TMJ Treatment

TMJ Treatment

The terms TMJ and TMD are often used interchangeably, but they aren’t the same thing. The TMJ is the jaw joint, and a TMD is a problem with the joint. The TMJ is a pretty complicated collection of muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, and nerves that enable the jaw to have a wide range of motion, and slight imbalances in the body can cause it to not work properly, leading to long-term discomfort and dysfunction.

Some of the most telling symptoms that someone might have a TMD include:

  • Persistent jaw pain
  • A jaw that pops and clicks all the time
  • A jaw that becomes stuck opening or closing
  • An inability to open or close the mouth completely
  • Chronic headaches and migraines
  • Frequent ear and neck aches
  • Teeth grinding while sleeping

Braces

Metal is still the most popular material for braces. Today’s metal brackets are smaller, smoother, more efficient, and more comfortable than braces of the past. Traditional metal braces use a combination of stainless steel brackets, arch wires, and elastic ties or bands to gently move teeth as prescribed by your orthodontist. Patients have the option of adding elastics, or rubber bands, to their metal braces for a personalized, colorful smile.
