Surprise! November, amongst other exciting things, is TMJ Awareness Month! While you may not be sure how to celebrate or recognize something like this, your Riverside dentist has all of the tips you need. Particularly for those who are not necessarily certain about what it takes to detect or treat TMJ disorder (when your jaw joints are tired, stressed, strained, damaged, and/or not working up to par), this can be an extremely important moment. So, spend a minute with our Riverside, CA team, as we offer a quick dose of insight into what awareness means for your TMJ health!

Don’t Forget Your Visits With Us

Your Riverside dentist encourages you to remember your preventive dental visits with us (these are your dental checkups and dental cleanings). When you come in for these examinations and cleanings, you’re enjoying the benefit of plaque-and-tartar removal, while we take a nice comprehensive look at your oral health. If TMJ disorder is occurring or is potentially on the horizon, this lets us offer you insight (and treatment, if you require it), so you can protect your jaws. So, schedule your next visit in honor of TMJ Awareness Month!

Don’t Ignore Symptoms, Big Or Little

Feeling or noticing symptoms of TMJ disorder? Whether they’re very obvious or nearly imperceptible, don’t ignore them. In honor of TMJ Awareness Month, come in! Call your Riverside dentist with an explanation and we will see you soon.

Do Give Your Smile A Rest

Your Riverside dentist also suggests you remain aware of the fact that your jaw joints need rest, particularly when TMJ disorder is happening. This means being careful with the foods you eat (nothing very hard or chewy), with the amount of eating you do (lots of snacking can tire out jaw joints), etc.

Do Start Treatment With Us Very Soon

We offer TMJ disorder treatment! Ready? Remain aware of your TMJ health and protect it by seeing your Riverside dentist for treatment ASAP.
