Gentle, Effective Treatment for TMJ In Raleigh, NC
Temporomandibular disorder, or TMD, describes a variety of conditions that affect the temporomandibular joint (the point where the jaw opens and closes). The disorder is characterized by pain and stiffness in the jaw, which naturally affects eating, talking and swallowing.
In most cases, the symptoms associated with TMD can be successfully treated to reduce or eliminate your discomfort completely. At Ashley Lloyd, DDS we utilize the latest technology available to provide safe, gentle and effective treatment for all of your TMD symptoms, including:
- Frequent headaches
- Jaw, face, neck and ear pain
- Ringing in the ears
- Swallowing difficulties
- Unexplained loose, worn or cracked teeth
- Difficulty opening and closing your mouth
Once you have been examined, a strategy for treating your condition and managing your pain can be developed. Sometimes a temporary change to a softer diet can reduce stress on the muscles and joints. Ice and/or moist heat can help relieve soreness and inflammation.
Dr. Lloyd will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan for your TMJ pain. The sooner you call the sooner you can feel the relief of TMJ treatment!
