What is TMJ?

TMJ – Plymouth

You woke with a headache again, squinted your way to the bathroom and popped a few aspirins. You know they won’t really help relieve the pounding in your head, the ache in your jaw and the stiffness in your neck, but you have to try something. How else will you get through yet another day of pain? If this sound sfamiliar, you may be dealing with TMJ disorder, a common disease afflicting millions of Americans.

What Causes TMJ Disorder?

Often TMJ disorder or TMD originates with a bad bite or a lack of harmony in the way your teeth come together. It can be a result of an accident or other trauma, stress, clenching, or even poorly balanced dental work.

What Can Plymouth Station Dental do to Help?

Dr. Fitzsimmons uses the principles of Centric Relation to help relax your jaw muscles and move your bite back into its ideal position.

This process starts with a specially made bite appliance to relax your muscles and create an artificially perfect bite. Once your bite has relaxed into the proper position, we will use a variety of methods to keep your jaw comfortable, relaxed and in the ideal position.
