called TMD for short).

TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint and refers to the joint allowing your jaw to open and close. It’s very sensitive and inflammation in the joint is very common. This inflammation leads to pain, swelling, and other symptoms. Common causes of TMJ pain include:

  • Tooth grinding (bruxism)
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Misalignment of the jaw

The good news is that TMJ pain is very treatable when you work with a skilled dentist like those at Sedation Dentistry of Sunny Isles. Speak with a TMJ dentist today. Call (786) 629-1503 to schedule your consult.

TMJ & TMD Treatment Options

In some cases, TMJ pain is triggered by stress or anxiety. In these cases, breathing and relaxation exercises may be all that’s needed. However, sometimes there’s a physical issue causing your TMJ/TMD pain. When bruxism (also known as tooth grinding) is the culprit, a custom-made mouthguard worn while you sleep can reduce pain and protect your teeth from unnecessary wear and tear.

When misaligned teeth or jaw bone are the root cause, other therapies might be needed like:

  • Laser biostimulation
  • Custom oral appliance
  • Occlusal treatment
