The doctor was fast and efficient when taking out your molars. He does take in consideration how you feeling to proceed with the rest of your teeth. The doctor’s assistant was good too. He let me hold his arm when I was scared so he comforted me (which it was a nice thing and much needed to calm my nerves). They did a wonderful job. I would definitely recommend them.

The particular dentist I had was beyond great the best dentistry I’ve ever had hands-down she was very informative as I’m scared of needles her techniques and styles of performing her work was very soothing and she was very mindful about the way I am with needles for work was quick efficient. An excellent sweetie. I really recommend her for any services.

Finding Relief: Understanding and Treating TMJ Disorders at Westchester Smile Design

If you have ever experienced jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds when opening your mouth, or even headaches, you may be suffering from a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. The temporomandibular joint is the hinge that connects your jaw to your skull and is responsible for the movement of your jaw when you speak, chew, or yawn. A TMJ disorder can be incredibly uncomfortable and can even affect your quality of life.

At Westchester Smile Design, we understand how disruptive TMJ disorders can be, and we offer several treatment options to help alleviate your symptoms and get you back to feeling your best.

What Are the Symptoms of TMJ Disorders?

The symptoms of a TMJ disorder can vary from person to person, but common signs include:

  • Pain or tenderness in the jaw
  • Clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing the mouth
  • Limited range of motion or locking of the jaw
  • Headaches or earaches
  • Difficulty chewing or discomfort while eating
  • A feeling of tiredness or fatigue in the jaw muscles
  • Swelling on the side of the face

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to seek treatment from a qualified dental professional to prevent further damage and discomfort.

What Causes TMJ Disorders?

TMJ disorders can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Teeth grinding or clenching (bruxism)
  • Arthritis or other joint disorders
  • Trauma or injury to the jaw or neck
  • Poor alignment of teeth or jaw
  • Stress or anxiety, which can lead to clenching or grinding

At Westchester Smile Design, we will perform a thorough evaluation to determine the underlying cause of your TMJ disorder, which will help us determine the best course of treatment.

How Can Westchester Smile Design Help?

At Westchester Smile Design, we offer several treatment options for TMJ disorders, including:

  • Oral appliances: We can fit you with a custom-made oral appliance, similar to a mouthguard, that will help reposition your jaw and alleviate your symptoms.
  • Botox injections: In some cases, Botox injections can be effective in reducing muscle tension in the jaw, which can relieve pain and discomfort.
  • Orthodontic treatment: If poor alignment of teeth or jaw is the underlying cause of your TMJ disorder, we may recommend orthodontic treatment to correct the issue.
  • Lifestyle modifications: We can work with you to identify and address lifestyle factors that may be contributing to your TMJ disorder, such as stress or poor posture.

If you are experiencing symptoms of a TMJ disorder, do not suffer in silence. Contact Westchester Smile Design today to schedule an evaluation and learn about your treatment options. Relief is just a phone call away.
