TMJ Pain Relief
If you frequently suffer from severe chronic headaches, intermittent ringing in your ears, or even jaw discomfort, you may have TMJ Disorder (temporomandibular joint disorder). TMJ is often characterized by a tender, tingling, or sore jaw. It can also make your jaw pop, grate, or click when you open and close it.
Causes of TMJ Disorder
TMJ often happens when your jaw shifts out of alignment. This can contribute to the overuse or misuse of your temporomandibular joints (TMJ). Your temporomandibular joints are the joints that connect your skull and your jawbone. There are many different reasons a person might suffer from TMJ pain, including the following:
If you often grind your teeth, it can cause TMD. Teeth grinding usually occurs during sleep, resulting in overuse of the TMJ and tooth erosion. If left untreated, tooth grinding can cause serious dental problems. At Beveridge Dental, we offer a special bite guard that can help prevent patients from grinding their teeth at night.
I had an overall great experience! Dr. Erin Beveridge and the rest of the staff are very professional and genuinely care about your experience. I highly recommend Beveridge Dental to anyone who is looking for the best in oral health.
If you have injured your jaw, it can cause TMD. At our South San Jose dentist office, Dr. Beveridge can provide treatment to relieve your symptoms.
If you have a misaligned jaw or bad bite, it can cause TMJ disorder. Dr. Beveridge can help treat a bad bite by realigning or adjusting your teeth.
Importance of TMJ Treatment
TMD can seriously interfere with your everyday life. Its painful symptoms can hinder your physical comfort. If you think you may have TMJ disorder, we can help alleviate your symptoms.
