Relieve Jaw Pain With TMJ Treatment in Hilliard, OH
If you have an aching jaw, TMJ treatment from Just Smiles can relieve your pain. Dr. Mark Levy, a nationally recognized expert in TMJ disorders, regularly consults with patients at our Hilliard, OH dentist office. These disorders are often linked to teeth grinding, bite problems, and other dental issues. With his extensive training, Dr. Levy can determine the root cause of your TMJ disorder and treat it with a custom-made dental appliance or nightguard.Dr. Breanne Bleakmore on night guards that can help with teeth grinding
Compared to other types of treatment, they are:
- More Affordable – They cost less than orthodontics, dental restorations, or surgery, which are among the alternative treatments for TMJ disorders.
- Non-Invasive – Unlike some other treatments, they don’t require modifying your teeth. Their effects can be easily reversed simply by discontinuing their use.
To schedule a consultation with Dr. Levy, call Just Smiles at 614-215-9089.
End Unpleasant TMJ Symptoms With Treatment
Behaviors such as clenching your jaw or grinding teeth (bruxism) are often associated with TMJ pain. We can relieve unpleasant symptoms associated with these behaviors, including:
- Jaw pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Difficulty chewing or even opening your mouth
- Facial swelling
A mouthguard also prevents chips, cracks, and other dental damage that can result from grinding your teeth. If you’re experiencing any of these TMJ symptoms, call us ASAP so we can help you feel better.
Get a Customized Oral Appliance
You can purchase an oral appliance from drugstores or even online, but it’s not a good idea. A one-size-fits-most appliance that’s not made just for you may actually worsen your TMJ symptoms. In addition, there is a confusing variety of them available. With Dr. Levy’s expertise, you’ll get the right one for your specific situation. We even use a digital scanner to take the impressions of your teeth that are used to make your appliance, so the process is faster and more comfortable for you.
