TMJ Treatment - Augusta, GA

Put Jaw Pain in the Past

Understanding the TMJ Disorder-Bruxism Connection

Are you experiencing chronic jaw pain or sore facial muscles, especially in the morning when you first wake up? We see many patients who need TMJ treatment in Augusta, GA, and in most cases, their jaw and muscle pain, and flat or worn-down teeth, is due to grinding and clenching (bruxism). They also usually have chronic pain in their facial muscles and joints, headaches or migraines, and pain radiating to the shoulders, neck, and back. If you have these symptoms, they can often be attributed to an imbalance between your teeth, facial muscles, and jaw joints. Issues that occur in one area can greatly affect other areas, too. For this reason, many of our patients who grind and clench their teeth also have problems with their temporomandibular joints (TMJ), which connect your lower jaw to your skull. We’ll help you put your jaw pain and associated symptoms in the past with targeted and personalized treatments like custom bite adjustments, oral appliances, and orthodontics. You can experience a comfortable life with TMJ treatment in Augusta, GA from our experienced dental team!
