TMJ is an abbreviation for the temporomandibular joint, the two joints which connect your jaw. Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) is a common condition that many people experience to some extent. TMD sufferers are often unaware that the cause of their symptoms can be managed or corrected with a small oral appliance or other non-invasive therapies.
What Causes TMJ pain?
TMJ can be triggered by many different things. Patients who experience injury to the jaw or muscles in the head or neck often experience TMJ pain. Other triggers include a misaligned bite, arthritis, or even stress.
The symptoms of TMJ disorders include:
- Jaw pain
- Facial pain
- Grinding and Clenching of Teeth
- Difficulty Swallowing
- Limited Range of Motion
- Clicking or Locking of the Jaw
- Neck, Shoulder or Back Pain
- Earaches or ringing in the ears
The symptoms of TMJ can be debilitating and prevent you from carrying out your daily activities. Dr. Rosenheck is committed to providing relief for our patients who suffer from TMJ pain in Alpharetta, Suwanee, and the surrounding areas. This means both alleviating your existing symptoms and offering long-term solutions that can stop the destructive cycle of TMJ disorder.
TMJ Pain Solutions
At your consultation, Dr. Rosenheck asks you to carefully describe your symptoms and performs a thorough TMJ assessment, including images of your teeth and jaw. He is able to make a definitive diagnosis quickly so that treatment can begin as soon as possible.
If the cause of your TMJ pain is related to a misaligned bite, Dr. Rosenheck can realign balance to alleviate symptoms. Realignment involves adjusting the relationship between how your upper arch of teeth come together with your lower arch and sometimes require dental restorations. Bite realignment is a non-invasive TMJ disorder treatment which Dr. Rosenheck performs successfully for patients who need it.
Relief with an Oral Appliance
A precise impression of your bite is obtained in order to create a customized oral appliance. This device is worn while you sleep to take pressure off the joint and allow the surrounding muscles to relax. Depending on his findings, Dr. Rosenheck will recommend the appropriate appliance and, in some cases, can craft the device right at his office. Our dentist is committed to exceeding expectations when it comes to treating his Suwanee and Alpharetta TMJ patients.
