TMJ Disorder

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder Therapy

We offer specialized TMJ therapy for patients experiencing discomfort and dysfunction related to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The TMJ connects the jaw to the skull and can cause a range of symptoms when not functioning properly, including jaw pain, headaches, clicking or popping sounds, and difficulty in moving the jaw.

Our approach to TMJ therapy begins with a thorough evaluation to diagnose the specific nature of your TMJ disorder. We consider factors like your bite alignment, jaw movement, and muscle function. Based on this assessment, we develop a personalized treatment plan which may include a combination of approaches.

Treatment options can range from simple self-care practices and exercises to more advanced interventions. These may involve the use of oral appliances, like a mouthguard or splint, to alleviate stress on the joint, physical therapy, and in some cases, recommendations for lifestyle changes to reduce symptoms.

Our goal is to provide relief from TMJ-related discomfort and improve your overall oral function. The team at Premier Dentistry of Gettysburg is dedicated to offering compassionate care and effective solutions for TMJ disorders, ensuring that you can speak, chew, and yawn comfortably and without pain.
