Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint where your jaw meets your skull. When you smile, eat, talk, or do just about anything with your mouth, you are exercising the muscles located there.

Chronic dental grinding (bruxism) puts an enormous amount of pressure on your jaw joints; this can result in temporomandibular disorder. Even patients who do not have bruxism, can develop TMD when their muscles are inflamed or their bites are poorly aligned.

If suffer from TMJ Disorder you may deal with:

  • Jaw soreness or pain

  • Migraines
  • Popping/clicking sensation in the jaw
  • Limited jaw mobility
  • Neck pain/stiffness

Effective Non-Surgical Solutions

Our office treats the root of TMD—not just the symptoms—using unobtrusive, non-surgical options. We can often treat TMD symptoms by simply altering the bite with a MAGO splint. This thin, clear plastic retainer fits over your upper teeth, and allows your jaw muscles can relax in a healthy position.

Because Dr. Vareldzis is trained in bioesthetic dentistry, he takes a holistic approach to dentistry that includes relief from TMJ-related pain. He understands how your teeth, jaw joints, and nerves are interconnected, and this allows him to design a treatment plan that is structurally sound.
