Comprehensive Treatment to Improve Orthodontic Health
If you suffer from a TMD/TMJ disorder, you know how painful it is. Everyday things like eating and speaking become difficult and it can affect your quality of life negatively. If you’re seeking treatment to relieve your symptoms, our experienced team offers TMD/TMJ treatment in Gastonia, NC to help you.
What Is TMD/TMJ?
Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is caused by a dysfunction of the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) that connect the jaw to the skull. This disorder causes headaches as well as pain in the jaw and face. It is caused by factors such as teeth grinding and clenching, stress, and poor posture.
What Are The Symptoms?
The symptoms of TMD are painful and affect your daily life. They include:
- Stiffness or jaw locking
- Neck and headaches
- Issues with chewing
- Issues with speaking
- Popping and clicking in the jaw joint
- Pain around the jaw joint
How Do You Know If You Have TMD?
It’s difficult to self-diagnose TMD. If you suffer from any of the above symptoms, it is possible that you have TMD. However, there may be other causes for your headaches or jaw pain. Our orthodontist will evaluate your jaw and make the diagnosis for you and work out a treatment plan.
Treatments include avoiding teeth grinding, gum chewing, and teeth clenching. You may be given a special mouthguard to protect your teeth and relieve pressure caused by TMD. It’s crucial to reduce your overall stress levels that may be the root of TMD. If your TMD and stress are severe, our orthodontist may recommend muscle relaxants as well.
