What Causes TMJ?
TMJ can be caused by arthritis or jaw injury. In many cases, it is triggered by persistent clenching or grinding of the teeth.
Symptoms of TMJ
The first step is determining whether or not you are suffering from TMJ disorder. The most common TMJ symptoms include:
- Pain or tenderness in the jaw area
- Pain while chewing
- Difficulty chewing
- Uneven biting
- Locking of the jaw
We can help you determine if TMJ is a likely cause of your discomfort, and if TMJ disorder is suspected, X-rays, a CT scan, or an MRI can confirm the diagnosis.
At Sage Dental, we offer a number of TMJ treatment options. Typical options usually include non-surgical treatment or self-managed care. For some patients, medications or a bite guard are effective treatments. In other cases, special appliances or surgery may be required.
If you think you may suffer from TMJ disorder, find a location near you and call us today to schedule an appointment.
