TMJ Treatment

Edmond, OK Dentist

Temporomandibular disorder (TMD), or TMJ disorder, can cause terrible headaches and pain in the muscles of your neck or jaw. If your life is being disrupted by TMD pain, come to Redbud Dental for TMJ treatment. We’d love to prevent more pain and give you headache relief.

What Are the Symptoms of TMD?

The temporomandibular joint is the main joint between your jawbone and your skull. If you have a TMD disorder, you might experience:

  • Jaw soreness.
  • Tinnitus or ringing in the ears.
  • Headaches or migraines.
  • Pain when you chew.
  • Pain in the face, neck, and shoulders.
  • Popping or clicking sounds in your jaw.
  • Your jaw being locked.

Why Do I Have TMD?

There are many causes of TMD or TMJ disorder. You use your TMD joint almost constantly throughout each day for eating, yawning, or talking. During any of these activities, the muscles around your TMD can be strained.

TMD disorder can also be caused by:

  • Whiplash.
  • An uneven, misaligned bite.
  • Bad posture.
  • Facial trauma.
  • Grinding or clenching teeth.
  • Neck injuries.
  • Arthritis.
  • Muscle tightness.

How Does Redbud Dental Treat TMD?

We use one of the simplest and most inexpensive TMJ treatment options, which is to fit you for a bite guard. This simple dental appliance will protect your teeth from grinding together.

A mouth guard can give your jaw relief from the constant tension of clenching or grinding. As your muscles recuperate from overuse, your TMD pain should decrease.
