  • How do I know if I have TMJ?

    Recognizing the symptoms of TMJ Disorder is the first step in seeking treatment. Common signs include:

    • Persistent pain or tenderness in the jaw
    • Aching pain in and around your ear
    • Difficulty or discomfort while chewing
    • Aching facial pain
    • Locking of the joint, making it difficult to open or close your mouth

    If you persistently experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to consult with a professional at Westhill Dental for a thorough evaluation. Early intervention can help prevent further complications and improve your quality of life.

  • Why should I visit a dentist for TMJ Disorder?

    Visiting a dentist for TMJ Disorder is essential because dentists are specifically trained to diagnose and treat issues related to the temporomandibular joint and the musculature of the jaw. A dentist can:

    • Conduct a comprehensive examination to accurately diagnose TMJ Disorder, differentiating it from other potential causes of jaw pain.
    • Provide specialized treatments that may include oral appliances, like mouthguards or splints, to alleviate strain on the TMJ, physical therapy exercises, or recommendations for lifestyle adjustments to reduce symptoms.
    • Offer guidance on further medical consultation if your TMJ disorder is linked to more complex issues, ensuring a multidisciplinary approach to your treatment.

    Seeking treatment from a dental professional ensures that you receive targeted care designed to address your jaw joint’s specific mechanics and health, leading to more effective and lasting relief.
