TMJ & TMD Treatment
Do you suffer from tension headaches in the morning? Is your jaw or teeth sore upon waking? You may be a candidate for TMD treatment. Marietta Smiles is pleased to offer safe and highly effective general dentistry treatment options for patients who suffer from painful TMJ symptoms. We have a team of skilled dental professionals who carry deep experience in neuromuscular dentistry. We understand the intricate workings of the bones, nerves and muscles that are impacted by your bite and jaw movement.
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders refer to a cluster of complex problems of the jaw joint. Patients who have TMJ disorders often experience tension headaches, jaw pain, ear pain, dizziness, ringing in the ears and occasionally neck and shoulder pains. TMD can have a profound impact on a person's quality of life and can eventually pose a threat to your health if not treated properly. Nighttime bruxism (teeth grinding) is also commonly associated with TMJ disorders. Therefore, it is necessary to seek professional help so that the longevity of your smile is protected.
