TMJ Treatment/Occlusion

TMJ Treatment in Centennial CO

 

Disorders of the Temporal Joint (TMJ) affect the control of muscle and jaw movement as well as the proper alignment of your teeth. Grouped together they are known as TMD (temporomandibular disorder). The doctors at Aspen Springs Dental are highly experienced in TMJ treatment in Centennial CO.

Our doctors look for symptoms that include difficulty opening and closing the mouth, complaints of headache, facial pain or swelling, or any unusual difficulty chewing.

There are a few home remedies that can be successful in some instances.  However, if relaxation methods or over-the-counter medications aren’t working, call our Aspen Springs Dental office to arrange a consultation. Dealing with the continuing pain that will only get worse can become incapacitating, not to mention the possibility of serious damage being done to your teeth.

Grinding and clenching are common indications of a problem.  If these habits continue there can be resulting damage to the enamel that protects the inner layers of the tooth from being infected with harmful bacteria.  Don’t let the symptoms go on too long before seeking professional treatment.

Our dental professionals can offer pain-relieving techniques to make patients more comfortable, advise changes in diet to include foods that are easier to chew, and recommend proven methods to strengthen jaw muscles.  They may suggest a custom made mouthguard for nighttime use and can talk to you about possible orthodontic treatment.  A lot will depend on the cause of the disorder and the extent of the damage.
