Orinda Dental Care: Your Solution to TMJ Pain

TMJ, short for temporomandibular joint, disorders can be quite troublesome, causing discomfort and pain in the jaw area. At Orinda Dental Care, we offer a comprehensive range of treatments to alleviate these issues and enhance your overall oral well-being.

The temporomandibular joint plays a crucial role as it connects the jawbone to the skull, facilitating essential functions like chewing, speaking, and opening and closing the mouth.

However, when this joint becomes inflamed or damaged, various distressing symptoms may emerge, including:

  1. Jaw pain or stiffness
  2. Ear pain or ringing in the ears
  3. Headaches or migraines
  4. Facial pain or swelling
  5. Clicking or popping sounds in the jaw

At Orinda Dental Care, we recognize that TMJ disorders can vary in severity and origin. Therefore, we offer a diverse array of treatment options, ensuring that you receive personalized care tailored to your unique needs. Our treatments include:

  1. Oral Appliances: These are custom-made mouth guards or splints designed to alleviate TMJ pressure and prevent teeth clenching or grinding.
  2. Physical Therapy: Our comprehensive physical therapy program includes exercises aimed at strengthening the muscles surrounding the TMJ and enhancing jaw mobility.
  3. Medications: We offer a range of medications, including pain relievers, anti-inflammatory drugs, and muscle relaxants, to ease TMJ discomfort effectively.
  4. Botox® Treatments: In addition to traditional approaches, we are pleased to offer Botox ® treatments, which can help reduce inflammation and relieve TMJ-related pain.
  5. Surgery: While surgery is rarely necessary, in some cases, it might be the best option to repair or replace the TMJ joint.

If you're experiencing symptoms of TMJ, it's crucial to seek treatment promptly to prevent the condition from worsening. Our dedicated team of dental professionals at Orinda Dental Care is committed to helping you find the ideal TMJ treatment to alleviate your symptoms and enhance your overall oral health.
