TMJ TREATMENT Welcome to Stephens & Gatewood Dentistry, your personal family dentist with two locations in Spring, TX.
If you are living with complications caused by TMJ, the team at Stephens & Gatewood Dentistry is here for you. Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (or TMJ) is a term that describes pain or discomfort surrounding the joint and muscles in the jaw. It can be brought on by a physical injury or could occur from having misaligned teeth or an off bite. If left untreated, chronic symptoms can have a negative effect on your quality of life.
TMJ can cause:
- severe headaches
- neck pain
- ringing in the ears
- clicking in the jaw
- numbness or loss of sensation
- trouble sleeping
- difficulty or pain while chewing
If you have TMJ, you don’t have to suffer helplessly with chronic pain. We offer treatment options that address the root issue, rather than simply masking the problem with pain medication. Call Stephens & Gatewood Dentistry to schedule an appointment at one of our two conveniently located offices. We’ll work together, so you can finally enjoy the comfort you deserve.
