If you are suffering from pain or discomfort near your ear or jaw muscles, you may be experiencing complications with your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). You also may experience a “clicking” sound or feeling when opening your jaw. These are signs of temporomandibular disorder (TMD) and can be treated by visiting our office. One of our doctors will examine your jaw and figure out the best treatment for you based on your needs. At-home treatments include changing to a softer diet, applying cold or heat, taking inflammatory medication, and engaging in gentle stretches.
In-House TMD Treatment Options:
- Dental Restorations (i.e. bridge work)
- Cortisone injections
- Flushing of the joint
If you are experiencing any complications with your jaw, contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
