TMJ disorders treatment

TMJ Problems

Our bodies are filled with complex systems. Case in point: the jaw. Most people see it simply as a joint that opens and closes when we speak, yawn, eat, and so on. However, these joints, technically called the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), though they may seem to be simple hinges, are actually a very complex system of tendons, bones, muscles, and nerves. All of these parts are connected to the teeth directly through the jaw bone. The TMJ also works alongside with other musculoskeletal systems in the body including the spine and neck.
TMJ Disorder

When the TMJ are not in proper alignment, usually due to an incorrect bite, you may experience a variety of TMJ Symptoms including:

  • Jawpain
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Neck pain
  • Tinnitus (ringing in your ears)
  • Broken teeth
  • Bruxism
  • Clicking in your jaw
  • and many others.

All of these TMJ symptoms point towards TMJ disorder which sometimes called TMD(Tempero-mandibular disorder) but more often it’s simply referred to as “TMJ”. Some of these symptoms will come and go while others seem to be constant. The good thing is that you can find treatment for TMJ in Bangalore at Celebrity Smiles with a Neuromuscular dentist.

Treatment of TMJ disorders

Throughout the years there have been several approaches taken in treating TMJ. Many times patients are given the option to simply treat the symptoms or, on the other extreme, undergo invasive surgery to re-align the TMJ. Neither of these methods is truly ideal which often times turns patients away from treating TMJ. However, if you live in the Kalyan nagar/Hennur/HSR layout area, or you are willing to travel to our clinic, and you are interested in properly treating TMJ using non-surgical methods, waste no time and contact our consultants. Even though the two commonly practiced treatments seem to be all there is, our Dr can analyze your bite and if the main source of your TMJ disorder is an imbalance in your bite, he will then be able to correct the imbalance and thereby alleviate your TMJ symptoms such as headaches, jaw pain, etc.
