Earlier this year we were able to diagnose and treat a patient who was suffering from jaw pain. She had seen three different professionals, but none of them understood her problem. After visiting our office, she kindly added a review of her experience to Google. Read on to learn how we were able to help.
I know you can get so busy that you may put your own dental health on the back burner. Sometimes, you might overlook or tolerate signs of trouble — sore or bleeding gums, a tooth that may be sensitive to hot liquids, a bite that isn’t quite right — until it becomes a problem you can’t ignore. It happens. I want to encourage you not to postpone dealing with these issues because catching problems early can save you pain, time, and frustration. The old saying “a stitch in time saves nine” is extremely relevant when it comes to dental care. It’s never too early to take care of your teeth!
Many people suffer from migraine headaches, jaw pain, pain in the neck or face, and poor sleep quality. They may also experience problems with their bite and have difficulty closing their mouths comfortably. Without realizing it, they could be suffering from a condition called Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD). This condition involves the temporomandibular joint that connects your skull to your lower jaw. Treatment can be very effective in providing relief, but it requires a provider with knowledge of the disorder and the skills required to develop solutions unique to the individual.
If you, a member of your family, or a friend is experiencing symptoms like those I mentioned that are associated with TMD, or any other kind of dental problem, we would be honored to be of service in finding a solution. Providing you with the dental care you need is what we look forward to! Please contact my office to schedule an appointment for a consultation.
All the best,
