The temporomandibular joints (TMJs) are the jaw joints. Disorders with these joints are very common. Some symptoms of TMJ disorders include:
– Discomfort in the jaw or face
– Clicking in the TMJs
– A crunching sound when you use your jaw joints
– A locking jaw
– Discomfort when you chew
– Ear pain, but no ear infection
– Ringing ears or a congested feeling
These symptoms occur more frequently in some patients than in others. Drs. Bennett and Bieneman are willing and able to work with your primary doctor and your dentist to diagnose your TMJ disorder and to deliver the best solution possible.
To meet the needs of each patient, our doctors offer several treatments for TMJ in Arvada, Colorado. Oral orthotics, or splints, are one of the most common treatments we offer. If this is the treatment for you, we will custom create your splints, which will be worn over the bottom teeth. Some patients also require night splints, which are used on the upper teeth.
