Del Rio Dental Studio

TMJ & TMD Treatment

Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) allows your lower jaw to open and close. If you’ve experienced jaw pain, a temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is one potential cause. At Del Rio Dental Studio, we assess your jaw to diagnose TMD, identify underlying causes, and provide effective treatment for lasting relief.

Achieving Relief from TMJ Pain

Del Rio Dental Studio provides a range of treatment options to help you achieve relief from TMJ pain. Options such as orthodontic treatment to address underlying issues, mouth guards to hold your jaw in a safe position and prevent grinding, and TMJ splint therapy are all treatments that could be right for your case.

Signs You May Have a TMJ Disorder

Jaw pain, both chronic and when chewing, is one of the most common symptoms of a TMJ disorder. You may also notice pain throughout your face and neck. However, TMJ disorders can manifest with a wide range of symptoms, many of which are not obviously connected to your jaw. 

For example, TMJ disorders are associated with symptoms like frequent headaches. The placement of the joint on either side of your face can lead to symptoms that feel like an earache but are, in fact, related to a TMJ disorder.

What Causes TMJ Disorders?

Many underlying causes contribute to TMJ disorders and their associated symptoms. Like other joints, the TMJ can develop arthritis, especially with age. Nocturnal grinding or clenching is another common factor. Bite issues could mean that your jaw sits in an irregular position, causing stress and fatigue related to TMJ disorders.

Find the Right Treatment for Your TMJ Pain

With so many potential contributing factors, you need a treatment plan that addresses your unique needs. Dr. Del Rio in Hayward, CA will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the underlying cause of your TMJ pain and design a treatment that is tailored to you.
