Feel & Function Better With Our D’Iberville TMJ Treatment

Two of the smallest yet overworked joints in your body are the temporomandibular joints (TMJs). These joints make it possible to open and close your mouth. You can’t talk, eat, laugh, or sing, without them. If they become inflamed or irritated, you can experience many unpleasant symptoms. The team at Back Bay Family Dentistry can help with D’Iberville TMJ treatment. It will allow you to:

  • Open and close your mouth comfortably again
  • Eat and talk without pain

Find Relief from Headaches & Other Symptoms With TMJ Therapy

You probably don’t think much about your TMJs while you’re going about your everyday life. You will if they begin to hurt though! If you have a TMJ disorder (TMD), many common activities can be painful.

Back Bay Family Dentistry offers two types of TMJ treatment to help you feel better. Your dentist will discuss both options with you, and together you’ll determine which one is right for you. Your options are:

  • Custom TMJ Appliance – You’ll sleep with this appliance resting comfortably in your mouth. It will move your lower jaw slightly forward, relieving tension on your TMJs so they can begin to heal. It also prevents you from grinding your teeth, a problem often found in those who suffer from TMD.
  • Botox® Treatment – We’ll inject Botox into your jaw muscles. This limits their movement and reduces your pain. Treatment takes just a few minutes. You’ll need re-treatment every few months for continued relief.

For effective TMJ treatment in D’Iberville, pay a visit to Back Bay Family Dentistry. Call us today at 228-220-2117 to schedule a consultation. You can also request an appointment online.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment/Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

TMJ treatment has helped many patients once again enjoy everyday activities like talking, eating, and laughing without pain. The key to successful TMJ therapy is finding a treatment method that works best for you. We offer several different ways to treat TMJ pain, including a custom mouthguard, restorations, and Botox®. We’ll determine which one will work best for you. We may refer advanced cases to a specialist.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

There is no standard length for TMJ treatment. It depends on many factors, including the severity of your symptoms. Since a mouthguard not only relieves TMJ pain but also prevents damage to teeth caused by grinding, many patients make it a permanent addition to their bedtime routine.

Is TMJ causing my headaches?

It’s possible, yes. Inflammation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can lead to pain in the surrounding muscles of the head and neck, which can be misinterpreted as migraines. By wearing a mouthguard, you can alleviate the pain caused by TMJ inflammation and potentially experience relief from headaches.

What are the signs of a TMJ disorder?

Signs of a TMJ disorder may include jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds when chewing, difficulty opening the mouth completely, facial pain, headaches, and ear pain or ringing. Some people may also experience neck and shoulder pain or toothaches unrelated to dental problems. Also, your jaw may feel locked or stuck. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to visit our practice for help.
