We not only straighten your teeth but help stop your jaw pain
Temporomandibular joint is very dear to our hearts here at Orthodontic Alliances. We have treated thousands of temporomandibular joint patients since the ’80s. We are and have established ourselves as a regional treatment center for temporomandibular joint patients and see patients from all over the state. We get referrals from not only dentists but from physicians all around the region for treating temporomandibular joint problems.
Many patients who have popping and clicking of their jaws don’t have pain, and we monitor those during the course of orthodontic care. But many of them do have pain. If that’s the case, you don’t want to ignore that. You want to address that before having braces. That’s what sets our practice apart. Many orthodontists don’t treat temporomandibular joint problems – either don’t treat it, or they’ll refer out to someone else to treat them.
We treat them in-house as a coordinated effort with the orthodontics so we can give them a complete holistic correction of their bite, not just straightening the teeth. So we treat both temporomandibular joint patients who have popping and clicking of their jaws, and we treat a lot of patients who just clench and grind their teeth and have headaches and problems with their jaws every day. So if you’re having temporomandibular joint pain, jaw pain, headache pain, waking up in the morning with headaches and neck stiffness, which is not normal for someone who wakes not to be rested, please give us a call for an evaluation of what possibly may be going on with your jaw or your jaw joint so we can maybe recommend what necessary treatment you may need to resolve those issues. We’ve been doing it for 30 years.
