Your jaw is attached and functions through a specific muscle and joint—the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). And just like other muscles within your body, the TMJ muscle can become sore or inflamed if it is overworked or damaged. When this happens, patients experience TMJ disorder (TMD), which is characterized by jaw pain, clicking or grinding sounds, frequent headaches or even trouble opening or closing the jaw. At the Dental Arts Studio of Cape Cod, we offer effective TMJ treatment to treat these concerns and improve your overall quality of life.
Our TMJ treatment in Chatham and Orleans can involve one or more advanced procedures designed to realign or adjust your jaw. We always begin our TMJ treatment with an in-depth examination of your mouth, head and neck to fully determine the optimal position your jaw should be in. Our TMJ treatments are minimally invasive and are always aimed at relieving your jaw pain and restoring your mouth to proper oral function.
