What Causes TMJ Disorder (TMD/TMJD)?
TMD in Kinnelon can be caused by a variety of factors. Some of the most common include:
- Traumatic injuries
- Bone irregularities or disease
- Atypical bite alignment
- Unmanaged sleep apnea
Identifying the contributing factors to your jaw pain is the first step in addressing the discomfort. Working with a holistic neuromuscular dentist like Dr. Robert Logan in Kinnelon, New Jersey ensures you have access to a skilled provider who is capable of treating such complex joint disorders.
Non-Surgical Neuromuscular Dentistry
Experts agree that the best treatment for TMJ pain and disorder is a non-surgical approach to therapy that won’t result in irreversible changes to the joint. Rather, assessing how the anatomical structures align and work with one another can allow for a neuromuscular approach to naturally reducing TMD symptoms.
Depending on your conditions, Dr. Logan may recommend a variety of therapies such as bite adjustments, orthodontic appliances, physical therapy or specialized occlusal splints. As the range of motion of your TMJ is improved and pain triggers eliminated, you’ll find it easier to do everyday things like eating or smiling without the chronic pain or depression caused by TMD.
