He can detect the root cause to restore proper jaw functioning instead of simply treating symptoms. With some therapies you can feel immediate results, and with others you will slowly improve overall jaw function and preserve your smile in the process. Let us help you smile without TMJ pain!

Symptoms of TMJ Disorder

Many patients self-diagnose TMJ disorder when the pain or swelling becomes unbearable. However, there are some less noticeable signs and symptoms you need to be aware of. These include:

  • Chronic neck and jaw pain
  • Difficulty chewing foods
  • Clicking or locking of the jaw joint
  • Crackles or tenderness of the joint
  • Frequent headaches or migraines
  • Frequent toothaches
  • Muscle spasms around the jaw
  • Pain around the ears or upper jaw

What Causes TMJ Disorder?

Are you guilty of any of the following? Checking two or more means you could be at an increased risk of developing TMJ disorder:

  • Grinding your teeth
  • Chewing on hard objects
  • Chewing on ice
  • Cracking your jaw or doing jaw exercises without warming up
  • A misaligned bite
  • Poor posture
  • Poor stress management skills
  • Chewing gum excessively
  • Neglecting arthritis and joint care treatment

Effective TMJ Treatment Options

Breaking a teeth grinding habit is a necessary first step for many TMJ disorder sufferers. We may perform an occlusal adjustment (bite adjustment) to restore alignment of the jaw and recommend wearing a night guard to protect the teeth from further damage. Lifestyle changes and stress management techniques are part of this process.

Working with a Dawson doctor means you will receive a treatment plan that takes functional aesthetics, comfort, over-all health and stability into account. In some cases, Dr. Warrenbrand uncovers related conditions that may require more advanced treatment.
