TMJ Therapy – Plano, TX 

Relieving Jaw Pain For Good

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects to the base of the skull and allows you to open and close your mouth while eating and speaking. When working properly, you should experience no problems; however, when it becomes inflamed or injured, difficulties can arise. At Atlas Cosmetic & Family Dentistry of Plano, we want you to have a fully functional, pain-free smile, which is why we provide TMJ/TMD therapy. Known as TMJ dysfunction (TMD), you can develop bruxism, popping or locking jaw, as well as intense, debilitating pain. Call us if you are experiencing any of the symptoms and allow our team to improve your quality of life with TMJ therapy in Plano, TX.

Equilibration/ Occlusal Adjustments

Using equilibration or occlusal adjustments, we can realign your bite by adjusting the size of certain teeth or customized restoration. This can help to alleviate any pressure that is being applied to your jaw joints, as well as allow for proper functioning so that you experience no discomfort.

Occlusal Splints

Providing customized occlusal splints allows our team to help move your jaw into proper alignment. By wearing this clear oral appliance while you sleep, it not only protects your teeth from touching and causing worn enamel, but it also alleviates any pressure or strain placed on your jaw joints. The device is customized to fit comfortably inside your mouth and over time, will help to shift your jaw so that it functions correctly and in harmony with the rest of your oral and facial structures.
