What Is the Temporomandibular Joint?

Treating TMJ and jaw pain in Bellflower is easier when you understand the disorder

In order to get TMJ relief it is important that you understand the basics of your disorder and the treatment. The Temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects your jaw to your skull, which allows you to move it around freely. However, if you have TMJ you are unable to do so, and instead feel a pain in your jaw while experiencing popping, clicking or even locking of the joint. There are several different TMJ causes that may be attributing to your pain, such as the alignment of your teeth. If teeth alignment is the case, we have a few options for treatment to help get your teeth aligned to relieve your TMJ pain, like Invisalign. We can also provide Botox injections for relaxing your jaw muscles, nighttime appliances and corrective jaw surgery for treating TMJ in Bellflower.
It is also important to recognize some things you can do on your own to help eliminate the pain temporarily. Those who suffer with TMJ disorder often clench or grind the teeth together, which can make your disorder worse. You can take over the counter pain medications such as aspirin or Tylenol to help with the pain, or you can apply a heating pad to the area and eat a soft food diet. Each TMJ case is different, so it takes proper examination by a professional to find the cause of your pain, and also suggest the correct mode of treatment. If you are having trouble with jaw pain in Bellflower, please give us a call at (323) 486-6579, so we can get your TMJ treatment started as soon as possible.
