TMJ Treatment in Brandon, Riverview, Bloomingdale & Beyond
If your dentist talks about TMJ disorder, they are talking about an issue with one or both temporomandibular joints, the hinge joints on either side of a face that attach your jaw to the temporal bone of the skull. You use these joints every day whenever you speak, chew, sneeze, yawn or laugh. When these joints don’t align properly with the jaw, you will likely suffer stabbing or burning facial pain coming from your trigeminal nerve. That’s when you’ll need TMJ treatment. Damage to your trigeminal nerve can be diagnosed by our emergency dentist after a physically traumatic event. If this is the case, they will prescribe TMJ treatment for you.
If you’re experiencing pain issues, our TMJ dentist at Dental Associates of Florida has a TMJ treatment available and will help your TMJ misalignment. Symptoms might include clicking jaw pain, pain across just one face side, headaches on only one side of the head or even ringing in one or two of your ears.
With the most modern technology available, our emergency dentist and TMJ specialist will determine the precise location and cause of your condition and will advise you about best treatment options accordingly. You will then be able to select from a number of painless treatment methods that our dentist will give you. Those might include:
- Occlusal adjustment reshaping the surface of teeth
- Metal braces
- A removable dental appliance
- Clear braces that are removable
Our dentists are also available for any tooth extraction you might need. Tooth extraction is appropriate for those with a traumatic tooth injury, severe tooth discoloration or decay, an abscessed tooth or stubborn baby or wisdom teeth.
