WHAT ARE TMJ/TMD TREATMENTS?
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the spot where your jaw connects to your skull to enable you to close and open your jaw smoothly. Sometimes, the temporomandibular joint is injured or damaged, resulting in a debilitating condition called temporomandibular joint disorder or dysfunction (TMD). If you are experiencing pain or hearing noises when you move your jaw, then schedule an appointment with Dr. Tracy Provenghi to get a diagnosis and learn whether you would benefit from therapeutic injection treatments. This treatment at our El Paso, TX dental office works by temporarily relaxing the jaw muscles, helping to decrease teeth grinding and relieve the symptoms of TMD. Arrange an appointment with Dr. Tracy Provenghi to find out how we can help you.
HOW DO THERAPEUTIC TMJ/TMD TREATMENTS WORK?
To diagnose TMJ/TMD, Dr. Provenghi will listen to your symptoms and concerns before assessing your jaw for movement and signs of TMJ, such as clicking, popping, facial pain or tenderness, and tooth sensitivity. Oral x-rays or a bite analysis might also be performed to check for underlying causes of TMJ. For patients receiving therapeutic injections, the treatment can be conveniently done in our El Paso, TX office. A needle will be used for placement of the injections into specific regions of your jaw, which is quick and only involves minimal pain, like a pinprick sensation. After your treatment, you can get right back to your day. For most people, the results of these injections last up to four months. Dr. Provenghi will let you know how often you might want to plan follow-up treatments based on your needs.
