Read on to discover our TMJ therapy solutions in Long Valley, NJ.
What is TMD?
Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is an uncomfortable condition that involves a consistently overworked, pained, or strained jaw muscle. It usually stems from excess pressure due to injury, bite misalignment, or teeth grinding. These conditions wear on your jaw and cause it to be constantly tense, even while you’re sleeping or trying to relax.
The symptoms of TMD include:
Persistent head, neck, shoulder, or jaw pain
Jaw stiffness or weakness
Frequent jaw popping, grinding, or clicking
Ringing in your ears
Worn down, fractured, or loose teeth
Dizziness or loss of balance
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms over an extended period, you may be suffering from TMD. Thankfully, you can find relief for your pain and correct the causes of TMD when you seek TMJ therapy with Dr. Rogler.
Our TMJ Therapy Options
Custom Oral Appliances
TMD is often the result of a long-misaligned bite or habitual teeth grinding. Resolving these issues allows your jaw to rest and recover. That’s why Dr. Rogler creates effective and comfortable custom oral appliances to help your jaw heal itself.
These personalized mouthguards help mitigate the effects of nighttime teeth grinding (bruxism) and clenching. We design them to fit into your mouth perfectly and adjust where your jaw sits, allowing it to relax and heal. Plus, the detailed fit offsets and absorbs the enormous pressure that causes TMD.
Oral appliances are effective for alleviating pressure and misalignment that often cause overwhelming jaw pain. Discover this solution and more during your consultation at our Long Valley, NJ dental office.
You can help heal your jaw and loosen your aching muscles with light massage exercises for TMJ pain. Our dentist will advise you about pressure and pain points in your jaw to target your specific symptoms.
These techniques are designed specifically to aid in TMJ therapy and can be completed anywhere for instant stress relief. Whether it’s at work or before bed, massage helps increase blood flow to your jaw for better healing.
Our expert dental team wants your healing process to go smoothly and quickly. Therefore, we may recommend cutting out tough and crunchy foods as we begin your TMJ therapy. These suggestions can help reduce strain and pressure from chewing.
However, these recommendations are not permanent — you can begin to reintroduce all the foods you love as soon as you notice a reduction in pain and a wider range of motion from your jaw.
