TMJ Therapy - Effective Treatment for Jaw Joint Disorders

At Warrington Dental PC, we offer TMJ therapy to address issues related to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), the joint that connects your jaw to your skull. Our treatments aim to alleviate pain and improve jaw function.

What is TMJ Therapy and Who Needs It?

TMJ therapy encompasses a range of treatments designed to relieve discomfort and dysfunction of the TMJ. It's beneficial for individuals experiencing jaw pain, difficulty chewing, or other symptoms related to TMJ disorders.

What are the Symptoms of TMJ Disorders?

Symptoms of TMJ disorders include jaw pain or tenderness, aching pain in and around the ear, difficulty chewing, locking of the joint, and discomfort while opening or closing the mouth. Some patients may also experience headaches and neck pain.

How is a TMJ Disorder Diagnosed?

Diagnosis involves a thorough examination of your jaw and bite, a review of your medical history, and sometimes imaging tests like X-rays or an MRI. This helps us understand the cause of your symptoms and plan effective treatment.

What Treatments are Available for TMJ Disorders?

Treatment options can vary depending on the severity of the disorder. They may include oral appliances (like night guards), physical therapy, medications, and in some cases, more advanced treatments such as injections or surgery.

How Can I Manage TMJ Symptoms at Home?

Home management techniques include practicing stress-reducing exercises, avoiding excessive jaw movements, applying heat or cold to the affected area, and eating soft foods to reduce strain on the jaw.
