TMJ Treatment

Anyone who has ever experienced TMJ, or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, knows that it needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. TMJ shows up at the hinge point of your jaw, right in front of each ear. Symptoms include limited ability to open the mouth wide, getting your jaw locked in place, clicking and popping noises when opening mouth or chewing, or teeth that no longer fit together properly.

The cause of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder is not known, but could arise from trauma, injury, dislocation, various forms of arthritis, stress, or grinding and clenching of the teeth. If you have these symptoms, seek out TMJ treatment Encino. Your dental office in Encino, Lasting Dental Impressions, will carefully check your jaw using physical examination and X-rays to determine if you have TMJ Encino.

If you do, then your Encino dentist may recommend a few courses of action.

  • Medications, to reduce swelling.
  • Custom night guard fittings, to keep nighttime teeth grinding to a minimum.
  • Dental treatments that correct the alignment of your teeth, or replace missing teeth.
  • Radio wave therapy or TENS, where radio waves or low level electrical currents are passed along the jaw to relax the muscles.
  • Surgery. This option should only be considered after all other recourses have been exhausted.
TMJ Treatment Encino is easy to find. Lasting Dental Impressions dental office Encino will discuss all options with you, and help you find the right treatment for TMJ Encino. Call today for more information, or to schedule a consultation.
