TMJ disorder (TMD) affects the joints on either side of the face that connect the lower jaw to the skull. When the TMJs malfunction, the result is a disorder, which is often diagnosed and treated at a dentist’s office.
Are you battling TMJ dysfunction in Jackson, New Jersey? Don’t live under the bondage of constant headaches and jaw pain. Instead, please schedule an appointment with Aesthetic Dental Creations for TMJ pain management. Our dentist, Dr. Balaji Srinivasan, has high-level training in neuromuscular dentistry to understand the relationship between the jaw muscles, nerves, joints, and other components of the jaw system that must work in harmony to support a healthy, pain-free smile.
Healthy temporomandibular joints (TMJs) help you to move your jaw sideways, up, and down when talking, smiling, eating, etc. When your TMJs are functioning optimally, you barely notice their presence.
Unfortunately, inflammation, injury, or infection can alter the healthy functioning of the TMJs, resulting in numerous unpleasant symptoms.
Every patient is different, so consultations are vital to customize your treatment plan. During your consultation with Dr. Srinivasan, he’ll discuss any past dental injuries, infections, or inflammations. Additionally, he’ll assess your jaw joint’s movement, bite, teeth, and other oral structures to determine the root cause of your TMD.
After a careful diagnosis, the following treatment options may be recommended:
