TMD Treatment in Rancho Santa Margarita
Diagnosis may include taking digital X-rays of the jaw and face, as well as analyzing the results of the tests using advanced computer software. By closely examining the jaw joints, muscles, and teeth, our dentist in Rancho Santa Margarita can determine which structures may be causing problems and how they relate to one another. This comprehensive approach enables her to create a personalized treatment plan that will address your specific concerns and eliminate the symptoms you are experiencing.
Following diagnosis, our dentist in Rancho Santa Margarita may recommend any of the following treatments for relieving the symptoms of TMJD and helping to restore optimal function to the jaw joints and surrounding tissues:
Bite splints: These plastic mouth guards can be used to alleviate pain by repositioning the jaw into a more comfortable position. A bite splint can be worn at night during sleep or throughout the day while a patient is at work.
Nightguards: A simple device similar to a retainer, a night guard can help prevent you from grinding your teeth in your sleep, which can cause damage to the teeth, gums, and jaws and contribute to Temporomandibular Joint Disorders.
