TMJ Treatment

Do you often suffer from an achy jaw, pain while biting or chewing, persistent earaches or an uncomfortable click associated with mouth movement? You may be suffering from TMJ syndrome. The temporomandibular joint (often shortened to TMJ) is a source of discomfort for the many afflicted with this condition. It occurs when the joint, which connects your lower jaw to the temporal bone beneath your ear, becomes injured or damaged. There is no single cause of TMJ syndrome; it can be the result of a number of causes. Some of these include:

  • Osteoarthritis, or natural wear and tear due to aging
  • Bruxism, or teeth grinding
  • Clenching of the jaw due to nervousness or biting habits such as chewing your fingernails
  • Infection of the joint
  • Trauma to the joint

TMJ syndrome can affect many areas of the body adversely, but luckily Dr. Hall and the team at Hall Family Dentistry have lots of experience treating the disorder and will work closely with you to determine the right plan of action for your specific case. Treatment options commonly include:

  • Avoiding poor oral habits such as biting your nails
  • Moderating pain with warm compresses
  • Certain exercises to strengthen your jaw muscles
  • Medications prescribed by Dr. Hall to control muscle tension and to moderate pain
  • A night guard to prevent teeth grinding at night
  • Surgery to correct an improper bite

If you believe you might be suffering from TMJ disorder or wish to schedule an appointment, give us a call in Indianapolis today at (317)-356–0919 or send us a message to speak with one of our skilled and knowledgeable team members.
