TMJ can be accompanied by a strange joint chewing motion that might be seen in young children. Occasionally, adults will also have the same condition and mask the visible symptoms with chewing gum. At Lifetime Dental PLLC
, we understand that each patient is different and should be treated based on the severity of their condition. TMJ can be the cause of debilitating headaches and affect the mood of a person.
Temporomandibular Joint disorder is a chronic disorder and should be treated as soon as it has been accurately diagnosed. It is possible to treat TMJ with a mouth guard that places your joint in the correct position; this also helps prevent severe bone injuries over time. Lifetime Dental PLLC will design and build a custom mouth guard at our office, and normally in one visit.
