TMJ/TMD Therapy – Evergreen, CO
Customized & Effective TMJ Therapy
TMD, also known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction, is a condition that impacts your ability to easily maneuver and use your jaw. When these joints aren’t working as they should be, it could make it difficult to complete basic daily actions, such as yawning and chewing food. This condition can also cause a variety of uncomfortable symptoms that impact your daily life, such as headaches, chronic jaw pain, and earaches.

Why Choose Evergreen Dental Group for TMJ/TMD Therapy?
Diagnosis & Treatment
Many cases of TMD go undiagnosed because patients aren’t sure of what symptoms are red flags. If you experience lockjaw, earaches, chronic jaw pain, or discomfort while chewing, then you should be examined for TMJ disorder. When you visit our office, we’ll first test your range of jaw motion. Then we’ll look for signs of teeth grinding, which is a tell-tale symptom of TMD. Once we determine the underlying cause of your condition, we will develop a treatment plan to ease your discomfort.
To help secure your jaw in a more natural position while you sleep and prevent grinding from impacting your oral health, we offer customized occlusal splints. These are orthotic devices that are made from acrylic resin, specially designed to support your TMJ and reduce pressure and tension on your facial muscles. With regular use over time, these can reduce uncomfortable TMD symptoms, such as chronic jaw pain and headaches.
