Expert TMJ & TMD Treatments in Riverview, MI

Experiencing discomfort or pain in your jaw can significantly impact your daily life, making essential activities like eating and speaking challenging. At A Dental Center, we specialize in diagnosing and treating Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD) with a patient-focused approach. Our treatments range from simple lifestyle adjustments and dental treatments to custom-fitted oral appliances designed to alleviate your symptoms and restore your jaw’s function.

Our team understands the complexities of TMD/TMJ disorders and employs the latest techniques to offer relief and solutions tailored to your needs. We begin with a thorough evaluation to accurately diagnose your condition, followed by a discussion of the most effective, non-invasive treatment options.

Frequently Asked Questions About TMJ & TMD

Diagnosing TMD involves a thorough examination by a dental professional, who will assess your jaw mobility, listen for sounds, check for pain or tenderness, and possibly order X-rays. We may also use MRI or CT scans to get a detailed view of the joint and its functioning so that we can provide accurate diagnosis and tailored treatment plans.

Treatment options for TMJ/TMD at A Dental Center range from conservative care, like physical therapy and oral splints, to more advanced interventions if necessary. We often start with non-invasive treatments such as stress reduction techniques, muscle relaxants, or mouthguards to prevent teeth grinding. Our goal is to alleviate your symptoms while addressing the root cause of the disorder.

Some cases of TMJ/TMD may improve without professional treatment, especially if they’re caused by temporary stress or minor jaw injury. However, persistent or severe symptoms require professional evaluation and treatment to prevent long-term damage and alleviate pain. It’s important not to ignore ongoing discomfort as it can lead to more serious issues.
