Do you suffer from chronic pain in your jaw, head, neck, or shoulders? Does your jaw produce an odd clicking sound when you chew or yawn? It is possible that you are suffering from a condition called temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ dysfunction. At the office of Dr. Paul V. Caputo in Naperville, IL, our team offers comprehensive treatment of TMJ/TMD with general dentistry solutions that fit your lifestyle, alleviating your pain and preventing further damage.
Treating TMJ: Finally, Relief from Constant Pain
For many patients suffering from TMJ disorder, the pain they feel on a regular basis remains unidentified until they finally seek treatment from their doctor. The fact is, however, that a dentist is the best source of effective TMJ treatment, as the problem stems from underlying issues with the dentition and the jaw.
In cases of TMJ disorder, the components of the delicate temporomandibular joint (the joint that connects your jaw to your cranium) become irritated. Nerves, muscles, and ligaments in this area can cause pain throughout the head, neck, and shoulders as well. Treatment with a customized oral appliance can help properly align your jaw to prevent the pain in the first place. If your TMJ problems are due to an irregularity or injury to the jaw or teeth, we can address this issue as well. We want you to feel your best, and we’ll always take the time to discuss your individual symptoms and concerns with you at your consultation.
