What is TMJ Disorder?

Collins Dental - Experience You Can Trust

Do you suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder? Are you constantly feeling pain in the joints around your jaw? If so, you may need TMJ treatment, and you can benefit by calling us at (407) 915-3646.

TMJ is the hinge connecting your skull's temporal bones to your jaw. This is the hinge that allows movement in your jaw; essential in your ability to eat, speak, and yawn. Disorders pertaining to the TMJ often occur when an individual grinds or clenches their teeth, or there is arthritis in the joint. Stress and movement of the soft cushion can also be causes.

How Can I Fix My TMJ disorder?

There are multiple treatments available to individuals with a TMJ disorder. While some try to remedy the situation on their own by using pain relievers, ice, or other home methods, it's important to seek the attention of a dentist who can provide longer, more permanent remedies. At Collins Dental, we will work with you to understand the severity of your TMJ disorder and determine a treatment option that will best fit your needs.

Our Winter Springs dentists can accurately determine the source of the pain and may suggest balancing your bite, using specific therapies, or if the disorder is severe, surgery (only if absolutely necessary). We are committed to providing our patients with the utmost care and world-class service as we help remedy your TMJ disorder. If you feel you have an issue with your TMJ, come into our office as soon as possible so we can help prevent the pain from worsening.
