TMJ Treatment Flower Mound, TX

Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) are bite disorders caused by an injury, imbalance, or stress on the TMJ. The temporomandibular joints are the joints that connect the skull and the jawbone. These joints can create pain in the jaw and face if patients develop TMD.

Our office provides restorative dental care and TMJ treatment for patients in Flower Mound, TX. TMJ treatment can address tooth wear, jaw pain, headaches, and other symptoms of TMD.

Signs of TMJ Disorders

Some of the most common symptoms of TMD to look out for include: 

  • Teeth clenching and grinding (bruxism)
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Tooth pain and wear
  • Jaw pain
  • A change in how the teeth fit together
  • Ear pain
  • Pain when eating hard foods

Contact our office if you think you may have TMD; we will examine your smile to find the right treatment for your needs. We will take dental X-rays to examine your teeth, gums, and jaw and find areas of wear in your smile.

TMJ Treatment in Flower Mound, TX

We can create custom-made nightguards for patients who experience bruxism. Up to 1 in 3 Americans suffers from bruxism or unconscious teeth grinding while sleeping. This can wear down enamel and even lead to broken teeth! Wearing a customized nightguard protects the tooth enamel from wear and alleviates pain and pressure on the jaw.

Xeomin can also benefit patients who experience orofacial pain and headaches due to TMD. Like Botox, Xeomin is an injectable treatment containing botulinum toxin type A, which relaxes the muscle.

When injected into key areas of the face, Xeomin can lessen jaw pain, headaches, migraines, and other painful symptoms of TMD. Xeomin lasts three to six months and can have quick effects on patients. Many patients who receive Xeomin treatments notice a reduction in their symptoms.
