CHICAGO TMJ TREATMENT
Lower Jaw Discomfort
TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, is a common jaw problem that develops from grinding your teeth together. If TMJ is left untreated, it can cause damage to your teeth, gums, and jawbone structure. Additionally, TMJ can make opening and closing your mouth painful, which can make speaking and eating uncomfortable. If you believe you may be suffering from TMJ, allow our dentists at East Erie Dental – SE Chicago Dentistry to provide the proper treatment you need.
These symptoms may indicate you have TMJ:
- Tooth sensitivity
- Neck aches
- Dislocated jaw
- Misaligned joints
- Arthritic condition of jaw joint
There are a variety of treatment options for TMJ depending on the severity of symptoms you have. Mild TMJ discomfort can often be treated with muscle relaxers, aspirin, or biofeedback. In cases where TMJ causes physical discomfort, we can customize a small plastic apparatus that is worn while you sleep.
