With TMJ Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jawbone to your skull. Dysfunction of its regular sliding motion from damage or injury can cause pain such as tension headaches, neck or ear pain, and sore jaw muscles. Over 15 percent of adults suffer from the effects of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), and while exact causes of the disorder are unclear, it has been attributed to teeth grinding, or bruxism, stress and injury.
Occlusal adjustment, or the reshaping of the surfaces of the teeth to correct the alignment of the bite, can address teeth grinding and alleviate pain from TMD.
In addition to affecting the health of your jaw, malocclusion, or the imperfect positioning of the teeth, also affects cosmetic dental treatment or dental implant placement. If not corrected prior to treatment, malocclusion can damage cosmetic enhancements such as porcelain veneers, crowns and bridges or dental implants. Incorrect bite alignment adds stress on other teeth that have to work harder to make up for teeth not fitting together properly. Allowing Dr. Delaram Hanookai to address improper alignment to treat TMD, or prior to a restorative procedure, can protect your health and investment.
