TMJ Disorder And Daily Discomfort

Living with TMJ disorder can be difficult, as flareups of pain can affect you whenever you bite and chew, it can lead to frequent headaches, and it can generally hurt your quality of life by causing other forms of discomfort. If your daily life has been impacted by this problem, know that our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office can help. After an evaluation to confirm that you are struggling with TMJ problems, we can recommend treatment to improve your joint alignment and help you reduce discomfort. For patients who are having bite difficulties because they have unresolved problems with their oral health, we can offer beneficial treatment options for vulnerable teeth.

Is Jaw Pain A Part Of Your Daily Life?

If pain frequently accompanies your jaw movements, you can find it hard to escape the negative feelings associated with TMJ disorder. There are several reasons why people experience this issue. Its onset can be linked to other oral health problems, an injury to your jaw, or even to problems with arthritis in your joints. The good news is that corrective therapy can help. After evaluating you, we can look into the right solution to help you stop living with aches and pains!

Planning Treatment For Your Issues With TMJ Disorder

A custom oral appliance is capable of reducing tension on a person’s joints and muscles when they have issues with TMJ disorder. Your appliance can gently hold your lower jaw in a more appropriate position, one that can reduce stress and improve alignment. Wearing it at the recommended times can help you improve bite movement and even out poor coordination between the joints.

Better Smile Health Can Help You Maintain An Even, Comfortable Bite

For some patients, relief from TMJ disorder will have to follow treatment for other oral health issues. Fixing poorly aligned teeth can help encourage better bite movements. We can actually help you discreetly fix problems with teeth spacing by offering Invisalign treatment. We can also restore teeth that are unhealthy or too small to contribute to your bite by capping them with custom dental crowns. Our practice has in-office technology that can produce crowns in just one appointment, making your treatment experience a more convenient one.
