What Is TMJ Therapy?
The TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is the spot where your jaw connects to your skull to allow you to open and close your jaw easily. Sometimes the joint is injured or damaged, resulting in a painful condition called temporomandibular joint disorder or dysfunction (TMD). If you are experiencing pain or hearing noises when you open your jaw, schedule a consultation with our dental team to determine if you have TMD. At Leon Springs Dental Center in San Antonio, TX, we use innovative equipment to diagnose and care for your TMD to alleviate symptoms. Your TMJ therapy will be based on the cause of your TMD and your specific condition, but a few options are oral appliances (mouth guards or night guards), bite alteration, dental restorations, and more.
What Should I Expect from TMJ Therapy?
To diagnose TMD, we will listen carefully to understand your concerns prior to a physical exam. During the examination, we will assess how your jaw moves and search for indications of teeth grinding, jaw clenching, and misalignment of your teeth. We will also palpate the jawbone and surrounding area for any swelling and tenderness. We might want to have digital x-rays of your lower head along with an analysis of your bite to look for underlying factors that could determine your treatment method. Depending on the examination, we will go over your treatment choices that may incorporate a mouth guard, orthodontics, or dental restorations (crowns, bridges, and dentures).
Leon Springs Dental Center Reviews
Amazing dental office that I now consider my regular dentist. Thorough, considerate and very professional, great team!
We have gone to many dentists in the past, even a family member, and this is by far the best experience we have had. Office staff is amandine and the dentists and hygienists are kind and caring
The sweetest people work here. I have been terrified of the dentist forever from bad experiences before so i came into this appointment with a lot of fear and although i still would rather not be at the dentist the staff was so amazing and made me feel comfortable the whole time.
Highly recommended Definitely a group of professional team
I have been in great hands with Dr. Walker and her staff since I first started with them over 5 years ago. Everything from the customer service, genuine care, communication, patience, and even their charitable works was been top notch and very comforting throughout my time with them. If you are reading these reviews, you are probably looking for a dentist. Stop scrolling and book an appointment. You have found what you are looking for. 💯
