TMJ 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 your mouth to open and close without difficulty. When these joints are exposed to strain or excess tension due to issues like bite misalignment or jaw trauma, it can cause painful symptoms to arise. Without proper TMJ therapy from our Brecksville, OH dentist, 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 experience 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 a few 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 remove stress from the joints. These mouthguards also double as a bruxism nightguard to protect your teeth from unconscious grinding and clenching that may occur due to your TMD. Your appliance will be custom-fitted to your mouth, making it easy and comfortable to sleep with.
