We Offer More Than One Way to Address TMJ Pain

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) connect your jaw to your skull. They move when you perform common activities like talking and eating. If these joints become inflamed or irritated, they can cause you quite a bit of pain. In some cases, your jaw can even lock into place, making it difficult to open or close your mouth.

While some dentists rely only on standard TMJ mouthguards to treat their patients, Dr. Condie also offers other treatments to help with your discomfort. He and our team have been treating TMJ patients for years, and over that time we have accumulated a great deal of valuable experience. For eliminating pain and helping our patients feel better, we offer:

  • TMJ Mouthguards – This is the classic treatment that works well for many patients. We can have a custom-fitted TMJ appliance made that will sit comfortably in your mouth while you sleep. It will move your lower jaw forward slightly to relieve tension on your TMJs. As a result, your jaw joints can begin to heal and your jaw will feel better. The appliance will also prevent harmful teeth grinding that can damage your tooth enamel.
  • K7 Neuromuscular Evaluation System – Depending on your situation and symptoms, Dr. Condie may recommend using the K7 Evaluation System. This advanced technology allows us to create 3-D images of your jaw when opening and closing. With these images, we can analyze how your bite aligns and how your jaw should be adjusted. We’ll make an appliance to stabilize your jaw muscles and eliminate your TMJ symptoms.
  • TENS Therapy – TENS stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. With this type of therapy, we’ll send low-frequency electrical currents to specific areas of your jaw muscles. This will stimulate the nerve pathways and help relax these muscles. As a result your TMJ symptoms will diminish.

At your initial consultation and exam, Dr. Condie will cover these treatments in more detail and make recommendations to help you get the relief you need.
