TMJ TREATMENT

Do you suffer from TMJ?

Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders, or TMJ, are conditions that cause pain and problems in the jaw joint and muscles that control your jaw movement. When you have TMJ, you may suffer from constant pain and jaw issues. TMJ can develop when you grind your teeth, and our dentists at Stone Dental Group – SE Chicago Dentistry can help prevent further damage. If it is left untreated, TMJ can permanently harm your gums, teeth, and jawbone structure.

Symptoms of TMJ can include the following:

  • Frequent headaches
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Neck aches
  • Misaligned jaw joints
  • Dislocated jaw
  • Clicking or popping noise when you open and close your mouth

Depending on the severity of your case and your desired outcome, there are various types of treatments for TMJ such as taking muscle relaxers, aspirin, or biofeedback. We at Stone Dental Group – SE Chicago Dentistry can also fit you with a small, plastic appliance that must be worn while you are sleeping to prevent you from grinding your teeth.

Please call our office at (773) 880-5080 to discuss your possible TMJ treatment options.
