What Is TMJ Therapy?
The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is the spot where your jaw connects to your skull, enabling you to open your jaw smoothly. Sometimes the TMJ is damaged or injured, causing a painful condition known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction or disorder (TMD). If you are having pain or hearing clicking noises whenever you open your jaw, schedule a consultation with Dr. Cassandra Montemayor to see if you have TMD. At Savannah Smiles Dental, we utilize advanced equipment to diagnose and treat your TMD to alleviate symptoms. Your TMJ therapy will be based on the cause of your TMD and your specific condition. Call our Schertz, TX office today to learn about treatment options for TMJ.
How Does TMJ Therapy Work?
To help diagnose TMD, Dr. Montemayor will carefully listen to your concerns before conducting a physical exam. Throughout the examination, she will evaluate how your jaw moves and search for indications of teeth grinding, clenching, and misalignment. She will also feel the jaw and lower face for any tenderness and inflammation. Dr. Montemayor might want to have digital images of your lower face along with a bite analysis to look for underlying causes to help determine your treatment approach. Based on the exam, she will go over your customized treatment choices for TMJ therapy, which may include a mouth guard, orthodontics, or restorative dentistry.
