What is TMJ disorder?
TMJ Disorder can be treated through safe, nonsurgical treatments that often permanently solve the issue, so no one has to suffer TMJ disorder or its myriad of side effects. Surgery should only be recommended as a last resort.
Treatment for TMJ disorder is very patient specific and the exact cause of the disorder should be determined. Here at Harley Street Dental Studio, our experts will review your symptoms and examine your teeth, including tooth wear, restorations and position, your gums for their health and your bite and bite movements.
Treatments often start with a hard bite guard (known as a bite splint) to allow your jaw and teeth to find a more balanced and natural position. Once this is achieved, and your symptoms have resolved, a more definitive treatment can be completed for a more permanent solution.
This can include orthodontics (teeth straightening), building up, restoring the teeth or a combination of these. We can also offer neuromuscular dentistry, which focuses on the position of the jaw, teeth and the tissues surrounding it.
Treatment for your TMJ disorder is usually handled by one of our specialist prosthodontists or directors.
