FUNCTIONAL CARE

Temporomandibular joint functional disorders are a serous of problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have had symptoms like pain or a "clicking" sound, you'll be glad to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Since some types of TMJ problems can lead to more serious conditions, early detection and treatment are important.

For those patients having a functional problem the objectives of treatment are to:

  • Reduce the pain
  • Restore comfortable function to the jaw
  • Limit the recurrence of pain
  • Establish a more stable jaw relationship

Should the habit persist and muscles and joint related structures continue to be uncomfortable, other treatment techniques need to be evaluated. These may include physical therapy, jaw exercises or the use of a specially designed bite plate. Bite plate therapy is often successful in relaxing the jaw muscles, reducing muscle spasm and allowing the jaw to close in a position that allows more muscle relaxation. There are various treatment options that we can utilize to improve the harmony and function of your jaw. Once an evaluation confirms a diagnosis of TMJ disorder, Swiss Perfect Smile Clinic doctor will determine the proper course of treatment. It is important to note that treatment always works best with a team approach of self-care as well as professional care.
