Does Your Jaw Hurt? TMJ Treatment Options

For many, jaw pain and/or clicking and clenching is more than just annoying. It can be very painful, causing sleep issues and headaches and it can even impact everyday life.

However, there are treatment options for TMJ that can ease pain and help reduce symptoms. Read on for more.

What to do about TMJ

TMJ can be caused by temporomandibular joint disorder or bruxism (teeth grinding). This can occur during times of stress, at night during sleep or out of the blue for no reason at all. TMJ can cause jaw tension and clicking, pain in the ears, jaw and face, tension in your shoulders and neck and even painful headaches and migraines. Needless to say, TMJ is no walk in the park.

People who suffer with TMJ often are not aware of what to do for it and thus, continue to suffer with the symptoms. However, Dr. Milan is skilled and experienced in diagnosing and treating TMJ in his patients.

TMJ issues can not only be painful, but in serious cases, it can cause chipping and wearing of teeth, tooth sensitivity and even tooth loss. This is why it is vital to see Dr. Milan if you are experiencing TMJ.

Sometimes, the culprit of TMJ is misaligned teeth. In this case, Dr. Milan offers Invisalign Clear Aligners to straighten the teeth. Other times, a custom bite plate is the solution to halt upper teeth from grinding lower teeth. And in other cases, a maxillofacial surgical process may be necessary.

A consultation with Birmingham Center for Cosmetic Dentistry can determine which course of treatment will be most effective for treating you.
