There are a number of things you should do if you’re interested in keeping your teeth healthy and strong. For instance, you probably know that you’ll need to visit a dentist once every six months. However, did you know that a dentist can also help you address issues such as TMJ disorder?
Untreated TMJ disorder can lead to a number of serious issues. Aside from headaches and pain in your jaw, you could hear a grinding or clicking noise when you open your mouth. In addition, because of TMJ disorder, you could also suffer from bruxism, ear popping, ear infections, or even struggle to open or close your jaw completely. If you notice any of these symptoms, we recommend contacting our team as soon as possible.
In some cases, TMJ disorder can be very painful. Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to address this issue. The first step is generally visiting our team so we can diagnose your unique needs. One of the most common treatments for TMJ is wearing a custom mouthguard made specifically for you. At other times you may need a different solution.
