TMJ/TMD Therapy – Brecksville, OH
Easing Facial, Jaw, & Neck Pain
TMJ dysfunction, also known as TMD, is a condition that affects the two joints that connect your jawbone to your skull, allowing it to open and close without difficulty. When these joints are sustaining additional force and tension due to issues like bite misalignment or jaw trauma, it could cause symptoms of this condition to arise. Without proper treatment, you can be at risk of experiencing migraines, bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching), and a variety of other symptoms that impact your daily life.

TMJ dysfunction can result from improperly placed restorations, bite misalignment, and misshapen teeth. These issues could all cause your jaw joints to sustain an uneven amount of force, putting extra strain on them. Equilibration is a relatively simple process in which Dr. Saleh will examine the underlying causes of your TMJ dysfunction and address them by fixing misalignment problems or altering the shape of your teeth to allow your bite to properly come together.
Dr. Saleh also offers occlusal splints, which are customized orthotic devices that you can wear at night to strategically shift your jaw into its ideal position to relieve stress from the joints. This mouthguard also doubles as a bruxism nightguard to protect your teeth from nightly grinding and clenching that may occur due to your TMD. The appliance is custom-fitted to your mouth, making it easy and comfortable to sleep with.
