TMJ

“She no longer suffers from jaw pain, headaches, dizziness”– Melissa B

There is Help for Your Pain

TMJ disorders affect millions of Americans every day. Symptoms range from acute to chronic jaw pain, headaches, migraines, neck and shoulder tension/pain, ear pain, ringing in the ear, anxiety, insomnia, and low energy.

Several causes of TMJ disorder include:

  • Trauma
  • Stress
  • Clenching/grinding
  • Arthritis
  • Fragmented sleep
  • Depression
  • Perimenopause

With so many causes and symptoms for TMJ disorder, it is important to contact a specialist to not only find relief for oral pain but to also prevent further damage, chronic pain, and permanent effects, which is where TMJ treatment appliances come in.

TMJ Pain Relief Specialists and Treatment

There are pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical options. Non-pharmaceutical options include static or dynamic appliances which stabilize the jaw joint in conjunction with osteopathic or craniosacral therapy, and myofunctional therapy.

TMJ Treatment and Remedies

There are several approaches that Dr. Kagan will recommend while finding a solution for your oral pain and symptoms.

1. Oral appliances – These are used as a first line of defense for jaw imbalance or narrowed airways for TMJ. This, in conjunction with physical therapy, helps to realign structures that may have been immobile prior to treatment.

2. Acupuncture – Often used for nerve-related treatment, acupuncture helps your body rest and relax to the point at which your body begins initiating natural healing capabilities. This, alongside mediation, can help to relax the nervous system and is a great procedure for pain management and treatment.

3. Natural remedies – A rising and increasingly common trend that has been sweeping the world is to use natural oils and minerals to combat physical symptoms and pain. Something our TMJ dentists recommend is using olive oil just on the inside of the nose before bedtime to decrease airflow resistance, therefore allowing more oxygen to your tissue cells. Magnesium is also commonly recommended for tense muscles, digestion, and insomnia.
