The temporomandibular joints are among the most complex joints in your body, making it possible for you to chew, swallow, talk and yawn. These joints are located on either side of your head, below your ears, and serve as hinges for your upper and lower jaws. When the TMJ become painful or difficult to move, it is important to seek 62441 TMJ treatment from our team of professionals at Dr. Hildebrand’s Healthy Smiles . We can treat TMJ disorder to improve your oral health and sense of wellbeing.
If you experience a clicking or popping sound when you move your mouth, your jaw becomes locked or difficult to move or you suffer from facial pain, be sure to describe these symptoms to our dentist, as they may be signs of TMJ disorder. TMJ disorder can be attributed to a number of causes, including arthritis, dental injuries and teeth grinding. Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is not only a potential cause of this condition, but can also exacerbate an already existing case of TMJ disorder. To prevent teeth grinding and alleviate the symptoms of TMJ disorder, our dentist can provide a customized night guard. The night guard fits over your top and bottoms teeth, like a retainer, keeping your teeth slightly separated while you sleep. The night guard reduces pressure on the temporomandibular joints to deliver helpful 62441 TMJ treatment. Our team of professionals will guide you on how to properly wear and care for your night guard, for the most effective treatment results.
