Our commitment to your oral health includes any issues or discomfort you may be having within your jaw joint, or TMJ. Dr. Paes is specially trained to treat temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) using the best that modern dentistry has to offer. We understand how disruptive and frustrating jaw pain can be. In many patients, TMD leads to chronic tension headaches, jaw clicking and other symptoms that affect one’s quality of life. To ensure your jaw joint is restored to healthy and comfortable function with general dentistry, choose Town Center Dental of LaGrange for TMJ & TMD treatment in Lagrangeville, Poughkeepsie and the surrounding areas.
Jaw Pain Relief
When the jaw joint and its surrounding muscles undergo excessive stress or tension, it can create problems within your bite and your dental health. In a large majority of cases, TMJ issues are brought on by teeth grinding or a clenching habit. Since many of these patients grind their teeth while they sleep, a custom nighttime mouthguard can be an excellent solution to prevent worn teeth. It will also reduce unnecessary strain on the jaw joint. If your TMD is caused by a misaligned bite, it may be necessary to undergo orthodontic treatment to get jaw pain relief.
