TMJ disorders, or temporomandibular joint disorders, can cause a variety of symptoms that affect the jaw, face, and head. These symptoms can be debilitating and can greatly impact a person’s quality of life. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, it’s worth scheduling a free consultation to see if you may have a TMJ disorder and to explore treatment options, including Multi-Locked Wavelength Laser Therapy (MLS).
One of the most common symptoms of TMJ disorders is jaw pain or discomfort.
This can range from a dull ache to a sharp, stabbing pain, and can be felt in the jaw joint, the muscles around the jaw, or the side of the face. People with TMJ disorders may also experience difficulty or pain when biting, chewing or speaking.
Headaches and migraines are also common symptoms associated with TMJ disorders.
These can be caused by the muscles in the jaw, face, and head being overworked due to the jaw joint not functioning properly. Additionally, people with TMJ disorders may experience pain or tenderness in the ears, which can be mistaken for an ear infection.
Tinnitus or ringing in the ears can also be a symptom of TMJ disorders.
This is because the jaw joint and the ear canal are connected, and when the jaw joint is not functioning properly, it can affect the ear canal. Also, people with TMJ disorders may also experience neck pain, shoulder pain or back pain as their discomfort may lead to muscle tension and spasms in the surrounding areas.
Now coming to the treatment, Multi-Locked Wavelength Laser Therapy (MLS) is a new and effective treatment option for people suffering from TMJ disorders. It is a painless and non-invasive treatment that uses a laser to reduce inflammation and promote healing in the jaw joint. At Moore Dental Care, we diagnose and create a therapy plan tailored to the patient’s needs. Treatment means long-term pain relief, improved jaw function and an overall improvement in quality of life.
It’s important to note that TMJ disorders can be caused by a variety of factors, such as injury, arthritis, or teeth grinding, and treatment will vary depending on the underlying cause. However, MLS laser therapy is a new and promising treatment option that can be used to help alleviate symptoms and improve the overall function of the jaw joint. If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, call us today to schedule your free consultation and explore your treatment options.
