Franklin Square, NY (PRWEB) November 21, 2016
In honor of TMJ Awareness Month, the doctors at Clock Tower Dental Associates are now accepting new patients, including those without referrals, to their practice for temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD, treatment. If left unaddressed, TMD can result in jaw pain, joint mobility issues, teeth grinding and other harmful complications. To help patients prevent these outcomes, the doctors offer numerous forms of tailored temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, treatment in Franklin Square, NY.
TMD is a condition that occurs when the function of the jaw joint becomes compromised. This disorder may develop due to various oral health problems, including bite misalignment and teeth grinding. The National Institute of Health estimates that as many as 10 million people in the U.S. suffer from TMD. Common symptoms include jaw pain, joint tension, mobility issues such as “lock jaw,” headaches and pain in nearby areas, such as the face, neck and shoulders. Sufferers of TMD may also experience difficulty speaking, yawning, chewing or fully opening the mouth.
The multi-specialty team at Clock Tower Dental Associates can minimize or alleviate many of these symptoms with TMJ treatment in Franklin Square, NY. The doctors offer several treatments to prevent teeth grinding, address bite misalignment or correct other issues that may contribute to this condition. These include splints, night guards and occlusal adjustment, which is a procedure to allow the teeth to fit more smoothly together. The doctors also use cortisone shots to actively reduce the jaw pain, inflammation and stiffness that is associated with TMD.
