Feel Better With Our Jaw Joint Treatment

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) are situated on either side of your head and connect your jaw to your skull. When these joints are working normally, you probably don’t pay much attention to them. However, they can become irritated and inflamed, causing you a great deal of pain. Researchers don’t fully understand the causes of TMJ disorders (TMD), however they do know that teeth grinding is both a cause of and a symptom of TMD.

A custom oral appliance from Kirchner Dental will:

  • Relieve tension on your TMJs
  • Allow your jaw and face to feel better
  • Stop teeth grinding that can require restorative dentistry to repair

Some patients will also benefit from Invisalign orthodontics to correct bite issues. If your bite is misaligned, you may have a tendency to grind your teeth, especially while sleeping when you’re not even aware it’s happening. Dr. Kirchner will evaluate your needs to see if you will benefit from an oral appliance, Invisalign, or another type of TMJ treatment.

Our team wants you to feel better soon! Call Kirchner Dental today at 812-884-8304 to schedule an appointment for TMJ treatment in New Albany. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Will insurance pay for my TMJ treatment?

Your insurance may pay for part of your TMJ treatment. We can help determine what your plan will and won’t cover and what your portion of the cost may be. Keep in mind that we offer financing options to help pay for your treatment. We work with CareCredit, which has low-interest payment plans.

Is TMJ causing my headaches?

It’s possible, yes. Inflammation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can lead to pain in the surrounding muscles of the head and neck, which can be misinterpreted as migraines. By wearing a mouthguard, you can alleviate the pain caused by TMJ inflammation and potentially experience relief from headaches.

What are the signs of a TMJ disorder?

Signs of a TMJ disorder may include jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds when chewing, difficulty opening the mouth completely, facial pain, headaches, and ear pain or ringing. Some people may also experience neck and shoulder pain or toothaches unrelated to dental problems. Also, your jaw may feel locked or stuck. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to visit our practice for help.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

We understand you want to end the pain caused by a TMJ disorder as soon as you can. The truth is that treatment can take weeks or months depending on the severity of your situation and what needs to be done. For most patients, an oral appliance is the perfect solution in and of itself. For others, orthodontics or restorations may be needed to realign teeth to reduce grinding for the long term.
