TMJ Treatment

“I am new in town and was referred to this dentist. I am so glad that I went here! The doctor is very knowledgeable and doesn’t try to push procedures that aren’t necessary. The entire staff were friendly and great during my visit.”

If you are living with complications caused by TMJ, the team at Abilene Dental Care is here for you. Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (or TMJ) is a term that describes pain or discomfort surrounding the joint and muscles in the jaw. It can be brought on by a physical injury or could occur from having misaligned teeth or an off bite. If left untreated, chronic symptoms can have a negative effect on one’s quality of life. 

TMJ can cause:

  • severe headaches
  • neck pain
  • ringing in the ears
  • clicking in the jaw
  • numbness or loss of sensation 
  • vertigo 
  • trouble sleeping 
  • difficulty or pain while chewing

If you have TMJ, you don’t have to suffer helplessly with chronic pain.

We offer treatment options that address the root issue, rather than simply masking the problem with pain medication. Call Abilene Dental Care at one of our two conveniently located Abilene, TX offices. We’ll work together to solve your TMJ troubles, so you can finally enjoy the comfort you deserve.
