Jaw pain and soreness. Headaches or migraines. Clenching or grinding your teeth. These chronic conditions could all be signs of a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Your TM joints are the hinges that allow you to open and close your mouth. You can’t eat or speak without them. Many factors can cause a disorder of your TMJ. Your teeth could be misaligned causing you to grind your teeth and leading to unnecessary stress on your jaw joints. The issue could also be found at the source: the joint itself. Whatever the cause, we offer custom TMJ treatment in North Andover, MA to ensure you find the relief you need.
Our team at Dr. Emma Wu And Associates understands that many TMJ disorder symptoms can be painful and sometimes debilitating. We offer customized treatment plans in North Andover, MA to help you restore balance to your day, your smile, and your overall health. In some cases our dentists may work with specialists to ensure you receive the treatment and relief you need. Some common TMJ treatment solutions include the following:
If your teeth are misaligned and affecting your bite, you have malocclusion. This can cause stress on your TM joints as your teeth try to find a way to come together properly. Orthodontics can be used to straighten your teeth and as a result your bite! This helps reduce or eliminate bruxism as well as the jaw pain associated with it.
