Temporomandibular joint dysfunction or TMJ can be the source of annoying oral symptoms you may be experiencing. The temporomandibular joint includes the hinge joints on both sides of the jaw. TMJ symptoms are caused by dysfunctional tendons or cartilage in the jaw joint. Bones and muscles under stress located in this area can also lead to TMJ symptoms. Our family dental practice, in St. Francisville, LA, offers TMJ treatment as part of our general dentistry services.
There are many causes contributing to TMD. Some causes can be arthritis, stress from bruxism, or even tendon issues. Noticing and identifying the symptoms is important.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, it is best to see our Feliciana Dental dentist as soon as possible. Our TMJ treatments begin with a detailed exam. The professionals at Feliciana Dental provide comfortable treatments that offer relief from TMJ pain.
Depending on your unique situation, TMD treatment may include nightguards, teeth restoration, or orthodontic treatment. We will recommend and provide the appropriate treatment process for you or your family member.
