TMJ TREATMENT

HOUSTON FAMILY DENTIST TREATS JAW PAIN

Located on both sides of your face where the lower jaw connects to the skull, the TMJ, or tempromandibular joint, assist in the natural opening, closing, and gliding movements of the jaw. Disorders of the TMJs will generally show in symptoms ranging from jaw, neck, and ear pain, headaches, migraines, jaw popping, jaw clicking, jaw noises, problems opening and closing the mouth properly, and ringing in the ears. The causes of TMD disorders include trauma, bruxism, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

How Can Dr. Gennero Treat My TMJ Disorder?

Trained at the prestigious L.D. Pankey Institute in diagnosing and treating TMJ disorders, Dr. Deborah Gennero believes that only treating the symptoms of TMJ disorders is not enough. When she develops your individualized treatment plan, Dr. Gennero takes several factors into account, including the severity, causes, and specific symptoms of your particular TMJ disorder. Treatment plans can include a number of solutions including muscles stretching, relaxation techniques, the use of mouth guards, bite guards(link to bite guard bruxism)and NTI-tss therapy.

How Can TMJ Treatments Improve My Health?

Untreated TMJ disorders never just go away. Even if you do not experience any pain or discomfort now, you will likely suffer from moderate to severe jaw, face, and neck pain in the future. Furthermore, TMJ disorders are considered by many professionals to be the first step in developing osteoarthritis of the jaw, a condition that will cause a gradual breakdown of the joints. Treating TMJ disorders can help to eliminate the discomfort you’ve been living with, allowing you to return to normal activities such as eating, yawning, and speaking without pain. Treatment can also help you avoid deterioration of the jaw joints.
