Two of the smallest yet most overworked joints in your body are the temporomandibular joints, or TMJs. They control the movement of your jaw, allowing you to open and close your mouth, chew your food, laugh, sing, and more. That’s why you may experience a host of unpleasant symptoms when these joints are out of alignment. However, our non-invasive TMJ treatment in Cordova can help you:
- Relax because your jaw feels so much better
- Enjoy life more without constant jaw pain
- Prevent your jaw from popping or locking into place
- Sleep better and get more refreshing rest
If you’re tired of dealing with TMJ pain, visit Arlington Dental soon for a consultation. Call our team today at 901-445-8144 and we’ll get you into the office as soon as possible. We’re conveniently located on Old Dexter Road, not far from the FedEx Employees Credit Association.
Enjoy Your Life More Without TMJ Pain
When your TMJs become inflamed or irritated – for reasons researchers don’t yet fully understand – you can experience a great deal of pain. One of the best ways to treat this pain is by using Botox®. Botox has a wide variety of uses and is often used to conceal wrinkles, lines, and crow’s feet on the face and around the mouth. However, it is also effective at treating TMJ problems.
When injected into the area around the TMJs, it will:
- Help limit the movement of the jaw muscles, which reduces or entirely eliminates your pain
- Take just a few minutes to complete the treatment
- Give you results that can last six months or longer
If you grind your teeth, which is a symptom of TMJ problems as well as a cause of them, we can have a custom mouthguard made that will keep your teeth apart while you sleep. This will stop damage from occurring to your tooth enamel and help you avoid the need for restorative dental work. Since teeth grinding, known as bruxism, is a major cause of headaches, a professionally made mouthguard will also help reduce the frequency and intensity of your headaches.
