TMJ Therapy Treatment in West Phoenix

Man holding cheek in painDoes your jaw click? Are headaches disrupting your life? You may have temporomandibular joint (TMD) disorder. At Smile Fitness Dental Center, we provide customized, nonsurgical 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 dentists 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.

Bruxism

You may not be able to stop a bad habit that happens without your conscious knowledge but the Smile Fitness Dental Center team can help. Left untreated, bruxism can lead to untold dental damage and wear. Please let us know if you believe you’re suffering from this oral health concern.
