The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge that connects your jawbone to your skull. If you have persistent jaw pain, this may be a sign that there’s something wrong with the TMJ.
Our Grand Rapids dentists will be able to help you find TMJ relief to improve quality of life and avoid complications to oral health.
If you recognize any TMJ symptoms, schedule an appointment with our office as soon as possible. During your appointment, one of our dentists will examine and feel along your jaw for abnormalities. We’ll also ask you to open and close your mouth so we can examine your bite and listen for clicking sounds that would indicate a TMJ disorder.
TMJ symptoms include:
Many of our patients find relief with a TMJ mouth guard, which helps hold the jaw in place while you sleep. Some TMJ disorders are caused by grinding teeth at night, which exerts pressure on your jaw and TMJ.
Surgery is a last resort if other TMJ pain treatment hasn’t worked. Depending on your unique circumstances, we may refer you to a TMJ specialist.
To schedule your appointment with one of our Grand Rapids TMJ dentists, call Contemporary Family Dental at (616) 209-3969, or contact us online.
