Comfortable, Non-Surgical TMJ Treatment in Kingston, PA

 Do you have unexplained chronic migraines? Persistent pain in your jaw, ears, neck, or shoulders? If so, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD) may be to blame. At Lawrence Dental Excellence in Kingston, PA, we help patients find relief from chronic pain with safe, non-surgical TMJ treatment.

What are the Temporomandibular Joints?

 These complex joints reside where your jaw connects with the base of your skull. They are responsible for the multidirectional movements that are necessary for the smooth function of the jaw. When the joints are functioning properly, you are more than likely unaware of them, but they are constantly at work, helping you open and close your mouth when you bite, chew, talk, and yawn. Because these joints are so complex, they are particularly prone to dysfunction that can be aggravated by a misaligned bite, bruxism, stress, and other issues.

Common Signs and Symptoms of TMJD

  • Chronic Headaches
  • Dizziness or Vertigo
  • Ear Congestion or Ringing in the Ears
  • Facial Pain
  • Jaw Clicking or Popping
  • Limited Movement of the Jaw
  • Neck and Shoulder Pain
  • Pain in the Jaw Muscles
  • Insomnia

Diagnosing TMJD

 It often takes individuals with the symptoms of TMJ disorder multiple attempts to determine the source of their problems. When you’re a patient at Lawrence Dental Excellence, we make it a point to look for the signs of TMJD during regular check-ups. If we notice certain signs such as worn-down teeth from clenching, misaligned bite, or pain and tenderness in the jaw, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan.

Finding Relief from TMJ Pain with Non-Surgical Treatment

 One of the most common ways we treat TMJ disorder is with custom oral appliance therapy. The appliance is worn at night and is effective at relieving pain by relaxing the jaw muscles and properly positioning the bite.

Of course, treatment doesn’t stop there. With TMJD, it’s also important to identify triggers and make lifestyle changes that can improve symptoms. This includes methods of coping with stress and other forms of relaxation to alleviate the stress put on the jaw muscles and joints.

Always a great experience at Dr Lawrence’s office. They are now like close friends to me. I originally came to Dr Lawrence with some serious dental issues and he not only provided solutions that others either could not or would not …. but …. far exceeded my expectations. I now have people approaching me to compliment my smile and tell me my teeth are spectacular. Crazy! But, more importantly …… I no longer laugh with my hand over my mouth. And for me …… that is everything!
