Appliance Therapy For TMJ Disorder

Is it time for you to worry about the persistent feeling of pain or sensitivity in your jaw? The longer this problem goes on, the more concerned you can feel about what it says about your oral health. You can also find that your pain is worsening, and that it is accompanied by joint stiffness, headaches, and a tendency to grind your teeth. At our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office, we can help you move past your issues by recommending TMJ therapy. With a custom oral appliance, we can ease tension and improve movement by correcting trouble with your joint alignment and movement.

How Worried Should You Be About Jaw Pain And Stiffness?

If you have a persistent problem with jaw pain and stiffness, it can be a real indication that something is wrong, and that you should meet with your dentist to have the issue evaluated. Over time, problems with the alignment and movement of your jaw joints and muscles can lead to mounting stress, and that can build to trouble with stiffness, sensitivity, and even trouble with headaches. You can also have a harder time with teeth grinding and clenching, something that will put your smile at risk. Our practice can confirm that your issues are linked to TMJ disorder. From there, we can recommend that you start treatment via oral appliance therapy to correct your imbalance and improve your quality of life.

Using A Custom Appliance To Resolve Problems With Your Jaw

With a custom oral appliance, we can help you readjust your jaw movement and alignment in order to reduce the stress and strain on both your joints and muscles. The presence of the appliance helps by holding your jaw in a more comfortable position. The reduction in stress can lead to better movement, fewer headaches, and even freedom from related pains in your face, neck, and head!

How Treatment To Restore Teeth Can Improve Your Bite Function

It may be necessary for us to check out your dental health to see if there is something stopping you from maintaining a natural bite movement. If there is, we can advise that you have problem teeth restored with dental crowns. We use technology to produce these restorations in our office, which is how we are able to supply them in as little as one appointment.
