TMJ Therapy Treating Weatherford & Aledo Jaw Pain
Your oral health goes beyond even your teeth and gums. Your jaw is an essential part of your overall function, and if you’re experiencing problems with your TMJ (the small jaw joints), we can offer treatment through TMJ therapy at our Weatherford, TX dental office. Problems with the jaw can lead to chronic headaches, jaw pain, and tooth damage. With TMJ therapy, we can help you avoid these debilitating symptoms of dysfunction and encourage comfort.
We offer non-surgical TMJ therapy using intraoral appliances. One of the things that can trigger TMJ dysfunction is teeth grinding or clenching, and oral appliances can be created to prevent the pressure from grinding and clenching that can cause damage to teeth or the jaw joint. Sometimes, TMJ problems are caused by slight misalignments in the TMJ, and we can create intraoral appliances that reposition the jaw to reduce the strain and encourage proper positioning for improved function.
We can use computerized jaw joint analysis technology. The JVA is a fast, non-invasive method of measuring temporomandibular joint function. Wave signatures are recorded on a computer, which aids in the diagnosis of a variety of TMJ problems. Some of these problems can include perforations of the disc, displaced discs, degenerative joint disease, and tears. Dr. Romack and Dr. Mulkey treat many of these problems here at Cosmetic and Family Dentistry of Weatherford.
If you’re experiencing chronic head, neck, jaw, or shoulder pain, consider a visit to our office to find out if the problem is caused by TMJ dysfunction.
