• TMJ/TMD Treatment Mundelein

Do you wake up with jaw pain or headaches? This can be the first warning that you have TMD. TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint, while TMD stands for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder although people regularly mix up the terms and use them interchangeably. The TMJ connects your lower jaw to your skull and is responsible for all of your mouth’s movements. This includes opening, closing, and chewing. When you have TMD, your TMJ becomes inflamed causing you pain and discomfort when moving your mouth. Fortunately, this is easily treatable from your dentist. At Michael Roessler DDS in Mundelein, IL, we provide our patients with diagnosis and treatment options for TMD.

Treatment for TMJ/TMD

Treatment options are out there and can be as simple as reducing the stress in your life. Your assessment will begin with Dr. Roessler examining your mouth, jaw, and muscle structure, followed by x-rays or an MRI if necessary. He will be looking for problems with your TMJ as well as be listening for any clicking/popping noises in your mouth. He will ask you to help him determine the cause of your TMD. It can be caused from stress, clenching/grinding your teeth at night, or an irregular bite. Your treatment will either be a mouth guard, or restorative work such as dental implants, bridges, crowns, or braces to fix your irregular bite. You can also take ibuprofen and use warm compresses to ease the pain. In some cases, surgery is needed to relieve the pain and cause of the problem.

See What Patients Are Saying About Michael Roessler

  • Dr. Roessler, It was hard to envision what dental work could do for my awful smile. After the metal braces, my teeth were straight but chipped and yellow. They were so ugly. After the caps were put on, my whole appearance changed. I finally had beautiful white perfectly shaped teeth. It looked like I took excellent care of my teeth my whole life. My personality changed. I talk and smile more now. Thank you to the team who created my new smile, Dr. Roessler, Dr. Burkey, and Dr. Vravick.
