Our dentists are skilled professionals who can offer treatment for clients suffering from jaw pain. When you come for an examination, we are going to utilize modern techniques to get to the root cause of your jaw pain. We always start with the correct diagnosis of the condition before we start treatment. The correct diagnosis of your dental or jaw condition will be important in personalizing your treatment plan. This will go a long way in providing effective and lasting relief.
Bruxism is the grinding and clenching of teeth while sleeping. People who grind their teeth often report having jaw pain. When we diagnose that you are suffering from bruxism, we can provide you with a custom-made nightguard that will help you prevent the grinding or gnashing of teeth. This way you will have reduced chances of getting jaw pain for the teeth and jaws will be protected from harm.
Your jaw pain may also be caused by facial trauma particularly if you are engaged in a contact sport. If that is the case, we can use X-ray images that will reveal the extent of your injury and devise a treatment plan that can involve surgery. In this way, we can correct the issue to ensure that the injury that is causing the jaw pain is treated. The facial trauma will make you have jaw pain and our dental team will have a treatment plan for you to ensure that your facial structure and jaw remains healthy at all times.
