Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ) Treatment at Smiles of Lombard
Welcome to Smiles of Lombard, your trusted destination for effective Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ) treatments. Our dedicated team, led by seasoned dental professionals, is committed to alleviating your TMJ symptoms with personalized care.
Understanding TMJ Disorders
TMJ disorders impact the temporomandibular joint, which connects your jaw to your skull. Symptoms often include jaw pain, difficulty chewing, and clicking or locking of the jaw. These can be caused by various factors, such as injuries, arthritis, genetics, or teeth grinding.
Do you or your loved ones experience headaches, earaches, neck pain, jaw pain, shoulder/arm pain, tinnitus, hearing loss, vertigo, or jaw locking? These are common indicators of TMJ disorders.
Our Comprehensive Approach
We begin with a detailed examination of your jaw and bite, complemented by advanced diagnostic tools. Our treatment options are tailored to your needs and may include:
Oral Appliances: Custom-made devices like night guards to alleviate jaw pressure and prevent teeth grinding.
Physical Therapy: Exercises and techniques to strengthen and relax jaw muscles.
Stress Management* Strategies to manage stress that may worsen TMJ symptoms.
Advanced Treatments: We offer the Urbanek TMJ device (U.S. PAT #9314320, FDA Cleared), which has shown significant success in reducing TMJ symptoms without surgery or drugs. Most patients experience an average of 85% to 95% reduction in symptoms. This device is well-tolerated, increasing compliance and success.
