DO YOU HAVE A TMJ DISORDER?
TMJ disorder, AKA temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), causes persistent jaw pain that may negatively affect your entire life. From facial discomfort to problems concentrating and an overall bad mood, TMD is a complex issue involving the jaw muscles and joints used during eating and speaking.
Our dentist in Rice Lake, WI, helps you determine the cause of your jaw pain to treat it. Common causes include jaw misalignment, bruxism (teeth grinding), arthritis, stress, or an injury. We work closely with you to customize an appropriate treatment plan which may involve one or a series of TMJ therapies.
Locking jaw and/or popping jaw
Tenderness in or around the jaw
Pain in the TMJ region or around the ears
Headaches and/or neck pains
Discomfort when opening mouth or chewing
HOW DO WE HELP?
Dr. Isaacson uses his extensive training and modern techniques to provide you with long-lasting pain relief.
To diagnose and treat a TMJ disorder, we first review your medical history, symptoms, x-rays, and the jaw’s range of motion. Then, based on the findings, our TMJ therapy dentist recommends the best course of treatment, starting with the least invasive options. These may include lifestyle changes, custom oral appliances such as a mouthguard, medicine, BOTOX, and/or orthodontics.
