SMILE BACK – IT CHANGES EVERYTHING

TMJ & jaw pain relief is within reach. 

We help patients alleviate or manage their TMJ symptoms.

Some dental pains, like sensitivity to cold or hot beverages, are readily noticeable. Other sources of discomfort, like those in the jaw, are harder to spot. The temporomandibular joint, often referred to as TMJ, is what allows your jaw to move.

These joints live on either side of your mouth, where the lower jaw meets your skull. When it becomes present, it’s challenging to complete even the simplest of tasks like talking, chewing, and drinking, which all require the use of your temporomandibular joints.

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction Treatment

TMJ pain caused by teeth grinding (bruxism) and TMD (Temporomandibular Disorders). The pain is typically joined by a clicking or popping when you open and close the jaw. The issue can create headache pain, jaw pain, neck pain, or even lockjaw.

DeJesus Dental Group offers comprehensive treatment for TMJ pain. One of the treatments is a custom-to-you dental splint similar to a mouthguard that often alleviates the discomfort. Wearing it at night takes some of the pressure off to give the joint extra time to heal on its own. To be sure, we will also examine the muscles in your TMJ to make sure they are working correctly.

What Causes TMJ Pain?

Soreness caused by a misaligned jaw or teeth grinding at night; especially if your jaw is misaligned, you’ll suffer from an overbite, underbite, or cross-bite. The result is additional wear on a particular area of teeth, which can lead to severe jaw pain.
