Find pain relief from TMJ Treatment in Dubai, UAE
Your jaw joints are some of the most complex in the body. Known as the temporomandibular joints, or TMJs, they are responsible for connecting the jaw to the skull and are used countless times each day as you speak, laugh, yawn, eat, and make any other movements of the mouth. Dysfunction of the TMJs can lead to a variety of uncomfortable symptoms. Luckily, the team at Precision Dental Clinic in Dubai, UAE offers expert diagnosis and treatment for patients looking for jaw pain relief.
Symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder
Many patients with TMJ disorders often go without a diagnosis for years because the symptoms associated with TMJ disorder aren’t always clearly distinguishable as problems with the jaw joints. Still, there are some warning symptoms that you can look out for. They are:
- Chronic headaches
- Jaw pain
- Locking or popping of the jaw joint
- Ear or neck pain
- Facial swelling
- Pain while chewing
- Limited range of motion in the jaw
Treatment for temporomandibular joint disorder
Finding the right TMJ solutions requires properly identifying the root cause of the disorder which can vary by individual. For example, some patients may suffer from pain due to habits such as biting nails or chewing on hard objects. For these individuals, lifestyle changes may eliminate the pain. For individuals who grind and clench their teeth, a custom oral appliance may be recommended to wear during sleep in order to reduce the strain on the jaw and find relief from TMJ pain and headaches.
Other treatment options that may improve the symptoms of TMJ include:
- Replacing old restorations – this can improve the bite which can relieve stress on the jaw.
- Replacing missing teeth – dentures, dental bridges, and implants are all options to restore the smile.
- Orthodontic treatment – severe misalignment of the bite can be improved through orthodontic treatment such as braces or Invisalign.
