TMJ Treatment in Elgin
If you experience pain, clicking sounds, and other irregular jaw symptoms, you might suffer from Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJD). Commonly called TMJ, this is a condition characterized by pain in the jaw and surrounding tissues and, in some cases, limitations in jaw movements. Not all causes are known. Some possible causes that our TMJ dentist can treat and diagnose are:
• Injuries to the jaw area
• Various forms of arthritis
• Some dental treatments
• Grinding teeth during your sleep
• Imbalances with your genes and/or hormones
• Autoimmune diseases
Research has shown that TMJ patients are hypersensitive to pain, which may explain why they may also have other chronic pain conditions. Talk to us or make a dentist appointment in our Elgin, Illinois, clinic to learn about stress-reducing techniques that can reduce the pressure of TMJ.
