When you learn that you suffer from TMJ disorder (TMD), you may not be too thrilled. What you will be happy about, however, is that we offer TMJ treatment and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. You will not need to live forever with the discomfort and strange symptoms that accompany one or two jaw joints (TMJs – or, temporomandibular joints) that are no longer functioning at full capacity. Do yourself a favor if you have not yet sought treatment with us and consider a few compelling reasons to do so ASAP.
Reason #1: Treatment Is Comfortable – Why Not?
TMJ treatment is a completely comfortable form of therapy that will help you deal with TMD. It is also noninvasive and something you can easily practice at home or anywhere else for that matter. So, there are no major drawbacks. You will simply be asked to wear a comfortable mouthguard when you are sleeping to allow your jaw joints to rest for extended periods of time.
Reason #2: To End Discomfort
As you have probably already begun to notice, TMD is something that can lead to a series of uncomfortable symptoms. These may include local pain in the area of your TMJs, a jaw that makes a cracking sound, headaches, sore shoulders, and even back pain. Treatment will offer exceptional relief.
Reason #3: To Prevent Damage
Another wonderful reason to seek TMJ treatment with us is that it will prevent long-term damage. The sooner you treat the problem, the easier it is for us to inhibit your jaw joints from incurring additional injury. Since TMD can lead to bruxism (teeth grinding or clenching), this may also prevent you from developing subsequent functional disorders.
