If you are suffering from problems associated with your jaw joints, you are probably not at a complete loss as to why it’s happening. TMJ disorder, which occurs when jaw joint health is not at its best, will lead to symptoms like headaches, ringing in the ears, facial pain, jaw pain, and more. So, you have some idea that your jaw joints require help but that doesn’t mean you know how to approach the issue. Is it treatable, you wonder? The good news is that our TruDenta system can help get to the bottom of things and treat the issue. Learn more.
First things first, you will come in for a TruDenta evaluation. Instead of just listening to your concerns and saying, “Yep! That sounds like TMJ disorder!” we will thoroughly scan your smile and jaw joints with something called digital T-scan technology. It will allow use to gain a thorough and detailed understanding of the way your teeth are touching, the pressure they create, and what’s going on with the balance of your bite (or lack thereof) that’s causing your problems.
Did you know that some or most of your problems associated with your TMJ disorder are occurring because the pressure of your teeth against one another is not even? When certain teeth are carrying a heavier load, it can throw off your bite and negatively impact your jaw joints. Thanks to TruDenta, we can craft a custom oral appliance (mouthguard) for you to wear that will correct these issues by relieving the tension on your TMJs.
