TMJ symptoms can include headaches, jaw pain, pain when you bite down, pain when you open, sometimes you can even experience clicking in your jaw joint. We have a variety of treatment options for these symptoms.
One of the first things we do when we sit down with you during our appointment is we determine where the actual pain is coming from – is the joint healthy or is the joint unhealthy and leading to your pain? Is it the muscles that are causing you headaches, or is it some other factor? Based on that, we come up with different treatment options – some of them include a bite splint, and sometimes even Botox, depending on exactly where the pain is coming from.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please give us a call because we can definitely help you work through it and figure out what’s best for you!
Better life through better dentistry!
