TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction)
Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome (TMD) is a common condition affecting a wide variety of people. TMJD is characterized by severe headaches, jaw pain of varying degrees, grinding teeth, and an intermittent ringing in the ears. The vast majority of TMD sufferers are unaware that the root cause of these problems is something that a dentist can effectively treat.
The symptoms of TMD are debilitating and can greatly interfere with every day life. The comfort and general well being of the patient is at the heart of the dental practice, so pain relief is the first consideration of the dentist. The dentist is able to test, diagnose, and devise an immediate plan to treat the underlying causes of the TMD disorder.
Reasons for treating TMD
TMD sufferers report that their symptoms generally worsen during periods of prolonged or unexpected stress, and that intense outbreaks of the condition can lead to neck pain and dizziness.
One common cause of TMD is the misalignment of the teeth, often called “bad bite.” It is possible for the dentist to realign or adjust the teeth without the need for painful or expensive surgeries. The realignment/adjustment may stop headaches, the jaw pain, and the dizziness.
It is important for anyone experiencing the symptoms of TMD to visit Brammer Dental for an exact diagnosis.
