TMJ Treatment in Chelmsford
 
 
 

The TemperoMandibular Joint, better known as TMJ, is a ball and socket joint inside your jaw that allows all mouth movements to occur. Because they are the only two joints in your head, they are very sensitive. Problems with these joints can lead to extreme pain and discomfort, ultimately causing serious health problems. If you experience pain when moving your jaw, you may have an injured joint. TMJ does not only affect the specific joint, but the muscles, tendons and ligaments around them that allow your jaw to move. Because it is such a serious condition, you should seek help right away to prevent any future damage. Fortunately, Dr. Stylos is an expert in this field and can help relieve pain or symptoms associated with your TMJ. Call our office and learn how we can help.

Malocclusion
A “Bad Bite” can be one of the most painful and disguised dental problems surfacing today. Many patients suffering from teeth movement experience problems particularly when biting. This is called malocclusion, and is often linked with TMJ. A bad bite occurs when your jaw muscles are having difficulty performing tasks such as eating, speaking and generally moving.

Because these symptoms may occur in your sleep, it is important to talk to with us today so we can help design a treatment plan that will provide relief and give you back the ability to eat, chew and smile comfortably again. Dr. Stylos has the advance training that will make you confident that great dental comfort is now possible for you!

Bruxism/Grinding
Bruxism or “Grinding”, like other TMJ-related habits, affects all muscles in the mouth and jaw area. This disease is most often described by the phrase “gnashing or grinding of teeth” which includes incredible tooth pressure into the jaw. Though many people consider this a mild habit, it can lead to traumatic and damaging results if left untreated. Most often, this grinding of the teeth occurs at night, leaving patients unaware of how bad this self inflected damage may be.

If you experience pain in your ears, head, neck or jaw, as well as discomfort in any oral area, you may be experiencing the aftermath of night time bruxism. There are various treatments for those who have been unknowingly grinding their teeth. Depending on the severity of your case, you should speak with us about which option would be most effective and comfortable for you.

If the damage has already occurred, Dr. Stylos will have many options to correct the damage and prevent further damage from happening.
