Is your mouth receiving the care it needs to thrive? The joints in your jaw, the temporomandibular joints, also called TMJs, are required for proper mouth function. If your TMJs become damaged, they must be cared for with TMJ treatments.

Create an improved oral health identity with TMJ treatments. If your oral health care requires TMJ treatments, remember the following:

– Your TMJ disorder could be begun by another underlying disorder such as bruxism. If you are automatically grinding and clenching your teeth at night, additional stress and pressure will be placed on your jaw.
– Meditation systems including yoga, calming music, and biofeedback are excellent stress relievers that can alleviate jaw pressure.
– Many foods and habits can lead to additional wear and tear on your jaw and lead to damage with your TMJs, including routines like nail-biting, chewing gum, or rough or chewy foods such as steak.
– Joint pain connected to TMJ disorders can be alleviated with heat or ice packs.
