TMD & TMJ Treatments in Derry
What Is TMJ?
If you or your child suffers from frequent jaw pain or discomfort, you could be experiencing temporomandibular joint disorder—also known as TMD or TMJ.
This disorder affects over 10 million Americans and can be caused by a variety of reasons, including:
- Jaw injury
- Teeth grinding
- And arthritis
At Haas Dental Associates, we offer a wide array of TMD and TMJ treatment to patients throughout Derry in order to relieve this discomfort. Our skilled dentists will accurately diagnose your issue and provide personalized treatments to improve your oral health.
What Are the Symptoms of TMD/TMJ?
Symptoms of TMD include:
- Headaches, neck aches, or pain around your ear
- Jaw pain, tenderness, or soreness
- Difficulty opening and/or closing your mouth
- Hearing clicking or popping when you move your jaw
How Is TMD/TMJ Treated?
Because the causes of TMD/TMJ vary greatly from patient to patient, it means treatment should vary as well. At Haas Dental Associates, we will perform a detailed consultation to determine the nature and severity of your condition.
While some issues can be solved with treatment as simple as rest and anti-inflammatory medication, others require either a mouth guard, and others still benefit from trigger point therapy or physical therapy. Our experienced dentists will work with you to develop a plan of treatment that is effective and that you are comfortable with.
Personalized Treatments You Can Count On
We understand that TMD or TMJ can severely affect your day-to-day, so we work hard to not just treat the symptoms—instead, we treat the problem at the source, so you can enjoy the ultimate peace of mind. Our office is committed to your absolute safety and comfort and will walk you through your treatment from start to finish.
