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.

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.

About Us
What happens if TMJ is left untreated?

Left untreated, TMJ symptoms may continue to worsen until treatment is sought out. Symptoms often include:

  • Headaches or migraines
  • Damage of the jaw joint
  • Worn or cracked teeth
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Jaw clicking
  • Sore jaw muscles

Occasionally, symptoms can resolve on their own, but this is not always the case.

Where does TMJ come from?

There are several genetic and environmental factors that can contribute to a person getting TMJ. A few include clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth (bruxism), genetic inheritance, and even poor posture. When you visit Savannah Smiles Dental for TMJ treatments in Schertz, TX, we can often determine the root cause.

Is TMJ therapy long-lasting?

The efficacy of TMJ therapy varies from person to person and depends on the underlying cause of the disorder. While some people find long-term relief from a single course of treatment, others may need ongoing care or lifestyle adjustments to manage symptoms effectively.
