TMJ + Myofascial Pain
MD causes significant pain, as the discs wear down and bone becomes exposed. Symptoms include soreness of the area around the joints, pain while chewing or talkin g, facial pain, a clicking of the joints and—in severe cases—dislocation of the jaw, which locks in an open mouth position. If you are suffering with these symptoms, you should see your dentist. The disorder needs to be differentiated from other causes of facial pain.
We use a number of effective techniques to make your dental experience a calm and relaxing one, and conscious sedation is a preferred alternative for those who are nervous about dental care or those who want to have multiple dental procedures accomplished in one visit. You don’t find this approach everywhere, because it requires special attention and equipment– it’s one of the things that makes Smile Center unique.
