Do you suffer from migraines or headaches? Is your jaw, neck, ear, shoulder or face painful? These symptoms could be a sign that that you have TMJ. Often times, TMJ is caused when an imbalanced bite that places excess strain on the joints and muscles on either side of the jaw. At Lilac Family Dental, our dentists can help alleviate the pain and discomfort association with TMJ/TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder).
We use sophisticated techniques to diagnosis the cause of the disruption to your bite. An occlusal (bite) analysis helps us determine the extent of your bite misalignment and formulate a treatment plan. To support your jaw, our dentists may recommend an occlusal appliance to be worn at night to maintain jaw position.
Optimal bite and jaw position is essential in treating TMD/TMJ conditions. Our dentists carefully analyze the state of your teeth and jaws to formulate a treatment or combination of treatments to provide you with the long-term relief you need and deserve.
