Where to Get TMJ Help

0426

TMJ is a very serious and common disorder that is surprisingly not very well known or discussed. As many as ten million Americans suffer from TMJ today. However, most do not know who or where to turn to if they discover they are dealing with this issue.

If you are suffering from TMJ, it is important to see a dentist right away. While most will be able to address your condition, there are also dentist’s that specialize in this issue. You may even be able to find a directory online that can show you a list of TMJdentists in your area.

If your TMJ dentist determines that you do in fact suffer from TMJ, they will work with you to develop a treatment plan. This may include medications such as over the counter pain relievers and muscle relaxants to relieve pain and tension in the jaw muscles. Your dentist may also recommend a bite guard to ease jaw tension. Stress relief and physical therapy are also highly recommended, to relax and then strengthen the jaw.

Our dentist will be sure to work with you in trial and error, to find the best solution for your specific needs. Schedule your appointment today.
