What is TMJ Treatment in Doral, Florida by Dr. Sonia Olivares

Consult a dentist and get a TMJ treatment Doral if you get symptoms of pain and tenderness in your jaw area, neck, or head every time you talk or eat or if your jaw often gets stuck.

According to WebMD, the TMJ or temporomandibular joint is the hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull, which are located in front of your ears. This is the joint that makes it possible for you to move your jaw so that you can chew, talk, or yawn with ease. That is why it is painful and extremely uncomfortable to have TMJ disorders. When this happens you have to contact a trusted TMJ treatment dentist.

What are the most common causes of TMJ disorders?

There is no one definite cause of TMJ disorder. Symptoms may arise from problems with the muscles of your jaw or the something within the joint itself.

Here are some common causes though:

1. Putting pressure on the joint by habitually grinding your teeth (or clenching them);

2. Dislocation of the soft cushion or disc between the joint's ball and socket; and,

3. Joint arthritis.

If you get symptoms of pain and tenderness in your jaw area, neck, or head every time you talk or eat or if your jaw often gets stuck, then it is the time that you consult a dentist and get a TMJ treatment Doral

Home treatments for TMJ disorder include over the counter medications to relieve the pain or applying heat packs or cold packs on the affected area. While you are still suffering from TMJ pain, you can be contented in eating soft food for the meantime.

For a long term effect, though, you have to visit a TMJ treatment dentist who will check your jaw and advice what to do. The dentist can propose surgery if it needs immediate medication. 

However, this should only be considered if there are no other options to relieve the pain. The first kind of surgery is arthroscopy. Arthroscopy is the process of making an incision to the ear and inserting a piece of small equipment so that the doctor can see through a monitor while he or she is operating. Depending on the severity of the disorder, the surgeon may have to remove tissues or adjust discs or parts of your joint. The second kind of surgery is open-joint surgery where the doctor directly operates on the area without the use of monitors.
