TMJ Treatment in Dubai

The treatment that relieves your pain

TMJ is known as the ‘temporomandibular joint’ which is located where your lower jaw meets the skull. This gives us the ability to close and open our mouths, providing ease to speak, yawn, and chew.

Sometimes, problems occur where difficulties with chewing or speaking come with patients. This includes jaw joint issues, where there may be discomfort on the jaw. Another term this may be known as is TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder).

It is significant to ensure any issues are prevented in order to improve the quality of your lifestyle. If you are experiencing any discomfort in your jaw and notice pain while opening your mouth, it is best to consult with a professional dentist who will examine your mouth with advanced dental technology and determine the best solution for your comfort and better quality of life.

How can a dentist treat TMJ?

The options for TMJ Treatment in Dubai vary for every individual. The level of discomfort can be different for each individual where a dentist could recommend a night guard or in severe cases surgery may be suggested after diagnosis.

A night guard is a dental appliance that is meant to be worn while you sleep to protect your teeth from any teeth grinding (bruxism) while sleeping. This is recommended if teeth grinding is causing your TMJ issue.

If there are minor discomforts, an orthodontist may examine to establish if you have any malocclusions and design your smile journey with a treatment plan that shows how your teeth will become perfectly aligned and prevent the TMJ issues.

This includes orthodontic treatment using Invisalign or braces (metal, clear or lingual braces). By doing so, any misalignments that cause irregular jaw movements will be fixed.

With complex cases, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon is best to visit. They may suggest surgery for your case which will help reconstruction of your jaw.

During your treatment process, follow-ups and regular checkups are highly recommended to ensure that you are on the right path and there is no discomfort.
