At Gold Hill Dentistry, we can effectively help patients who suffer from chronic jaw pain and soreness due to TMD (temporomandibular disorder). This disorder happens when the jaw and jaw joint are out of alignment. The temporomandibular joint is the hinge joint that connects the lower jaw to the temporal bone of the skull. This is a flexible joint that allows the jaw to move up and down and side to side. These movements allow for eating, talking, and yawning. The muscles that are attached to and surround the jaw joint control the position and movement of the jaw.
When problems with the muscles of the jaw or with the joint itself occur, TMD is often a result. This disorder can cause extreme discomfort when the jaw joint is used. Often, the jaw is damaged from grinding or clenching the teeth. These put an excessive amount of pressure on the temporomandibular joint. At Gold Hill Dentistry, our dentists are highly trained and qualified to treat TMD and relieving chronic pain. With state of the art equipment, we offer the latest in dental technology to deliver long lasting results to our patients.
If you are suffering from TMD, our dentists can help you find relief. Our dental team is dedicated to treat your jaw pain. With treatment options including night guards that are custom fitted for each individual mouth, the pressure on the jaw can be redistributed and take the force off of the jaw. You can trust the dental professionals at Gold Hill Dentistry to give you the care and relief that you need.
