Enjoy Your Freedom From Jaw Pain

TMJ disorder (TMD) makes it harder to move your jaw due to uneven joint alignment and movement. The tension from this problem can limit your movement and cause pain when you do things like eat, speak, and laugh. We can figure out why you have this problem and provide gentle, non-invasive treatment to make it stop!

How Can I Find Out If I Have TMJ Disorder (TMD)?

The following symptoms point to TMD:

  • Painful or stiff bite movement
  • More frequent headaches
  • Chronic pain in and around your jaw
  • Facial pain
  • Neck and shoulder discomfort

During a general dental checkup, Dr. Grantham uses joint vibration analysis (JVA) to identify problems with your jaw. This will also help us plan long-term treatment to resolve problems.

What Causes TMD?

There are different problems that lead to TMD, including oral health issues like poor teeth spacing and changes to your bite movement. To fully treat you, we can make plans to take on the root causes that affect your jaw.

Do I Really Need Treatment For TMD?

Without treatment, you will keep suffering from facial pain, headaches, and other problems. One big concern is that you will have teeth grinding issues that break your enamel.

Will Treatment For My Jaw Pain Be Uncomfortable?

Better jaw function can call for restorative dental work or orthodontic treatment. We offer convenient and attractive restorative treatments and orthodontic solutions like Invisalign
