TMJ Therapy

Why TMJ Therapy?

If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your jaw, you may have TMD or temporal mandibular disorder – or temporomandibular joint disorder. This painful condition causes patients to not only suffer throughout the course of the day; they also often have difficulty sleeping. At Mosaic Dentistry, we know how TMD can negatively affect people, which is why we are pleased to offer a variety of TMD treatment options to our patients  throughout the Cedar Park, TX, area.

How to Know If You Have TMD

Of course, the only real way to know if you have TMD is by getting a diagnosis from your dentist or doctor. But there are some indications that you may have TMD, including the following:

  • Jaw pain or stiffness
  • Earaches that spread into the facial area
  • Soreness in front of either ear
  • Popping or clicking in jaw
  • Teeth sensitivity
  • Neck pain
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding at night)
  • Limited range of motion in the jaw

More Information About TMD/TMJ Treatment

Left untreated, the discomfort caused by TMD will only get worse. Along with pain, TMD makes it hard to chew food or get a good night’s sleep. At some point, TMD may cause severe tooth and jaw issues that may require surgery. Fortunately, there are several non-surgical TMD treatment options that can address the condition if it’s caught early on. Talk to your dentist today for more information.
