There are different concerns about dental pain that our practice is prepared to help manage. While you can easily anticipate that your Riverside, CA dentist is prepared to help when you have a tooth that is aching or sensitive, it may be a surprise to learn that there is something we can do to help with chronic jaw pain, headaches, and even issues with neck and shoulder discomfort. Trouble with your jaw alignment and movement can lead to TMJ problems that call for help. By providing that help, we can resolve tension and pain that have left you struggling with recurring discomfort. We can also perform a review of your oral health to see if we need to treat any other oral health issues that may make it harder for you to comfortably bite and chew, which can lead to more functional issues.

How Can I Find Out If I Have Issues With TMJ Disorder?

Through an evaluation by your dentist, you can learn if your recent struggles with jaw pain and stiffness, headaches, and other discomforts are being caused by an imbalance in your joints. Confirming that this is the source of your troubles can lead to a discussion on how that trouble can be resolved. Through corrective therapy, we can help you reduce tension and soreness, which can have a positive impact on your quality of life.

Planning Treatment To Improve Your Jaw Alignment And Movement

Treatment in the form of oral appliance therapy for TMJ disorder can help you fix an imbalance in your jaw movement. The appliance will be custom-made to help you rest your lower jaw in a better position to ease the tension on your joints and muscles. Wearing it over time can lead to improvements that take away the problems you have suffered with headaches, troubled movement, and more. We can also look into the need for restorative dental work if you have teeth in poor health that stop you from maintaining a comfortable bite movement.
