TMJ & TMD

Common TMJ Disorder Symptoms

Dealing with jaw pain in Bellflower is not always the same for everyone, especially the symptoms

Jaw pain can get in the way of several of your everyday tasks, especially if you have TMJ disorder, or Temporomandibular joint disorder. But how do you know if you have TMJ? You can start by recognizing if you have any of the following symptoms: jaw popping or clicking, headaches, migraines, earaches, ringing in your ears, neck pain, difficulty chewing, or a locking jaw. You don’t have to be experiencing all of these symptoms, but if you have several, it may be a sign you have TMJ. If this is the case, our team at Bellflower Dental Group can help! Our experienced team of dental professionals can get you in for an examination and introduce you to the treatment options that are right for you. For a consultation, call us to schedule an appointment.

What Is the Temporomandibular Joint?

Treating TMJ and jaw pain in Bellflower is easier when you understand the disorder

In order to get TMJ relief, it is important that you understand the basics of your disorder and the treatment. The Temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects your jaw to your skull, which allows you to move it around freely. However, if you have TMD, you are unable to do so, and instead feel a pain in your jaw while experiencing popping, clicking, or even locking of the joint. There are several different TMD causes that may be attributing to your pain, such as the alignment of your teeth. If teeth alignment is the case, we have a few options for treatment to help get your teeth aligned to relieve your TMJ pain, like Invisalign. We can also provide Botox injections for relaxing your jaw muscles, nighttime appliances, and corrective jaw surgery for treating TMD in Bellflower. It is also important to recognize some things you can do on your own to help eliminate the pain temporarily. Those who suffer with TMJ disorder often clench or grind the teeth together, which can make your disorder worse. You can take over-the-counter pain medications such as aspirin or Tylenol to help with the pain, or you can apply a heating pad to the area and eat a soft food diet. Each TMD case is different, so it takes proper examination by a professional to find the cause of your pain, and also to suggest the correct mode of treatment. If you are having trouble with jaw pain in Bellflower, please give us a call, so we can get your TMJ treatment started as soon as possible.

    This dental group surpasses my expectations! Amazing staff! My experience at Bellflower Dental Group was outstanding. Get bored during waiting? Don't worry! You can kill time by watching a movie in their comfy, amazing movie theater, or even get a massage! They even give out free cookies! I always have fun just by waiting for my name to be called. I highly recommend this dental group. I come to them for my braces, their ortho is incredible, the highlight of this dental group. The staff is amazing, their employees are so kind and take the time to perfect your braces.

    I love this dental office!

    Rosa V.
    I love this dental office! I have been coming here for years. It is a one-stop-shop! You can get your x-rays, cleaning, braces, labs, dentures, toothbrushes, and more all right here. They offer a movie room, 15 minute massages, child care, coffee, tea, and snacks! The weekends included face painting and balloon art for the kids. The staff is great, and they try to work with you if you need a payment plan. I think most insurance carriers are accepted. Never had any issues with any of the work done here!
