Did you recently type some of your symptoms into a search engine only to find that it might be TMJ disorder you’re dealing with? Has a friend mentioned that she thought she had TMD but it turns out she was really suffering from bruxism disorder? This can be a confusing topic to approach and is nearly impossible to diagnose on your own. So, what to do about the strange and often annoying changes your oral health is facing? Come see your Riverside dentist, of course!

Why It’s Hard To Know

It’s not hard to know whether you’re suffering from TMJ disorder because you’re not good at researching. It’s because when you notice a symptom, it may very well be a symptom of multiple problems. It may also turn out that while you are, in fact, dealing with TMD, you may also be dealing with bruxism and other concerns. For instance, while headaches and neck aches may point to TMD, they might point to a slew of other concerns, explains your Riverside dentist. You will not be surprised to learn that our response to your discomfort or the noises your jaw is making is identical to how we react to your other concerns: We suggest you see us as soon as you can!

Why Treatment Is So Important

Treatment for TMJ disorder is so important because the problem may start out with minor symptoms or barely any at all. However, it can lead to serious pain, damage for your jaw joints (which you use daily for speaking and eating), and it is for the most part preventable. Your Riverside dentist encourages you to come in and receive any necessary treatment (which is completely comfortable) if you think you need it.
