Understanding TMJ Disorders 

Temporomandibular Joint Disorders encompass a range of issues affecting the jaw joint and the muscles controlling jaw movement. Symptoms vary but often include jaw pain, difficulty in chewing, clicking or locking of the jaw, and sometimes even headaches or ear pain. These symptoms can significantly impact daily life, making diagnosis and treatment crucial. The causes of TMJ disorders are diverse, including factors such as teeth grinding (bruxism), arthritis in the joint, injuries to the jaw, or even stress, which can lead to muscle tension and jaw clenching.

Comprehensive TMJ Diagnosis at Stephen Cheung DDS

Our Approach to TMJ Diagnosis and Treatment

At our clinic, diagnosing TMJ disorders begins with a thorough examination of your jaw and a review of your medical history. We may use advanced imaging techniques to get a detailed view of your jaw structure. This comprehensive approach helps us create a treatment plan tailored to your specific condition.

Treatment options vary depending on the severity and cause of your TMJ disorder. We often start with conservative approaches, such as physical therapy, oral appliances (like bite guards), and advice on lifestyle modifications that can alleviate symptoms. Stress management techniques can also be beneficial, as stress often exacerbates TMJ symptoms.

In cases where these methods are not sufficient, we may explore more advanced treatments. These can include medication for pain and inflammation, or in some cases, minimally invasive procedures. Surgery is considered only as a last resort and is reserved for severe TMJ cases where other treatments have not provided relief.
