Here at Dentistry of Monroe, we are proud to offer solutions to temporomandibular joint disease (TMD).
TMD causes pain and discomfort in the jaw joint, called the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), and the muscles that move your jaw.
While pain in the jaw or the muscles surrounding the jaw can be common and does not always signal a problem. Jaw pain is usually temporary and goes away without treatment.
Symptoms of TMD:
- Pain in Jaw, Face, and Ear
- Trouble Chewing
- Uncomfortable Bite
- Neck Pain
- Experience Dizziness
Most people try to treat the symptoms at home with pain relievers and ice packs. However, you may need additional help from our dentist. Mouthguards are often used to help. Surgery or implants might be necessary.
If you think you might be suffering from TMD, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (360) 365-5165. We will schedule an appointment so we can discuss your options. We will do everything we can to help you have a beautiful smile without pain!
