Living with troubled jaw alignment and movement can be difficult. The problem you have with your joint positioning and movement can create issues with stiffness and pain, create ongoing difficulties with headaches, and raise your risk for harmful nightly teeth grinding. Fortunately, this is a treatable problem, so you can put a stop to TMJ disorder, a problem that can lower your quality of life. With the help of your Temecula, CA dentist, you can fix problems with poor joint alignment and movement and reduce problems with pain and stiffness. When appropriate, we can also talk to you about restorative dental work to improve your bite function.
Is TMJ Disorder Negatively Affecting You?
There are several signs of poor jaw alignment and troubled bite movement that you can pick up on. Are you frequently feeling resistance, stiffness, or pain when you bite and chew? Do you have a tendency to grind or clench your teeth at night? Have headaches become a more frequent issue for you? With unresolved TMJ disorder, all of these issues can affect you. Fortunately, with corrective work that improves your joint alignment, you can ease the tension that is responsible for your discomfort and grow comfortable with better bite movement.
Planning Corrective Work To Ease Jaw Tension And Pain
Through treatment to address TMJ disorder, we can help you put a stop to problems with aches and pains that interfere with you on a daily basis. A custom oral appliance can actually help change the way you hold your jaw in its resting position, which can lead to less tension and more uniform alignment. With this correction made, you can feel a welcome reduction in pain as well as joint stiffness, and you can have fewer issues with movement limitations!
Can Dental Work Improve Your Bite Function?
Until you treat dental problems, you may have a tough time maintaining an even bite function. Through work to restore vulnerable teeth with custom crowns, we can provide better support and improve your capacity for balanced biting and chewing. Because these restorations can imitate healthy enamel, this work can have a positive effect on your appearance as well as your oral health!
