Get Jaw Pain Relief with TMJ Therapy in Powell

Have you heard of the temporomandibular joints? Commonly referred to as TMJ, these areas may be small but they serve a crucial function by connecting your lower jaw to your skull and assisting with opening and closing the mouth. Unfortunately, even a slight misalignment can lead to near-debilitating pain and other unpleasant symptoms. At Wedgewood Complete Dentistry, Dr.Ryan Eskridge take this problem very seriously, and we want to provide our patients with much-needed relief as soon as possible.

Causes of TMJ Discomfort

Your Options for TMJ Care

Here in Powell, our doctors offer an in-depth TMJ assessment that evaluates the joint tissue at the “hinge” of the jaw. Initially, our doctors will alleviate the pain you have been experiencing so you are more comfortable. Following the initial TMJ therapy, we will use detailed records of the joint and bite to address the underlying causes of pain and joint breakdown. Possible treatment to create long-term stability and comfort may include a personalized mouth guard to prevent nighttime clenching and grinding (bruxism), an adjustment of the bite, restorative therapy or orthodontic treatment.
