While frequent headaches and jaw pain are two of the most common symptoms that prompt people to seek TMJ treatment in Silver Spring, Dr. Bikoi has seen patients with all different combinations of TMJ symptoms. There are highly effective, non-invasive, affordable TMJ treatment options available at Artistic Family Dentistry of Silver Spring.
Many people with TMJ disorder in Silver Spring often visit numerous doctors and dentists before finding one that can help them. We understand your frustration, and we have created a TMJ treatment environment that focuses on patient comfort, safety, and relaxation.
We offer these TMJ treatments:
Sometimes, simple lifestyle and habit changes can alleviate your TMJ symptoms. Dr. Bikoi and her TMJ treatment team will ask about your sleeping positions, pillows, mattresses, nighttime habits, use of caffeine and alcohol at night, etc. Gathering this information will allow Dr. Bikoi to determine what changes will be helpful.
Advanced TMJ technology allows us to monitor your jaw movements, which means we can pinpoint exactly where the problems lie. By tracking the sounds your jaws make and by watching your jaw move, we can discover alignment issues and other problems that contribute to the painful symptoms of TMJ.
You may be a great candidate for TENS therapy, which stands for Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation. This non-invasive treatment provides immediate relief to many patients by delivering electrical pulses to the affected areas via pads applied directly to the skin.
Mouth splints, also known as oral appliances, may be custom-made based on your bite. If you have malocclusion, which is a misaligned bite, we can design a bite splint that you’ll wear mainly at night to keep your teeth in the optimal position.
Restorative dentistry options are often helpful in treating TMJ. If certain teeth are affecting your bite, tooth extraction or some other type of dental procedure may solve the problem and allow your bite to be properly aligned.
Massage therapy is often recommended to relax the tense, stressed muscles around the Temporomandibular Joints.
As you can see, there are many ways our TMJ dentist, Dr. Bikoi, can ease your symptoms, align your bite, and help you get back to the life you once enjoyed prior to TMJ pain.
You need not suffer from the many painful symptoms of TMJ any longer. Please allow our Silver Spring TMJ dentist, Dr. Chantal Bikoi, to perform a comprehensive evaluation and then suggest ways to alleviate your symptoms.
