Non-Surgical TMJ Treatments

Joint and Muscle Relief at Guerra Dental Health

Chronic headaches and facial pain are not normal. If you are experiencing daily discomfort, it’s time for a change.

If you have tenderness in the jaw, frequent headaches, or ringing in the ears, you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). There is relief right around the corner at Guerra Dental Health.

What is TMJ Disorder?

The temporomandibular joint is the foundation of the chewing joint. A bad bite or injury may cause problems with the joint and may lead to a wide range of painful symptoms.

At Guerra Dental Health, we would be pleased to assess the joint and help you choose the proper restorative approach for your oral health. We treat TMJ disorders with the whole picture in mind, instead of just providing a quick fix. We are committed to your long-term comfort and your future wellness.

Dr. Guerra will work with you until you can chew, eat, speak, smile, and laugh without discomfort again. He will provide you the attentive care you need to overcome the dysfunction and achieve total health.

TMJ Treatment at Guerra Dental Health May Include:

Occlusal equilibration | Adjusting the bite with dental restorations like crowns will protect the surrounding muscles from undue strain.
Custom TMJ splints | These appliances are custom-fit to your teeth, and will gradually eliminate the symptoms of TMD. Your appliance will adjust your bite and keep your jaw relaxed.
Scans and exams | A proper diagnosis of your unique TMJ disorder will allow us to provide effective treatment.
Lifestyle changes | Jaw exercises, relaxation techniques, and dietary changes can make a world of difference in your comfort levels. We will guide you through these changes and answer any questions you may have.

Our patients in the Metairie, LA, New Orleans, and surrounding areas can rely on us for customized care and TMJ relief. We keep treatment simple and affordable. We can give you the level of care you deserve—just give us a call today!
