TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, and we are here to help you with any problems associated with it.
This joint is the hinge that connects the jaw to the skull and allows you to talk, chew, and yawn. When trauma or misalignment affects the joint, you may develop a TMJ disorder, which we are happy to treat at the office of Eric Goldberg, DDS. The treatments we provide and suggest may include:
• Taking prescribed medications
• Wearing a splint or night guard
• Utilizing dental work
• Taking over-the-counter medications
• Using hot or cold packs
• Eating soft foods
• Avoiding large jaw movements
• Keeping your teeth apart
• Learning relaxation techniques
• Refraining from resting your chin on your hand
These are both in-office and take-home treatments, and we are happy to help you in any way possible. We invite you to come in and see us if you have pain or tenderness in the face, problems opening your jaw, and swelling on the side of your face. Dr. Eric Goldberg also wishes to see you as soon as possible if you have a clicking, grating, or popping sound when you open your mouth and you also have trouble chewing or biting. This disorder is also associated with toothaches, headaches, dizziness, neck aches, and ear problems.
