TMJ Treatment Reno
Patients often wonder if their headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, jaw tension, etc. has anything to do with clenching or grinding their teeth, and it does! Most Reno dentists will make an oral appliance without considering the reason (or source) of the pain. Our state-of-the-art 3-D imaging is the key to correctly identifying the root cause of your pain by providing TMJ treatment services. Experts at our Reno dentistry can identify the source of the pain and address it so you don’t have to live your life in discomfort and misery.
Chronic Head, Face, and Neck Pain (Craniofacial Pain)
Everyday, you use your jaw to talk, eat, swallow, and laugh. For those suffering from TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder), any of these activities may cause pain ranging from mild to debilitating. For many, frequent jaw pain caused by TMJ can affect your entire life. TMJ may cause headaches, sleep difficulties, pain while socializing – interrupting your life at the worst moments.
Our team of Reno dentists specializes in diagnosing and treating TMJ. Since TMJ can arise from a past jaw injury, arthritis, or even overuse, we’ll begin by determining the cause of your TMJ. First, we’ll review your medical history and conduct a thorough head and neck evaluation. From this information, we’ll develop a non-surgical treatment plan specifically for your unique case.
We understand the importance of providing you with relief from frequent jaw pain. If you are suffering from TMJ, or think you might be, contact Well Beyond Dental today to schedule an appointment with one of our Reno dentists.
