Understanding TMJ Disorder

TMJ disorder is a complex condition that can have various causes, including jaw misalignment, teeth grinding, stress, arthritis, or injury to the jaw joint. The symptoms can range from mild to severe and may include jaw pain, headaches, earaches, facial pain, clicking or popping sounds in the jaw, and difficulty opening or closing the mouth. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s essential to seek professional evaluation and treatment to prevent further complications.

Comprehensive TMJ Evaluation

At our Bend, Oregon practice, we begin the TMJ disorder treatment process with a comprehensive evaluation. Dr. Kelley Mingus will perform a thorough examination of your jaw joint, muscles, teeth, and bite to determine the underlying causes of your TMJ symptoms. We may also utilize advanced diagnostic tools, such as digital imaging or 3D scans, to get a detailed view of your jaw structure. This comprehensive evaluation allows us to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Personalized Treatment Options

Every patient is unique, and our approach to TMJ disorder treatment reflects that. We offer a range of personalized treatment options to address the underlying causes of your TMJ symptoms and promote long-term relief. These may include:

  1. Orthodontic Treatment: In cases where misalignment contributes to TMJ disorder, orthodontic solutions such as braces or clear aligners can help correct the bite and improve jaw function.
  2. Occlusal Splints or Oral Appliances: Custom-made occlusal splints or oral appliances can be used to relieve jaw muscle tension and reposition the jaw joint, reducing pain and improving overall jaw function.
  3. Bite Adjustments: If your TMJ disorder is caused by an improper bite, we may recommend bite adjustments to ensure proper alignment and reduce stress on the jaw joint.
  4. Physical Therapy: For some individuals, incorporating physical therapy exercises and techniques can help strengthen the jaw muscles, improve range of motion, and alleviate TMJ-related pain.
  5. Stress Management: Stress can contribute to TMJ disorder symptoms. Our team can provide guidance on stress management techniques and strategies to minimize its impact on your jaw health.
