Treatments of TMJ/TMD
Aurora’s finest TMJ treatment will include a thorough examination from a highly trained TMJ doctor
We are highly trained with TMJ and TMD and Neuromuscular dentistry. We use TENS appliances to relax the jaw muscles in order to determine the correct jaw position for allowing the jaw muscles to function properly. We evaluate every patient for TMJ dysfunction at their regular exam. If there is a problem detected, our main goal will be to arrest it and protect your teeth from further damage, while correcting the underlying bite malocclusion. Your therapy may involve suggesting ways to alleviate your stress. For example, avoiding chewing gum or hard to chew foods, taking smaller bites and alternating between chewing on each side of your mouth. A common application for contending with TMD may involve fitting you with a night guard, which will alleviate stress and stop the grinding and clenching of teeth. Good nutrition and posture will aid in the healing process, as well as sleeping on your side. We will take every opportunity to relieve you of your discomfort and eliminate the TMD pain you are experiencing.
