The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) plays a critical role in helping you speak, eat and move your mouth. While it can handle normal everyday function, it is not designed to withstand the excessive tension or strain that comes with teeth grinding, teeth clenching or other strenuous oral habits. Teeth grinding is the most common culprit for TMJ issues. In some cases, bite misalignment is to blame for TMJ dysfunction, which is also known as TMD. Unfortunately, TMJ symptoms can be very disruptive and influential to your everyday comfort and quality of life. As part of our general dentistry treatments at Elegant Smiles, we are proud to serve the Brookhaven community with the most effective TMJ and TMD treatments available.
Our non-invasive solutions help relieve the following symptoms associated with TMJ disorder:
- Jaw popping or clicking
- Jaw pain
- Jaw stiffness or “locked” jaw
- Tension headaches
- Facial pain or ear pain
- Worn teeth
