TMJ & TMD Treatment

Have you experienced jaw or facial pain? The jaw or temporomandibular (TMJ) joint can be susceptible to injury or disease, causing jaw pain and dysfunction. TMJ disorders, or TMD, may be painful and impact your quality of life. As part of our general dentistry treatments at Majestic Smile Studio, we offer TMJ and TMD treatment at our state-of-the-art dental center in Yorba Linda, CA.

TMJ disorders can occur for a wide variety of reasons. The jaw joint is very strong, but it is also under excessive stress from chewing, clenching and other strain. Repetitive stress from bruxism (teeth grinding) and other actions can damage the tendons and cause TMD. Misaligned bites or missing teeth can put stress on the jaw joint. Diseases like arthritis can also cause jaw joint damage.

Symptoms of TMD

If you have injury or damage to the jaw joint, you may experience a wide variety of localized and radiating symptoms. Some of the most common symptoms of TMJ disorders include:

  • Jaw or facial pain
  • Clicking, popping or grinding when opening the mouth
  • Locking jaw
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Earaches

The jaw ligament, tendons and muscles can be damaged due to stress or strain. The joint can become inflamed, making it stiff and dysfunctional. If you have symptoms of TMD, there are treatments that can provide pain relief and improve the function of the jaw joint.

Relief for TMJ Symptoms

TMJ and TMD treatment depends on what is causing the dysfunction in the jaw. In some cases, it is due to a misaligned bite or tooth problems that are putting excess stress on the joints. By fixing dental issues, this can relieve jaw pain. Treatment for bruxism can also provide relief for TMD. Wearing a nightguard can prevent teeth grinding or jaw clenching that occur at night and contribute to TMD.

If you have symptoms of TMD and want jaw pain relief, contact our team at Majestic Smile Studio. We can schedule a TMJ exam and treatment consultation. Call our clinic in the Anaheim and Yorba Linda, CA, area to book your TMD appointment.

The best dentist I've ever been to, this place is awesome ! As everyone knows, going to a dental office typically isn't a celebratory and pleasant event! However, my experience here changed my outlook on dentistry for the better. Nicole the office manager was very kind and set the appointment for me even though I had to be back to my office by 9 AM and I needed to have an appointment closer to 7 AM, she moved things around and accommodate me and promised I won’t be late to work. Veronica(who administered the X-rays and assisted Dr. Gutierrez) was thorough, kind, and very knowledgeable, which was a great start. Then Dr. Gutierrez came in to conduct the examination and assess what work needed to be performed. The sincerity she exhibited for my well being was admirable and her exceptional skill became immediately evident. I've been to several of the top dentists in Southern California, and this was by far the most impressive experience. Their price point was reasonable, the building was quite nice, and the level of care is top notch. In addition, the hygienist Stephanie was fantastic. She approached your cleaning with the perfect balance of gentleness and rigorousness. The photo studio for before and after pictures was very useful for me to see the huge difference. If you need a new dentist, this is the place. They've gained a lifelong patient in me! I hate going to the dentist. Not because I'm scared, but because I despise mouth and dental related pains. I don’t have high tolerance for pain, dental pain for whatever reason is 10 times more, but I did full sets of veneers and didn’t feel any pain! I highly recommend Majestic Smile Studio and Dr. Gutierrez and her team.
