TMJ & TMD Treatment
The jaw joint or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) plays a critical role in your dental function. It allows you to open and close your mouth, speak and chew your food. However, if the TMJ endures excessive strain or irritation, patients can experience significant discomfort. In fact, a TMJ disorder can threaten your quality of life, as the condition is commonly associated with the following disruptive symptoms:
- Jaw popping or clicking
- Jaw pain
- Jaw stiffness
- Tension headaches
- Facial pain or ear pain
- Worn teeth
Three Creek Dentistry proudly offers TMJ & TMD treatment as part of our comprehensive general dentistry services. When it comes to jaw problems, we give Derwood patients the effective and lasting relief they deserve. We understand how disruptive jaw pain can be; therefore, we take the time to accurately diagnose your condition and offer the latest TMD treatments in modern dentistry.
Jaw Pain, Facial Pain Relief!
Jaw pain can be caused by a variety of factors. Those who suffer from TMD may be clenching or grinding their teeth during the night. Other patients may have a malocclusion or bad bite that needs to be corrected. Regardless of the cause, TMD can produce serious threats to your daily comfort and quality of life. You may feel restricted when you try to open your mouth or you may suffer from frequent headaches and facial pain. The good news is that Three Creek Dentistry can help.
We have a keen understanding of the jaw joint and its surrounding muscles and nerves. Our professionals offer non-surgical treatments to eliminate your jaw pain and facial pain for good. Most patients benefit from our custom oral appliance therapy. A nightguard can prevent teeth grinding and clenching while you sleep, a leading contributor to TMJ discomfort.
