What is TMJ?

TMJ disorder, or temporomandibular joint disorder, affects the joint connecting your jawbone to your skull. This condition can lead to discomfort, tenderness, and limitations in jaw movement and muscle function. Causes may include stress, teeth grinding, jaw misalignment, or injury.

Recognizing the Signs:

Symptoms of TMJ disorder encompass jaw discomfort or soreness, clicking or popping sensations during mouth movement, chewing difficulties, headaches, earaches, and facial pain. If you’re experiencing any of these indicators, seeking an evaluation and accurate diagnosis from our dental team is essential.

How Do We Treat TMJ in Mesa Clinic?

Our proficient dentists conduct a comprehensive assessment of your jaw joint, bite, and overall oral health to diagnose TMJ disorder. This evaluation may involve dental X-rays and, if necessary, additional tests like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scans to evaluate the condition of your jaw joint and surrounding structures.

Tailored Treatment Approaches:

Treatment for TMJ disorder is personalized based on the severity and underlying cause of your symptoms. Our skilled dentists may recommend conservative approaches such as lifestyle adjustments, stress management techniques, jaw exercises, or the use of a dental splint or mouthguard to alleviate discomfort. In more complex cases, we may suggest orthodontic procedures, dental restorations, or surgical interventions.

If bleeding persists for 20-30 minutes despite applying ice and pressure, it’s crucial to promptly seek professional medical attention. Urgently visit your dentist or head to the emergency room for further evaluation.

Remember, any pain stemming from a mouth or tooth injury constitutes a dental emergency. Don’t hesitate to seek treatment promptly, as swift action significantly enhances the chances of preserving a damaged or injured tooth.
