Headache? Jaw Pain? Find Relief with TMJ Treatment in Tuscaloosa

Headache? Jaw Pain? Find Relief with TMJ Treatment in Tuscaloosa

You woke up again this morning with a headache, stiff neck and aching jaw. Yet doctor after doctor has told you that nothing is wrong with you or that you are just experiencing stress. Your problem could be temporomandibular joint disease (also known as TMD or TMJ), a problem that is that is often ignored or misdiagnosed.

What are the Symptoms of TMJ Disorder?

While symptoms vary from individual to individual, some of the most common symptoms of TMJ disorder are:

  • Headaches or migraines
  • Stiffness or soreness in the neck, shoulders and back
  • Tingling of the fingertips
  • Insomnia
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Clenching or grinding
  • Dizziness
  • Ear congestion
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Limited mouth opening

What Can Riverview Dental Designs do to Help My TMJ Pain?

A complex set of factors affect your TMJ health – your teeth, your muscles and your temporomandibular joint. When these factors are not working in harmony, you will develop a structural imbalance that causes pain and puts stress on your jaw.

We can help TMJ patients find long-lasting relief from TMJ syndrome without the masking effects of painkillers. We generally treat our patients through splint therapy and Botox® treatments to correct your bite and relax your muscles – all without surgery or prescription drug therapy.

How Botox Treatments Can Help TMJ Disorder

When researchers discovered that injecting tiny amounts of Botox into overactive muscles could decrease muscle activity, they discovered something more than a way to stop wrinkles: they discovered an innovative, new way to treat pain and muscle spasms.

How? Because Botox paralyses muscles, their activity is decreased or limited. Even better because the affected muscles are relaxed, splint therapy is even more effective and can balance your bite for real relief.
