TMJ Treatment Oxnard, CA

TMJ TherapyAn Overview

TMJ disorder is a chronic pain condition that afflicts the temporomandibular joint. While there is no one cause or fix all treatment for TMJ, restorative dentist Dr. Georgia Haddad is highly trained and experienced in bite analysis to help pinpoint a patient’s unique cause of discomfort.

TMJ can be caused by grinding of the teeth, excessive clenching of the jaw or an injury or trauma to the joint or muscle.   Some patients also experience chronic jaw pain due to crooked teeth or a misaligned bite.

Signs & Symptoms of TMJ

The Effects of TMJ

Left untreated, patients with TMJ may experience damage to their teeth and gums associated with the effects of TMJ. Many patients with TMJ grind or clench their teeth causing excessive wear and potentially chips or cracks. These initially minor dental concerns could progress and lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. Patients with TMJ  often experience chronic headaches and facial pain that can begin to interefere with the quality of their lives. Treating TMJ can help protect the health of the teeth and gums as well as relieve chronic headaches and pain.

TMJ Treatment Options

  • Oral Sleep Device: For patients who grind or clench their teeth Dr. Haddad may recommend an oral sleep appliance. An OSA is similar to a sports mouthguard. Made of hard soft plastic the device is discreet and comfortable to wear. The OSA will be custom fit to your teeth for a secure fit. The device is worn during sleep to prevent the jaw from grinding and to protect the teeth and gums from further damage.
  • Invisalign & Orthodontics: Patients who have TMJ symptoms due to crooked or misaligned teeth Dr. Haddad may recommend Invisalign or Orthodontics to straighten teeth. Many patients find relief from their TMJ once their bite has been realigned. Dr. Haddad offers all inclusive in-house Orthodontic and Invisalign treatments.
  • Cosmetic Dentistry: Some patients have a minor misalignment of the teeth that can be corrected with cosmetic dental treatments. Dental veneers, dental crowns, and bonding can be used for the correction of minor misalignment.
