Discovering The Causes Of TMJ
This disorder of the jaw joint is typically identified by the pain associated with it. Your mouth may hurt near your ears, and you could be suffering from muscle pains, headaches, and migraines.
The actual causes of TMJ are unknown and it is not clear why the condition forms, but there are some factors that may trigger the condition:
- Bruxism, or teeth grinding
- Pulled muscles or other types of trauma
- Bad bite (malocclusion)
Genetics also play a role in TMJ disorder. For instance, women are more prone to having the condition than men. Even though there is often no exact cause for the condition, Dr. DiBona will provide you with the best treatment option.
Providing Specialized Treatment For TMJ
Oral appliances may be needed to control your TMJ disorder and teeth grinding. Dr. DiBona will custom make the oral appliance and ensure that it fits properly to provide you a comfortable way to get the relief you need.
We also offer Botox® treatments to assist with your TMJ. Botox® helps eliminate jaw pain, and it is also a great migraine and headache solution. Dr. DiBona also offers orthodontic treatments to correct bite problems that contribute to TMJ pain.
