Experience Pain Relief With TMJ Treatment in San Antonio

Dr. John Moore is a TMJ (temporomandibular joint) pain specialist. There are many ways for him to treat you and alleviate your symptoms so you can get back to living a pain-free life. Your options may include:

  • Custom splints and mouthguards to realign your jaw. This will allow your muscles to relax while you sleep and protect your teeth from the effects of bruxism (teeth grinding), which sometimes causes TMJ disorder or can be a symptom of it.
  • Occlusal adjustments and orthodontic work to bring your bite into proper alignment. A bad bite can lead to TMJ disorder because your jaw must regularly shift out of position when you chew. This same strain repeated several times a day could be at the root of your TMJ pain.

TMJ Disorder Explained

Open and close your mouth. You will feel motion in your TMJ where your jawbone meets your cheekbone. This joint acts as a hinge every time you speak, chew food, or even yawn.

It’s not uncommon for this joint to become misaligned or irritated, or for you to strain the surrounding muscles. More than 10 million Americans are thought to suffer from TMJ disorder, which can also include debilitating pain from headaches and migraines.

Your pain could be related to your TMJ if:

  • Your jaws, ear, neck, or shoulders ache.
  • You wake up in the morning with headaches or migraines.
  • You’ve been diagnosed with arthritis.
  • You hear clicking or popping noises when you open your mouth.

Don’t let your TMJ disorder drag on. Symptoms can last days, months, or even years. Get the effective TMJ treatment you need at Cosmetic Dental Associates. Call 210-951-4444 today to schedule your consultation. We’re here to help you feel better!
