Knowing the Proper and Effective TMJ Treatments in New York

Popping and clicking of jaw joints may mean a thousand different things. It is not necessarily a symptom of the condition known as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder or TMD. However, if the popping and clicking is accompanied by mild to severe pain in the jaw joint, then it is most likely to be TMD. Other possible TMJ symptoms are ringing in the ear, headaches, and neck pain.

There are millions of Americans, mostly women, experiencing TMJ. But in many cases, a lot of the supposed TMJ sufferers do not get diagnosed properly. The affected joint of the TMJ disorder is actually the same joint that facilitates your chewing and speaking activities.

If you grind your teeth often, you are a likely candidate to develop serious problems with your jaw which can in turn badly affect the teeth, gums and bone structures of your mouth. Other common causes of TMJ are: poor biting that puts muscle under stress, accidents that damage the bones of the face, arthritis, and unbalanced activity or overuse of jaw muscles.

The Family Dental Group is the dental practice to be when you have the symptoms or if you suspect that you have TMJ disorder. With proven experience and expertise in handling TMJ treatments, the dental specialists at Family Dental will evaluate your medical and dental history, as well as examine closely your neck, head, face, teeth and jaw. Primarily, they will determine whether a surgery procedure is necessary or not for your disorder. That said, most effective TMJ treatments are handled without necessity for surgical intervention.
