TMJ Therapy Treatment in Glendale & San Tan Valley and West Phoenix
Does your jaw click? Are headaches disrupting your life? You may have temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. At Smile Fitness Dental Centers, we provide customized, non-surgical treatment to reduce TMJ symptoms.
Your jaw's smooth motion is controlled by two small joints in front of your ears. Pain and pressure occur when these joints are irritated by a misaligned bite, stress, bruxism (teeth grinding) or a variety of other factors. Your Smile Fitness dentist will perform a comprehensive examination to determine the cause of your discomfort. Many patients find relief with custom-fitted appliances that reposition the bite and eliminate nighttime teeth grinding. We may suggest building up the surfaces of your teeth to restore proper bite alignment.
