Newport Beach TMJ Treatment

Schedule an Appointment with Our TMJ Dentist Today

If you are worried that you suffer from TMJ, you will need to schedule an appointment with a dentist familiar with treating the disorder, as you will need to be formally diagnosed before treatment can begin. Treatment for TMJ varies depending on your individual situation and needs and your experience is likely to be very different than the next person’s. Our dentist in Newport Beach has extensive experience treating TMJ and can answer any questions you may have. As a conservative practice, we take a patient-focused approach and we will be sure that you understand all of your treatment options so that you can feel confident making medical decisions.

To discuss your needs with our TMJ dentist in Newport Beach, call (949) 247-8484.

What Is TMJ?

“TMJ” stands for “temporomandibular joint,” which is the bone structure, muscles, and connective tissues in the jaw. This joint controls chewing. If you suffer from a disorder associated with this joint, it is referred to as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).

Symptoms of TMD include:

  • Pain in the jaw
  • Tenderness in the jaw
  • Popping or clicking when speaking or chewing

Treatment for TMJ disorders can vary, and at Luminous Smiles, we typically begin with more conservative treatments, including lifestyle adjustments, physical therapy, and bite guards. If your situation warrants it, you might also be prescribed medication to relax the jaw or to relieve any pain you may be experiencing as a result of your disorder. If a patient doesn’t respond to these more conservative treatments, further options, such as surgery or joint injections, can be explored.
