Are you one of the many Addison TMJ sufferers? If you are affected by Temporomandibular joint or TMJ disorder, you know how the tooth pain and discomfort can impact your life. The Addison Dentist in Addison TX has helped countless grateful cosmetic dentistry patients manage their TMJ disorder.
The Temporomandibular or jaw joint connects the lower jaw bone to the skull. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include jaw and facial pain, headaches, earaches, neck pain and chewing difficulty. TMJ disease is often associated with jaw clicking, locking or clenching, and can cause tooth damage and bone loss.
Many Addison patients first sought a possible TMJ diagnosis after trying unsuccessfully to relieve their frequent headaches. At The Addison Dentist, we have discovered that many people do not realize they have TMJ disorder because it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what is causing the pain. An Addison TMJ specialist can properly diagnose your specific TMJ issues and recommend an effective course of action.
Because a comprehensive treatment plan is most successful, we work hand-in-hand with a network of Addison TMJ specialists including ENT doctors, neurologists and physical therapists. There are many facets to this often misunderstood disorder. If you are suffering from jaw pain, we recommend a consultation with Dr. Rao at The Addison Dentist in Texas.
