Are you one of the many Reno TMJ sufferers? If you are affected by Temporomandibular joint or TMJ disorder, you know how the pain and discomfort can impact your life. The Reno Dentist TMJ treatment in the Sparks area has helped countless grateful Reno TMJ patients manage their TMJ disorder.
The Temporomandibular or jaw joint connects the lower jaw bone to the skull. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include jaw and facial pain, headaches, earaches, neck pain and chewing difficulty. TMJ disease is often associated with jaw clicking, locking or clenching, and can cause tooth damage and bone loss.
Many Reno area TMJ patients first sought a possible TMJ diagnosis after trying unsuccessfully to relieve their frequent headaches. Since opening The Reno Dentist in 2011, we have discovered that many people do not realize they have TMJ disorder because it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what is causing the pain. A TMJ and TMD specialist can properly diagnose your specific TMJ issues and recommend an effective course of action.
Because a comprehensive treatment plan is most successful, we work hand-in-hand with a network of TMJ specialists including ENT doctors, neurologists and physical therapists. There are many facets to this often misunderstood disorder. If you are suffering from jaw pain, we recommend a consultation with Dr. Shane Sykes at The Reno Dentist in Reno.
At The Reno Dentist, we take jaw pain seriously.
