What Is TMJ/TMD?
TMJ refers to the temporomandibular joint, and TMD refers to temporomandibular joint disorders. While they are often used interchangeably, TMD is the proper medical term for the disorder, while TMJ refers to the locations of the pain.
There are a variety of symptoms that can be caused by TMJ/TMD. Some of the more common signs and symptoms of TMJ problems include:
- Teeth clenching or grinding
- Popping or clicking noises in the jaw
- Frequent headaches
- Earache or ringing in the ears
- Trouble or pain opening and/or closing the mouth
- Jaw pain that extends to the neck, face, or head
If you have noticed any of these symptoms, give Monarch Family Dental a call. Dr. Rojas and his team can help you find relief from TMJ/TMD discomfort.
Treatment For TMJ Disorders
We know that jaw pain and other symptoms can be uncomfortable and annoying. That’s why Monarch Family Dental offers a variety of options to treat the pain and symptoms associated with TMD. While the treatment method depends on the individual patient’s case, treatment options include replacing missing teeth, moving or shifting teeth, adjusting the bite, and filling gaps between teeth.
If you have problems with clenching and grinding at night, a custom-fitted mouthguard may be a great solution. In more extreme cases, oral surgery may be the only way to repair the badly damaged joint. But rest assured, no matter which treatment option you choose, you are in the best hands possible at Monarch Family Dental.
