Jaw Pain and TMJ Treatment for Northeast Ohio

Millions of people suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Because it’s a condition that affects one of the most frequently used joints in the body, the jaw joint, TMJ disorder is very painful. When you eat, speak or make many facial expressions, you are using your jaw joint.

Symptoms of TMJ disorder can include:

  • • ear pain
  • • sore, popping and/or clicking jaws
  • • difficulty opening your mouth
  • • headaches

Many patients who suffer from debilitating headaches and soreness, popping and clicking when chewing suffer from a dysfunction of the joint, ligaments and tendons where the lower jaw meets the skull. While the actual cause of such symptoms varies, most cases can be treated similarly with a simple retainer like appliance known as a 'biteplane". If you think you could be suffering from TMJ/TMD, ask us to evaluate you at your next visit.

TMJ Treatments

Glick Dental Associates’ TMJ treatment options can alleviate pain and symptoms of TMJ disorder. They are an alternative to costly, invasive and time-consuming surgery. Solutions include:

  • Nonsurgical bite guards: soft plastic teeth protectors that prevent teeth grinding.
  • Occlusal equilibration: filing of chewing and biting surfaces of teeth.
  • Orthodontics

Call Glick Dental Associates at 440-349-1400 for a consultation today.
