TMJ Therapy in Fayetteville, GA

Joint issues are especially difficult disorders to treat in the medical field, and they are made even more complicated when dealing with muscles and joints in an individual’s jaw. For those who suffer from temporomandibular disorders (TMD), these ailments can be a detriment to a person’s quality of life and can make everyday activities a painful experience. These disorders occur as a result of issues in the muscles and the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which cause them to work incorrectly. The joint itself is comprised of myriad blood vessels, nerves, bones and muscles, which if they aren’t working in harmony, could lead to a variety of TMD disorders that our dentists in Fayetteville have the tools and experience to treat.

Individuals with TMD can encounter a variety of issues that relate to the TMJ, which could cause a wide range of potential health problems. These disorders have been known to cause head and neck pain, jaw clicking or locking, facial and ear pain and bite issues that directly relate to the function of the joint. The TMJ works with two major movements: the hinge action of the joint which controls the opening and closing of the mouth, as well as a gliding action that allows the mouth to open wider. If any of these underlying bones or tissues are working improperly, everyday actions like chewing, talking or yawning could result in chronic pain.

For those who wish to visit with dentists in Fayetteville to pursue TMJ therapy, there are a variety of options available to them. To start, most dentists recommend using warm compresses, pain medication and muscle stretching and relaxation exercises to heal the TMJ over time. Additionally, dentists may also consider a splint or bite plate that can be worn at night to prevent teeth grinding and clenching that could be contributing to TMJ issues.

Last but not least, if these initial TMJ therapy techniques are not feasible, there are more invasive procedures, such as washing out the TMJ joint with a cleansing solution, as well as cortisone injections. Additionally, jaw implant surgery can be looked at as a last resort for those with advanced TMJ disorders, but only after all other treatment options have been exhausted. Thankfully, there are a variety of TMJ Therapy options available to patients seeking out dentists in Fayetteville to help eliminate chronic pain from their daily lives.
