TMJ Therapy to Relieve Jaw Pain

The small hinges that allow your lower jaw to move are actually called the TMJ, or temporomandibular joint. Like other joints in the body, it can sometimes develop problems due to stress, strain, arthritis, or even a misaligned bite. As a result, a person can develop symptoms such as a stiff and painful jaw, chronic migraine headaches, and neck/shoulder pain.

Dr. Sadeghi will examine your TMJ at every regular checkup, but should you experience these kinds of problems between appointments, you can always give him a call for help. He’s able to provide a multitude of treatments that have been proven to provide relief from TMJ-related pain. This could involve doing stretches throughout the day to relax the face, slightly reshaping a few teeth to realign the bite, or having a patient wear a therapeutic mouthpiece to bed each night.

In any case, Royal Dental can help you should you ever experience any kind of persistent jaw/head pain. If you believe that you may be having problems with your TMJ, contact us today.
