Jaw Surgery for TMJ/TMD

In True Image Orthodontics by trueimage

If you’re looking for orthodontic treatment for more than just a pretty smile and straighter teeth, we can help. If you or a loved one is dealing with TMJ/TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Disease) or another condition which causes discomfort of the jaw, we can not only help control the pain, but we can prevent bone loss and irregular wear of tooth enamel. If you think that there’s no options for these problems, you’re wrong, and waiting longer can cause even more damage to your mouth and jaw. This makes treatment more complex. Early diagnosis and preventive care can help you get back to feeling better, faster.

Here are some causes of TMD:

  • Grinding or clenching your teeth.
  • Movement of the soft cushion or disc between the ball and socket of the joint.
  • Arthritis in the joint.
  • Stress, as it may cause you to tighten facial and jaw muscles or to clench the teeth.

Take a look at our website to learn more about the treatment options available for you.
