TMJ & TMD Treatment
Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD), affecting the jaw joint or temporomandibular joint (TMJ), can become present with mild to severe symptoms. The most common symptoms of TMD are discomfort or pain in the jaw joint, a limited range of opening, or a clicking or popping sound during movement. Other symptoms include pain in the facial and neck areas as well as chronic headaches. If our team at Artistic Smiles determines that you have TMD, we implement a treatment in the form of custom-made mouth guards which promote easier synchronized movement of the upper and lower teeth. This treatment relaxes the jaw and prevents you from grinding your teeth, which could irritate TMJ. Contact our Miami, FL, dental clinic today for a consultation!
