Spotlight on TMJ

TMJ syndrome is a relatively common disorder that affects the muscles and nerves in and around the joint in the jaw. Patients experiencing discomfort with their TMJ may not even recognize the source of their pain, much less that there are treatment options available for TMJ near Middletown or Walden.

Since TMJ disorders can have a variety of causes, it’s best to visit your dental office for evaluation. A skilled dentist will take factors such as your lifestyle, anatomy, and risk factors into consideration to try to determine what’s causing your discomfort. After the likely cause has been identified, your dentist will offer you a treatment plan. This can range from wearing a nightguard when sleeping to undergoing surgery in the most severe cases.

Since the treatment for TMJ depends on the cause, it’s important not to attempt to self-diagnose and treat. You could end up doing more harm than good and creating more problems for yourself. If you have pain, popping or clicking in the jaw, facial swelling, or any other symptoms of TMJ syndrome, schedule an appointment at your dentist’s office for assessment.
