Reversing TMJ Disorder and Pain

TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) is a real condition that can cause severe pain and discomfort every, single day. Dr. Sheri Love is a Dawson-trained dentist, with the expertise you want when it comes to treating TMD – and that means real, lasting relief from headaches, migraines, jaw pain and all the other chronic discomforts that come with TMD.

Creating a Centric Relationship

The Dawson methodology behind treating TMD follows the idea that “form follows function.” That means to reverse abnormal conditions in the TMJ we must first create a healthy relationship between the teeth and jaws. This “centric” relationship can be achieved through splint therapy as well as orthodontic realignment such as with Invisalign.

When left untreated, TMD can lead to:

  • Permanent damage to the internal structures of the TMJ
  • Abnormal wear patterns of the teeth
  • Premature tooth wear and damage to restorations
  • Headaches
  • Pain in the head, neck, and shoulders
  • Bruxism or clenching

If you’re suffering from TMD, your body is trying to tell you that something is wrong. Why suffer another day? Reversing your TMJ disorder may be as simple as having a comfortable, removable bite splint created by Love Dentistry. Each splint is made of custom-fitted acrylic, which will place your jaws in a proper resting position throughout the day or night. Soon, you’ll begin to see fewer headaches, less fatigue, and decreased muscle pain.

Don’t put your TMD pain off any longer. Schedule your consultation at Love Dentistry at your earliest convenience!
