Brandon, FL TMJ Treatment
If you've been living with persistent jaw pain, ear pain, or headaches, you could have “TMJ” – Temporomandibular Joint Disorder. The temporomandibular joint connects the jaw to the base of the skull is what we use daily to be able to talk, chew, or even yawn. TMJ can often be traced back to an improper bite, misaligned jaw joints, or a traumatic injury to the jaw or face.

What we can do:
TMJ treatment from a Brandon, FL dentist can relieve this discomfort. Although the TMJ treatment varies from patient to patient, it typically involves one or several procedures, including the use of an orthotic splint, enamel reshaping, dental crowns, dental braces, or night guards. The goal of TMJ treatment is to stabilize your bite so that your teeth, jaw muscles, and jaw joints work properly together without strain – and better yet without pain!
