Do you experience jaw pain, stiffness, or discomfort? If so, we would like to hear from you! TMJ affects the lives of millions across the nation and can make even the most mundane activities like chewing and speaking seem like a chore. As your Terre Haute TMJ dentist, we are fully equipped to examine your jaws, bite and surrounding musculature in order to diagnose the precise underlying cause of your jaw pain or discomfort. TMJ disorders are very complex and can develop as a result of various underlying issues ranging from arthritis, bruxism (the chronic grinding or clenching of teeth) or dental injury, to a misaligned bite. Depending on the unique circumstances of your jaw-joint conditions, treatment may vary quite widely. In cases of a misaligned bite, an imbalance in bite force can result, placing undue strain on the jaw joints and surrounding muscles. In some cases, simply restoring and/or making a slight occlusal adjustment to the natural teeth to alleviate your symptoms can effectively address this imbalance. When a TMJ disorder is the result of bruxism, treatment may entail wearing a customized night guard during bedtime, to comfortably keep your jaws a safe distance apart throughout the night. Whatever treatment may be indicated, you can depend on us to keep you well-informed, and deliver your care with the gentle and compassionate touch you deserve!
