Corrective TMJ Pain Therapy
If your jaw constantly feels stiff or sore, or if you can’t remember the last time you had a headache-free day, Aligned Healing of Denver might be exactly what you need to enjoy lasting relief.
What is Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)
Problems with the temporomandibular joints are common, with millions of Americans affected by temporomandibular disorders. Because so many TMJ-related problems originate from dental causes, our Denver practice offers therapy for TMD and bruxism to help our patients manage their symptoms and control their pain.
TMDs, which are also referred to as craniomandibular dysfunction or craniofacial pain, can wreak havoc on your health, causing:
- Headaches and migraines
- Back pain
- Clenching or grinding teeth
- Facial or throat pain
- Neck pain or stiffness
- Clicking or popping of the jaw
- Tired jaw
- Earaches, congestion, or ringing ears
The Importance of TMD Treatment
You should be happy and healthy and able to live your best life without having to worry about how you will manage your TMJ pain from day to day. For this reason, we choose to offer alignment treatments that can treat your symptoms without permanently altering your jaw or facial structure in any way.
Getting the non-invasive TMD treatment you need is essential not only if you want to get out of pain and live a more comfortable life, but also if you’re going to preserve the health of your smile over the long term. The clenching and teeth grinding associated with TMJ can also cause significant wear and tear to your teeth.
Seeking treatment for your TMD symptoms will help you keep your natural teeth in good shape while also helping you reduce painful headaches and jaw soreness in your everyday life.
Determining the Source of Your TMJ Pain
So what causes a TMD? There are many factors, but the most prominent ones include daily stress, injury, arthritis, and an uneven bite.
Determining the root cause of someone’s problem is the first step to finding a solution, and we do this by examining the bite visually and taking X-rays of the joint.
This enables us to pinpoint the source of someone’s issue so we can then prescribe the ideal treatment.
Starting at your consultation we will develop a personalized solution that works for you.
