    TMJ Treatment

    What are the Symptoms of TMJ Disorder

    Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) presents with varying symptoms that typically worsen over time. Common symptoms include:

    • Persistent pain: It can be sharp or dull and may radiate to other parts of the head or neck.
    • Headaches or earaches: Because this joint is close to the ears and connected to the skull, you may experience frequent headaches or earaches.
    • Trouble eating or biting food: Limited movement of the jaw can make it difficult to bite and chew food.
    • Clicking or popping noises: Due to cartilage or disc damage, you may hear clicking sounds during jaw movements.
    • Difficulty opening and closing the mouth: It can occur due to the stiffness or locking of the TMJ, which can limit the range of motion of the jaw.

    Avoiding the symptoms may cause further damage to the temporomandibular joint. By seeking early evaluation and TMJ treatment in Houston, TX, you can maintain the normal functioning of your jaws.

    Our TMJ Treatment Process in Houston, TX

    During your initial visit to our dental office, we will first assess your medical and dental history to identify the possible cause of TMJ pain and discomfort. This is followed by a detailed clinical exam in which we will test the functioning of your lower jaw. Our team may also perform X-rays to visualize the jaw and its surrounding structures.

    On the basis of this evaluation, we will determine if you have temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Our Houston, TX, specialists will create a conservative TMJ treatment plan that involves the use of a custom-fit mouthguard. It is a special appliance that fits over your teeth and lowers excess pressure on the jaw joint. These appliances are also beneficial in reducing teeth grinding or clenching that may cause joint dysfunction.

    For the fabrication of a mouthguard, we will record impressions of your arches. Our team will send them to a dental lab where expert technicians will design your appliance according to the given specifications. Once it is ready, we will test its fit in your mouth and provide usage instructions.
