Be Free From Headaches and Migraines Once Again

You probably don’t think much about your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) – unless they’re causing you pain. These complex joints allow you to open and close your mouth to bite, chew, laugh, talk, yawn, and sing. If they become irritated, you can experience a great deal of pain. The good news is that Ziegele Smile Studio offers multiple types of TMJ treatment. Depending on your needs and circumstances, you may be a good candidate for one or more of the following:

  • Custom TMJ Appliance – A professional mouthguard worn while sleeping gently moves your lower jaw forward to ease tension on your TMJs. Your jaw joints will feel better and begin the healing process. The mouthguard also prevents bruxism, or teeth grinding.
  • Botox® Treatment – Botox injected into your jaw will help keep the jaw muscles from moving as much. This will help reduce pain and tenderness and allow you to function better throughout the day.
  • Laser Treatment – Low-level laser treatment targeted to key areas in your jaw will help reduce inflammation and pain, as well as speed up the healing process.

Get the Sumner TMJ treatment you need by calling Ziegele Smile Studio today at 253-299-2428 to schedule an appointment. You can also schedule online. Don’t forget to schedule your next checkup, too.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment/Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

No matter which type of treatment you end up going with, the team here at Ziegele Smile Studio will make sure it’s the right one for you. Besides you, no one wants your treatment to be successful more than we do.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

We understand you want to end the pain caused by a TMJ disorder as soon as you can. The truth is that treatment can take weeks or months depending on the severity of your situation and what needs to be done. For some patients, an oral appliance is the perfect solution in and of itself. For others, Botox® or laser treatment may be a good option.

What are the signs of a TMJ disorder?

Signs of a TMJ disorder may include jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds when chewing, difficulty opening the mouth completely, facial pain, headaches, and ear pain or ringing. Some people may also experience neck and shoulder pain or toothaches unrelated to dental problems. Also, your jaw may feel locked or stuck. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to visit our practice for help.
