Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Treatment

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder , TMJ ,TMD Coral Springs FL DentistThe temporomandibular joint or TMJ is the joint that occurs between the lower and upper jaws. Pain in this joint or in the surrounding tissues is usually referred to as TMJ dysfunction. In some cases, the pain arises from the joint itself, but mostly it will emanate from the muscle tissue attached to the joint.

Dr. Rob Strain is an experienced restorative and cosmetic dentist providing advanced treatments for TMJ. Patients seeking dentistry solutions in a state of the art environment from top dental professionals can receive treatment from Dr. Strain. His dental office receives patients from Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs, Palm Desert, and surrounding areas.

Initial Palliative Treatment

TMJ condition can be triggered over time due to excessive movement of the jaw, such as yawning or a particular dental procedure. Overuse of jaws due to chewing habit or clenching of teeth, malocclusions, poor posture, degenerative diseases such as arthritis, tumors and traumatic injuries may also contribute to TMJ. As an experienced general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Strain will first evaluate the area of pain and try to determine the cause.

A preliminary palliative dentistry treatment will be instituted to provide early relief. Some of the effective immediate solutions to TMJ include anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants, and bite guards. Dr. Strain’s dental office may also recommend bite adjustment and behavioral corrections until relief is obtained. Patients in Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs, Palm Desert and surrounding areas have an opportunity to receive TMJ treatment at Studio Dentistry.

Other Treatments

One of the following treatments may be recommended in case the condition of TMJ does not resolve with palliative treatments:

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

This therapy involves delivery of low level electric current to provide relief from pain by relaxing the facial muscles and jaw joint.

Ultrasound

Deep heat is generated using ultrasound energy, which is applied directly to the joint area to provide relief from soreness and improve jaw mobility.

Trigger-point Injections

The treatment expert may provide pain medications or a local anesthetic through injections directly into tender facial muscles or trigger points for quick relief.

RF or Laser Therapies

Radio frequency therapy or low level laser therapy may be employed to stimulate the joint and promote blood flow. This helps lower the pain and inflammation, and allows for improved mobility of the jaw.

Surgery

Surgery may be the final treatment option in extreme cases of TMJ. If the patient has no significant history of TMJ, but experiences locked jaws, the dental surgeon may use arthrocentesis procedure. It will involve anesthesia, following which the surgeon will insert needles into the affected area and wash out the joint. Special dental tools may be used to remove damaged tissue or resolve the stuck joint.

In some cases, the surgeon may use an arthroscope, which allows them to view the inside of the joint. This enables a more targeted and less invasive surgery. Patient can expect smaller scar, reduced risk of complications and a shorter recovery period. In exceptional cases, the surgeon may have to perform an open joint surgery, depending on the cause of TMJ.

Teeth represent a vital aesthetic component of the face, and define a person’s smile. In some cases, the teeth may be overcrowded, crooked, unevenly spaced, or having the problem of overbite or underbite. Such conditions can be corrected effectively by a cosmetic dentist with dental braces.

Studio Dentistry, led by Dr. Rob Strain, provides state of the art invisible braces solution to correct the appearance of teeth. With invisible braces such as Clear Correct or Invisalign, the oral aesthetics are not compromised during the course of treatment. Dr. Strain’s dental office receives patients from Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs, Palm Desert, and surrounding areas.

Clear Correct Aligners

Pre-eminent cosmetic dentist, Dr. Strain is a certified provider of Clear Correct aligners. This treatment employs a series of clear trays that are designed to gradually move the teeth in the desired position. It helps eliminate overcrowding of teeth and close unsightly gaps between teeth. Studio Dentistry has chose to work with Clear Correct rather than Invisalign due to their superior value for the patients.

If a particular case requires mid-course modifications to the original treatment goals, it is possible to do so with Clear Correct. Such modifications will usually be performed without any extra cost to the patient. Another benefit of Clear Correct is that Dr. Strain’s dental office obtains them at a more affordable cost from the manufacturer, and the cost savings are passed on to the patient.

Clear Correct also has an efficient online communication system that helps ensure that the treatment is progressing exactly as planned. Patients seeking clear braces treatment in Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs, Palm Desert, and surrounding areas may consider proven and advanced Clear Correct solution with Dr. Strain.

Clear Correct Treatment Aspects

Clear Correct treatment procedure includes four distinct phases of aligner therapy. In each treatment phase, the patient will be provided with a new, customized set of aligners that are required to be worn for a period of three weeks. The time gap between each phase allows for better flexibility and control. The patient is required to wear the Clear Correct aligners all the time, except when brushing or flossing, or while eating, or drinking.

The aligners are barely noticeable, comfortable to wear, and do not impact the daily routine of the patient. As the patient uses each set of aligners, the results will start becoming visible. The teeth will gradually adjust and align in the desired way to provide an attractive smile. Periodic reviews with the dentist will be scheduled to monitor progress and provide the next set of aligners.

This process will continue until the patient has achieved their new, desirable smile. The total treatment duration may range between one and two years, depending on the amount of correction required in a particular case.

Who can Receive Clear Correct Treatment?

Both teenagers and adults may be suitable candidates to receive Clear Correct treatment. If a child does not have all the molars, or an adult with a more complicated case of misaligned teeth may also be terrific candidates, but they must consult with the dentist for an appropriate combination of treatments.
