TMJ Treatment in Flower Mound

Effectively Providing Relief & Comfort

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder stems from problems associated with the jaw muscles or the temporomandibular joint. The issues range from a slight bother to a complete change in lifestyle. You might experience a slight pain that soon subsides when biting down on hard food, or you might experience severe pain while talking or when chewing on any food substance.

What is the Temporomandibular Joint?

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) joins your lower jaw (your mandible) to the temporal bone of your skull located in front of your ear on each side of your head. Because of the flexibility of your joint, your jaw moves easily – vertically and horizontally – to allow you to talk, chew, and yawn. The muscles attached to and surrounding your TMJ manage the movement and position of your jaw.

What Can Cause TMJ Disorder?

Dr. Titensor has learned that the causes of TMJ disorder can vary from patient to patient, and when not treated properly it can lead to long-term problems. You want to look for problems with your muscles of your jaw or with the joint. Sometimes, trauma to the TMJ, jaw, or head and neck muscles triggers TMJ disorder.

What are Signs of TMJ Disorder?

The following signs may suggest TMJ disorder:

  • Facial pain
  • Headaches and neck aches
  • Teeth that are sensitive to hot and cold
  • TMJ that grinds, pops, or clicks
  • Teeth that become worn down, loose, or broken
  • Jaw that locks when mouth is opened or closed
  • Tightened facial and jaw muscles or clenched teeth

A bite evaluation determines if relief is possible from any of these symptoms of TMJ. Our experienced dental team can handle your TMJ treatment in Flower Mound quickly and efficiently.

What Relief is Available for TMJ Disorder?

Depending on your dental needs, Dr. Titensor can place a tiny appliance onto your upper front teeth that clips into place. The seemingly miracle appliance relaxes your muscles, reduces the frequency of your headache pain, and reduces the intensity of your headache pain. Along with the bite evaluation, Dr. Titensor uses this appliance to help diagnose the cause of your problem. However, even though the appliance offers some pain relief, Dr. Titensor's emphasis is to find the cause of your TMJ disorder and to eliminate your need to wear the device. In addition to the small appliance, Dr. Titensor also uses diagnostic wax-ups, MRIs, CT scans and a Kois deprogrammer to help get your bite into its natural biting position which usually helps eliminate the headaches and joint problems.

Titensor Dental offers inexpensive, safe, and gentle treatment for TMJ disorders, and when treated in the early stages, prevents long-term damage.
