Symptoms Of TMJ Disorder
The TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is just a fancy term for where your upper and lower jaw connect. Because the symptoms of TMJ disorder can also be caused by other issues, you will need to see a dental professional like Longmont, CO dentist Dr. Wallin for a proper diagnosis and TMJ treatment.
That said, if you are experiencing any of these issues, you may have TMJ disorder:
- Headaches or migraines
- Pressure in your face
- Clicking or popping sounds when you open and close your mouth
- Tenderness or soreness in jaw muscles
- A jaw that locks up
After a thorough examination, Dr. Wallin will provide a custom nightguard for your TMJ treatment.
Headache And Migraine Solutions From Silver Leaf Dentistry
Even if you do not have full-on TMJ disorder, Dr. Wallin can help relieve your pain. To prevent tooth grinding and clenching, a frequent contributor to headaches and migraines, he will recommend a custom nightguard.
Breathe Better With Custom Snoring Appliances
Another issue that Dr. Wallin can help remedy is chronic snoring. Thanks to a custom snoring appliance that slightly shifts your jaw position, you’ll be able to sleep comfortably (and quietly) through the night.
