If you are affected by temporomandibular joint disorder or TMD, you know how the pain and discomfort can lower your quality of life. At Distinctive Dental Services in Lake Jackson, TMJ/TMD treatment has helped countless patients manage their condition.
The temporomandibular or jaw joint connects the lower jaw bone to the skull. TMD is often accompanied by jaw and facial pain, headaches, earaches, neck pain, and chewing difficulty. TMD is also associated with jaw clicking, locking, or clenching, and can cause tooth damage and bone loss.
Many TMJ patients first came to Distinctive Dental Services after trying to relieve their frequent headaches. Since, 1998, we have noticed that many dental patients don’t realize they have TMJ disorder because it can be difficult to pinpoint precisely what is causing the pain. A TMJ specialist can properly diagnose your specific issues and recommend an effective course of action.
Because a comprehensive treatment plan is most effective, we carefully coordinate with with a network of TMD specialists including ENT doctors, neurologists, and physical therapists. If you are suffering from jaw pain, we recommend a consultation with Dr. Elrod at Distinctive Dental Services in Lake Jackson.
