Working With Your Orthodontist To Address TMJ Dysfunction

Every day you deal with TMJ dysfunction can be marked by discomfort. The problem can stem from several different sources. You may have problems with your jaw alignment because of a flawed bite (a problem often linked to crooked teeth). You might have this pain as the result of stress, especially if you tend to grind your teeth. Others will endure it because of arthritis in their jaw joints, or because of an injury. If you suspect that you are dealing with TMJ-related pain, your orthodontist can help. Advanced digital imaging can be used to examine your jaw, and a special appliance crafted specifically for you can be supplied, which can help correct your alignment woes.

How TMJ Dysfunction Can Cause Problems In Your Daily Life

People who experience TMJ dysfunction are often dogged by frequent pains. One way this pain can be expressed is through regular headaches. You might also have trouble moving your jaw comfortably. Patients can also point to pain in their face, or in their jaw.

Straighter Teeth Can Have Positive Oral Health Consequences

One way people respond to ongoing TMJ issues is by correcting their improper bite. An orthodontic treatment can help your oral health in ways you may not expect. On top of making biting and chewing easier, you can find that straightening your teeth also help you prevent problems like tooth decay and gum disease. If you are upset by the idea of orthodontic work’s effect on your appearance, cosmetic orthodontics can help provide a more discreet adjustment.
