Improve Your Quality of Life With TMJ Therapy

You may not think much about routine activities such as talking and eating. However, if you suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, these everyday activities can cause you considerable pain. Your TMJs sit on either side of your head to make it possible to move your jaw. If these joints become irritated or inflamed, opening and closing your mouth can become extremely uncomfortable.

Dr. Walls can help with your TMJ pain:

  • We’ll begin with a thorough exam and possibly some X-rays.
  • If we see signs of TMJ problems, we’ll advise you on the next steps.
  • Usually, we recommend making a custom TMJ appliance that will relieve tension on your jaw joints.
  • We’ll take digital impressions, send the specifications to a lab, and they will create your appliance.
  • You’ll return to our office and Dr. Walls will ensure the appliance fits perfectly and does its job correctly.
  • You’ll wear the appliance while sleeping to stop problematic grinding and clenching.
