We're able to help people with chronic jaw pain because of the training that I've done with the Dawson Academy. And over that two-year period, which was after my residency, I learned a lot about TMJ problems and how those can be precipitated by a bad bite. And so when a patient comes in for a new patient exam, we'll examine those things, we'll diagnose the problem, and we'll treat it appropriately. Oftentimes with splint therapy, there's appropriate types of splints. And we address that part first before we do any kind of orthodontic treatment.
At Richter Orthodontics, we can provide effective solutions for TMJ disorder and teeth grinding that will:
- Protect your teeth from damage and wear
- Relieve pain in your head, jaw, neck, and shoulders
- Allow your jaw joint to heal naturally and function comfortably
- Preserve the health and appearance of your smile
Let us help you find relief and healing with our TMJ and teeth grinding solutions. Call 970-500-5928 today for an appointment. Consultations are complimentary for new patients.
Take Pressure Off Your Jaw With A Custom Mouthguard
Your temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, controls the movement of your jaw. Since you rely on this joint to eat, speak, yawn, laugh, and more, it needs to function properly so you can function properly! When it doesn’t, you’ll definitely notice the widespread effects.
You might experience some of these common symptoms of TMJ disorder:
- Frequent headaches or migraines
- Teeth grinding and jaw clenching
- Facial swelling and jaw soreness
- Muscle tension in your neck and shoulders
- Clicking noises in your jaw
If you think you might be suffering from problems with your TMJ, visit us for a thorough evaluation. We can determine if you’d benefit from a custom mouthguard. It fits over your teeth to prevent you from clenching down on your jaw and grinding your teeth while you sleep. A custom mouthguard can alleviate your painful symptoms and give your jaw the chance to heal naturally.
Treat Your TMJ Disorder With Orthodontics For Lasting Relief
For more complicated cases of TMJ misalignment, you may need to consider one of our orthodontic treatments to find lasting healing and relief. To realign your teeth and restore balance to your bite position, we might suggest orthodontic solutions like:
- Custom braces called KLOwen Braces
- Braces on the inside of the teeth (lingual) with Inbrace
- Clear treatment options, including custom in-house aligners, Spark aligners, and clear braces
Having a variety of treatment options available to you will give you the best chance to finally end your painful bite problems, keep your mouth healthy, and improve your smile. Call Richter Orthodontics at 970-500-5928 to set up an appointment for TMJ treatment in Greeley, or schedule online.
