Temporomandibular Joints

Treating TMJ, Eliminating Pain.

We’re With You
Every Step Of The Way.

 

Located in the upper region of the jaw, the Temporomandibular joints (TMJ) connect the skull with the jaw. These joints allow you to perform daily oral functions such as speaking and chewing.

TMJ is one of the major sources of pain and irritation experienced by individuals. If you’re having chewing discomfort, joint lock, tooth pain, neck and shoulder discomfort, and headaches, then you may have a problem affecting the TMJ. In numerous cases, closing or opening the jaw can result in extreme pain.

Your Roseville Dentist is experienced in treating TMJ. Rocky Ridge Family Dental’s team utilizes advanced methods to treat TMJ dysfunction; cold compresses can alleviate pain for a temporary period while a mouth guard can be used to prevent teeth grinding. The TMJ joint can also be repositioned through advanced technology and the skills of our specialists.

In general, your Dentist in Roseville will ensure a result that will eliminate the pain and discomforts of TMJ. After the treatment, you can resume daily activities and get back to enjoying a paint-free lifestyle!
