Save Your Smile by Treating Your TMJ Disorder

There are a variety of reasons that you might be struggling with TMJ problems. If you are dealing with a great deal of stress and tend to grind your teeth, that habit can often affect your TMJs. A TMJ disorder can also be a result of arthritis or injury to the area. Whatever the cause, Dr. Zadeh can help. Your treatment may include:

  • Mouthguard – A customized mouthguard will prevent you from clenching down or grinding your teeth. This reduces the inflammation in your jaw and gives your TMJs the ability to heal.
  • Botox®While this is typically used for cosmetic purposes, it’s also a treatment method for TMJ disorders. It relaxes the muscles in your jaw and offers pain relief.

We’ll do a thorough examination to determine if you have damage that needs our attention. Grinding your teeth can crack, chip, or flatten a tooth. This leads to tooth sensitivity and other dental pain. If not addressed, your tooth may break. Your dentist will discuss what’s necessary to repair your tooth using restoration procedures such as a filling or a dental crown.
