When you wake up in the morning, do you experience symptoms such as facial discomfort or soreness in your jaws? If so, you may be suffering from a TMJ disorder. At the office Southern Maryland Family Dental Associates, we employ sophisticated technology and advanced techniques to diagnose and treat TMJ problems. Don’t let myofascial pain and impaired jaw function take a toll on your quality of life any longer. We have a proven track record for successfully treating many patients and we are confident we can do the same for you.
A TMJ disorder is any condition that causes discomfort or impairs the motion of the joints, which hinge your upper and lower jaws. These joints, known as the temporomandibular joints, are located on either side of the face, directly below the ears, and make it possible for you to speak, swallow, and chew.
To provide an accurate diagnosis, we will check for tenderness and for any clicking, popping or difficulty moving your jaw. We will also use leading-edge diagnostic equipment to gather the most precise information about your case. Many patients have had their symptoms alleviated with help from our custom fabricated night guards. Like a retainer, night guards work by keeping your jaws slightly separated as you sleep to prevent teeth grinding and to allow your facial muscles to relax. Custom fabricated to fit your mouth comfortably and securely, you will get a great night’s sleep without having to worry about any facial discomfort in the morning.
