Do you suffer from severe jaw pain or toothaches due to TMJ? From custom mouthguards to Xeomin treatments, here are a few ways our TMJ specialists help eliminate any pain you may be experiencing from this condition.

Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders, often referred to as ‘TMJ’ are a group of conditions that cause pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement.

TMJ can often be attributed to:

  • Grinding or clenching teeth
  • Stress
  • Arthritis
  • Misalignment of the teeth or jaw
  • Injury to the jaw, head, or neck

 

Failing to seek treatment for TMJ pain can cause many uncomfortable and serious symptoms such as chipped or cracked teeth, stiff jaw muscles, radiating facial pain, and a locked jaw, which is why it’s so important to visit your dentist to discuss your treatment options.

 

Custom Mouthguards and Xeomin Treatment For TMJ Pain

At Dr. Korol Dental Clinic, our holistic dentists are able to provide a number of TMJ treatments, from custom mouthguards to Xeomin therapy, to improve the function of your jaw. During an in-depth consultation, our dentists will advise on the best course of treatment to suit your specific needs.

2 Main Treatments That Can Help Ease Your TMJ Pain

If you’re suffering from any painful symptoms of TMJ, then it’s important to visit your dentist straight away. If left unaddressed, TMJ can lead to more serious health problems such as chronic headaches and malnutrition.

4 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER POSTPONE TMJ TREATMENT

If your dentist does diagnose you with TMJ, then there are a number of treatment options available to help ease your symptoms, including:

 

1. Custom Mouthguards

A custom TMJ mouthguard, also known as a TMJ splint, is made from a rigid acrylic material and it’s designed to help raise the bite and reposition the jaw so that the patient is relieved of any painful symptoms and discomfort.

With regular use of this TMJ mouthguard sufferers will often experience fewer TMJ-related headaches, less clenching, less popping and clicking of the jaw, and less ringing in the ears.

2. Xeomin Therapy

Xeomin therapy is becoming a popular alternative for the treatment of TMJ pain. When your specialist injects the Xeomin into the treatment area, it works to relax the overused jaw muscles so that they are no longer able to produce destructive clenching and grinding forces.

Xeomin therapy has many benefits and can help:

  • Eliminate TMJ-related headaches
  • Reduce jaw tension and TMJ pain
  • Minimize lock jaw in cases of severe stress
  • Reduce jaw soreness

These TMJ treatments are very safe, fast, and effective. As a non-surgical procedure, the Xeomin treatment is administered at the dental office and allows you to return to your daily activities immediately.
