TMJ Treatment
Russellville, AL

Constant stiffness and pain in the jaws could be a symptom of temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMJ disorder (or TMD).

This condition can create overall physical and mental problems and can leave you feeling lethargic, tired and irritable throughout the day.

When ignored, the symptoms will only worsen, and you will end up spending more time treating the condition.

If you notice that you have a constant nagging pain in your jaw, please schedule a consultation with us at Singing River Dentistry, and find out whether or not you are suffering from TMJ disorder.

Understanding TMJ Disorder/TMD

What is TMJ?

TMJ, or the temporomandibular joint, is the complex joint in our jaw that is responsible for complete motion.

What Causes TMD?

Overuse of these joints can often result in them getting damaged, and in certain situations, the soft tissues get inflamed.

Inflammation is one of the leading causes of TMD, but there are various other reasons that could result in the condition.

Clenching or grinding your teeth, also known as "bruxism," is another common cause of TMJ problems. Bruxism can lead to dental erosion and cracks in your teeth. If you ignore these conditions, some of the functionality of your jaw could be lost.

Who Do I See for My TMJ Treatment?

If you feel that your jaw is constantly bothering you, or if you have a habit of clenching your jaws regularly, then consider consulting our team to learn more about how you can benefit from effective TMJ disorder treatment today.

Why Do I Need TMJ Treatment?

The primary reason TMD needs to be treated is to relieve the aches and pains in your body. A tight jaw often results in neck pain, stiffness in the shoulders, and even upper back pain. Jaw tightness can also create chronic headaches that makes you feel sick throughout the day.

Better Dental Health

The reason it is important to constantly check and make sure that you maintain your dental hygiene and health regularly is because this not only helps to keep your mouth healthy, but it also ensures you can enjoy your favorite food without having to worry about sensitivity or any discomfort that could be caused because of constant grinding.

There are a number of people that suffer from malnutrition, not because they force themselves to eat less, but because they cannot enjoy a full range of food due to the dental condition they are suffering from.

Regular maintenance of TMJ disorder and ensuring you get it treated on time helps to protect the integrity of your teeth and ensures that you will not suffer from tooth loss.
