TMJ Therapy in Frisco, TX

Treatment For Headaches, Jaw Pain & More

Do you have a stiff or painful jaw that clicks, pops, or locks up when you try to move it? If so, you might be experiencing something called TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorder. The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is the small set of hinges in front of your ears that lets your jaw move fluidly whenever you speak, eat, laugh, or yawn. Like other joints, it can sometimes become injured, strained, or misaligned.

Countless individuals suffer from TMD. Many of them attempt to ignore their discomfort and forego treatment. However, doing that allows the problem to get worse. Professional help from the team at Stonebriar Smile Design can help you find fast relief from your TMD pain with TMJ therapy in Frisco, TX.

Recognizing TMD

TMD often goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed because it can have such a diverse range of symptoms, which include:

  • Jaw pain
  • A clicking or locking sensation in the jaw
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Aching facial pain
  • Pain throughout the body

There are many possible causes of TMD, including facial injury, stress, poor posture, bruxism (teeth grinding), and anatomical defects in the jaw. Surprisingly, injuries to other body parts can also lead to TMD pain. An ankle or knee injury can work its way up the skeletal framework all the way to your TMJ. Because everything in your body is interconnected, what happens far below your TMJ can cause misalignment across your skeletal system. The opposite is also true; a problem with the TMJ may lead to descending pain that affects your neck, shoulders, and more, which is why it’s crucial to address TMD with a professional.

TMJ Treatment

To help you find freedom from TMD and its symptoms, the Stonebriar Smile Design team utilizes neuromuscular dentistry. This discipline addresses your teeth, jaw, neck, and head as one unit. Usually, what affects one will also impact the other. If you exhibit TMD symptoms, our team will carefully determine the root cause of your pain by thoroughly examining your teeth and surrounding structures. Our diligent detective work will allow us to pinpoint why you are suffering, and then we can recommend a TMJ treatment in Frisco that will provide relief.

We will customize a treatment plan to the specifics of your condition because there is no one-size-fits-all approach to relieving TMD pain. In some cases, we provide a night guard to stop bruxism and help the jaw muscles relax. We also offer stem cell therapy to promote healing of the joint and reduce inflammation. Additionally, we may talk to you about things you can do at home to relieve pressure and stress on your TMJ. Whatever treatment we recommend for you, you can be confident that we will have you feeling better soon!

If you suffer from chronic jaw pain or frequent migraine headaches, we can help take away your pain with TMJ therapy. To make an appointment, please contact us today.
