MORE ABOUT TMJ (JAW DISORDERS)

Our Pompano Beach FL dentists at Restorative and Implant Dentistry will perform a thorough examination of your joints and muscles to determine whether or not you have any popping, difficulties with mobility, or tenderness. These muscles connect your lower jaw, your mandible, to your skull. When the joints or muscles become sore or painful, they can cause debilitating headaches, difficulties with speech, and problems chewing. If you are diagnosed with TMJ disorder, your dentist will work closely with you to develop a comprehensive personalized treatment plan that is centered around the major symptoms you are experiencing and the root cause of your TMD.

Causes of TMJ Disorders

  • Injury
  • Jaw Alignment
  • Bruxism
  • Dislocation
  • Arthritis

Oral Treatment for TMJ Disorders

Night guards: Night guards can help you avoid clenching or grinding your teeth while you sleep so that your muscles can experience relief from the extra tension of clenching.

Occlusal splint: An occlusal splint is worn over your teeth like a mouthguard and has the ability to make changes to your bite so that you can experience relief from your TMJ pain. Unlike other types of mouthguards, occlusal splints are made of acrylic.

Anterior Repositioning Appliance: An anterior repositioning appliance is a TMJ treatment that literally moves your jaw in order to relieve the stress put on the muscles and joints.
