There are many possible causes of jaw pain. One of them is a TMJ disorder (TMD). When your temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, becomes irritated and/or inflamed, you can get a painful jaw and other unpleasant symptoms. Fortunately, you can get TMJ relief at our Rochester, MN dentist office.
Our dentists can treat a TMD with a splint or nightguard. These will gently shift your jaw into a position that relieves tension and also prevents you from grinding teeth, which can contribute to TMJ pain. For more stubborn cases of TMJ disorder, we may need to alter your bite using crowns or other dental restorations.
Take our quiz to see if you may need TMJ relief. Then call Lakeside Dentistry at 507-316-6444 to schedule a TMJ assessment.
