Effective TMJ Treatment | Bohemia Dental Arts

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can cause significant pain and discomfort in the jaw and surrounding areas. At Bohemia Dental Arts, we offer effective TMJ treatment to alleviate your symptoms and improve your quality of life. Our experienced team uses advanced techniques and personalized care to address the underlying causes of TMJ disorders and provide lasting relief.

What is TMJ?
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects the jawbone to the skull and allows for the movement necessary for chewing, speaking, and other functions. TMJ disorders, also known as TMD, can result from various factors, including jaw injury, arthritis, teeth grinding, and stress. These disorders can cause pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and muscles controlling jaw movement.

Signs and Symptoms of TMJ Disorders:

  • Jaw pain or tenderness
  • Clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing the mouth
  • Difficulty chewing or biting
  • Locking of the jaw
  • Earaches or ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Neck and shoulder pain

Our TMJ Treatment Services:
At Bohemia Dental Arts, we offer a range of TMJ treatment options to address your specific needs and provide relief from your symptoms:

Custom Night Guards:
Night guards are custom-made dental appliances that fit over your teeth, providing a protective barrier and preventing teeth grinding (bruxism) that can exacerbate TMJ symptoms. Wearing a night guard can help reduce jaw pain and protect your teeth from damage.

Oral Appliances:
In addition to night guards, we offer other types of oral appliances designed to reposition the jaw and alleviate TMJ symptoms. These appliances help improve the alignment of the jaw and reduce stress on the TMJ.

Physical Therapy:
Physical therapy exercises can help strengthen the jaw muscles, improve range of motion, and reduce TMJ pain. Our team can recommend specific exercises and techniques to help you manage your symptoms.

Depending on the severity of your symptoms, medication may be prescribed to help manage pain and inflammation. This may include over-the-counter pain relievers, anti-inflammatory medications, or muscle relaxants.

Stress Management:
Stress is a common factor contributing to TMJ disorders. We provide guidance on stress management techniques, such as relaxation exercises, to help reduce tension and alleviate TMJ symptoms.
