If you are currently living with jaw pain, you should let go of the assumption that this is simply something you have to grow accustomed to. Through TMJ therapy, we can address the reasons for your persistent pain and stiffness, which can lead to welcome quality of life improvements. Discomfort is often linked to poor joint alignment and jaw movement, issues that our Riverside, CA dental office can certainly take on. In addition to offering oral appliance therapy, we can work with you by providing any recommended restorative services to help you sustain a more natural and comfortable bite.
Jaw Pain Is A Difficult Problem To Live With
When you have jaw pain regularly, it can be difficult to ignore, which can mean you spend your daily life contending with aches, stiffness, and even issues with surrounding areas. Jaw problems can actually trigger headaches, which means they can also become a persistent issue for you. Living with TMJ disorder can mean living with pain, joint stiffness, and a tendency to grind your teeth. Fortunately, this is an issue that we can address. By helping your correct poor joint alignment, we can improve your quality of life and help you avoid potential trouble with your dental health.
Are You Someone Who Should Start TMJ Therapy?
For people who have issues with poor joint alignment and jaw movement, TMJ therapy can certainly be beneficial. We can look at your case to determine what kind of care you should enjoy. That can mean starting oral appliance therapy, or treatment with a custom appliance to improve your joint positioning and reduce strain. We can also talk to you about restorative work for unhealthy teeth that make it harder for you to bite and chew comfortably.
Dealing With Dental Damage Cause By Bruxism
Unfortunately, not everyone who has an issue with TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding) will avoid oral health issues from dental damage. When you grind and clench your teeth at night, it can be especially hard to avoid harming your enamel. In addition to providing an appliance to protect you against this, we can recommend cosmetic dental work to hide wear and tear, or if necessary we can recommend that you undergo restorative treatment.
