TMJ IN DELRAY BEACH

TMJ treatment in Delray Beach will help you relieve any pain affecting your jaw and face muscles when you suffer Temporomandibular Disorders. 

Stress, teeth grinding, a damaged jaw or arthritis can lead to TMJ Disorders. These disorders produce severe pain in or around the jaw, and many times the strain affects your  face, neck or head. 

 TMJ disorders symptoms include severe pain, a sort of clicking or popping sound around your ears, and a bite that seems not to be working well. TMJ Disorders do not allow you to eat, chew or even talk normally.  

Our doctors are experienced in providing TMJ diagnosis and treatment in order to alleviate your pain and bring your jaw, bite and teeth back to their natural state.

WHY SHOULD YOU GET TMJ TREATMENT IN DELRAY BEACH

Benefits of treating your TMJ disorder

Dr. Goetz and his team will first perform a comprehensive check-up to determine the conditions of your mouth and the source of your pain. The Benefits of TMJ treatments at Ocean Breeze Prosthodontics Delray Beach are many. Mainly, getting specialized TMJ treatment will:

Alleviate your pain

Relaxation therapies and bite guards will help you reduce the pain if you suffer TMJ Disorders

Help you avoid teeth clenching

If your TMJ treatment plan includes bite guards and splints you will improve the oral health of your mouth by avoiding teeth clenching or grinding.

Give back the function of your teeth and jaw

When you are in pain due to TMJ Disorders you can’t move your jaw in the usual way. Treatments will help you get back the normal function of your jaw.

Help improve your bite and jaw motion

TMJ treatments focus on helping your jawbone rotate and move in its natural way, improving your bite.

Provide you with bite guards (or muscle relaxers) to help you reduce the strain

Using the bite guard regularly and following the doctor’s instructions will help you do away with the symptoms of TMJ.

Normal function of your mouth

TMJ treatments will help your mouth and jaw work as normal as possible.

WHAT'S INVOLVED WITH TMJ SYNDROME

TMJ Procedure

TMJ DIAGNOSIS

TMJ treatment starts with a thorough examination of your mouth. On your first appointment, our doctors will start the diagnosis.

This procedure involves:

  • History taking: this involves a couple of questions about your medical history and your current symptoms.
  • Visual Examination: this is key to establish the source of your pain.
  • Joint Examination: it involves a series of exercises and movements to check the movement of your jaw and joints.

Two diagnostic tools, the low-cost deprogrammer and the t-skan are used in TMJ treatments. The deprogrammer helps the patient avoid teeth clenching and reduces the strain. The tek-scan is a digital system used to measure the pressure of your bite.

TMJ SOLUTIONS

As in almost all the cases, TMJ pain has its origins in muscle-related problems. Treatments vary according to each particular case, but typically when the disorder is connected to muscles, TMJ treatments involve:

-bite splints and bite guards

-bite adjustments

-muscle relaxers

-physical therapy

Very few cases of TMJ Disorders are related to intra-articular pain. If this is the case, therapy options may become more complex and include surgical treatments. 

If you start feeling pain in or around your jaw, do not wait long to get a mouth check-up. Treatments are very effective if TMJ Disorder is treated promptly.
