TMD Treatment

Effective Relief From Jaw Pain

TMJ Treatment

When joints have too much stress exerted on them, they become unbalanced. The TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is the delicate joint where your jaw meets the skull and is located right below each ear. Facial pain, neck pain, uncomfortable chewing and constant headaches are just a few of the symptoms that can occur when it becomes unbalanced. Once your TMJ is unbalanced, you suffer from TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder).

Here are some common symptoms to look out for if you suspect TMD:

  • Popping or clicking in the jaw
  • Constant headaches or migraines
  • Difficulty chewing or eating
  • Muscle aches in the face, head, neck or back
  • Dizziness
  • Tingling sensations in fingers
  • Pain or discomfort when you first wake up
  • Worn or loose teeth

Dr. Han & Dr. Ahn have incorporated therapy for TMD / TMJ in their McLean area dental practice. They have studied how the chewing system interacts with the body, by completing their specialities: periodontal prosthesis and orthodontics, respectively. By studying your uncomfortable joint, our dentists in McLean can determine if a mouthguard would help, of if you need more extensive therapy.

If a mouthguard is advised for you, this very simple solution will gently guide your jaws into a comfortable position. The stress from unconscious clenching or nighttime grinding will be alleviated, providing comfort to your head, neck and back. If you have a more severe case of TMD / TMJ, Arlington area dentist Dr. Han & Dr. Ahn may recommend full mouth rehabilitation or orthodontics, which can create a comfortable bite and ideal teeth positioning.
