What is TMJ?

TMJ disorder, commonly known as TMD or TMJ, involves significant jaw pain and limited joint movement, affecting essential functions like chewing and talking. Symptoms include facial pain, swelling, teeth grinding, facial sensitivity, jaw locking, and limited jaw motion. TMJ symptoms can vary, encompassing headaches, migraines, stiffness, earaches, painful chewing, jaw locking, and changes in facial expression or bite alignment.

If you're experiencing jaw pain, Dr. Bedich will complete an examination and recommend a suitable treatment option.

How Our TMJ Treatments Can Help

At The Center For Progressive Dentistry, we provide various treatment options to bring relief. If left untreated, TMJ symptoms can persist for years. Dr. Bedich may suggest home treatments like stretches, warm compresses, and anti-inflammatory medications for mild cases. In more severe cases, a customized mouthguard can be crafted to alleviate jaw pain during sleep.

For diagnosed conditions, Dr. Bedich offers these treatment methods:

  • Oral Appliance (Bruxism Mouth Guard): If you're diagnosed with TMJ, Dr. Bedich can create a customized mouthguard to be worn during sleep. This oral appliance helps reduce jaw pain and dysfunction.
  • Facial Injections: While commonly associated with cosmetic procedures, esthetic injections can effectively relieve severe TMJ symptoms. When injected into specific areas, facial injections helps alleviate migraines, pain, jaw tension, and earaches. This treatment has no impact on facial appearance, only offering pain reduction.
