TMJ stands for temporomandibular joints, and TMD stands for the disorder that causes this fragile area to be in pain, whether because of misalignments of your teeth, general trauma, or excess tension in the muscles. Dr. Jason L. Montgomery can help patients find relief and smile big again with personalized treatment options at his Plano dental office.
There is no treatment option for TMD that fits all patients; instead, Dr. Montgomery will have to carefully examine your smile and then make recommendations based on your unique situation. Possible procedures that could provide relief including replacing missing teeth, moving teeth, adjusting your bite, or filling in gaps between teeth. Additionally, a customized mouthpiece can often help alleviate symptoms be preventing any clenching or grinding of the teeth during sleep, which can sometimes contribute to the problem. In very severe cases, surgery might be required. We’ll help you discover what works best for you!
