End Jaw Pain With TMJ Treatment in Boynton Beach
Outside of an anatomy class, you may never have heard of your temporomandibular joint (or TMJ). Yet it can cause chronic jaw aches and other painful conditions. Fortunately, Dr. Hugh Rosenblatt can end your pain with TMJ treatment. He treats TMJ disorders (or TMDs) with a custom-made mouthguard that takes pressure off your jaw.
A mouthguard will:
- Return normal function to your jaw
- Stop jaw pain
- Relieve related conditions like headaches and earaches
- Prevent you from grinding your teeth, which can put stress on your TMJ
If you’re experiencing TMJ pain, call our Boynton Beach, FL dentist office to find out how we can help.
Take a Simple Approach to Relieving TMJ Pain
Some dentists treat TMJ disorders with orthodontic or even surgical procedures. Compared to those options, a mouthguard is less invasive, less expensive, and faster. In addition, it requires no permanent modification to your jaw or teeth. Because it’s made just for you, the mouthguard will fit comfortably and allow you to breathe easily.
A thorough exam and impressions of your teeth are all that’s needed to get a custom mouthguard. You can relax while watching TV or listening to music as Dr. Rosenblatt takes your impressions.
Pay Attention to TMJ Symptoms
Dr. Rosenblatt will look for signs of teeth grinding and jaw problems during your dental exams. In addition to grinding, other conditions that can contribute to TMJ pain include arthritis, a blow to the jaw, and connective tissue disease.
