Denver TMJ Evaluations

Contact Midtown Dental today to learn more about our dental services.

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects your jaw to your skull. Issues related to your jaw joints are known as TMJ disorders, which can cause face and jaw pain, difficulty opening your mouth, and problems with eating.

At Midtown Dental, our dentists provide expert TMJ evaluations to pinpoint issues with your jaw joints. We develop personalized treatment plans to relieve your symptoms and bring functionality back to your jaw in the least invasive way possible.

Symptoms of TMJ Disorders

TMJ issues can range from myofascial pain to osteoarthritis, and the symptoms depend on the condition causing your temporomandibular disorder (TMD).
The following are typical symptoms of TMD:

  • Jaw pain
  • Clicking, popping, or grinding sounds in the jaw
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness, earaches
  • Facial pain
  • Pain in the neck or shoulder
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Stiff or locked jaw

What Causes TMJ Disorders?

Causes of TMJ issues include the following:

  • Frequently grinding your teeth and or clenching your jaw
  • Injuries to your jaw, head, neck, etc.
  • Arthritis damage to your jaw joint

Conditions that lead to damage, trauma, or stress to your jaw muscles and joints can lead to TMJ disorders. Traumatic injuries might cause tears in muscles or ligaments, and arthritis might lead to the deterioration of the cartilage that protects your jaw joints. 

Treatment for TMJ Issues

Our goal is to relieve your pain and restore the function of your jaw, and we always begin with the most conservative treatment possible. Nonsurgical treatments include physical therapy, mouth guards for protection and realignment, pain medicine, muscle relaxants, and steroid injections. Schedule a TMJ Evaluation at Midtown Dental in Denver, CO. 

TMJ issues can evolve into serious health conditions if left untreated, so early detection and treatment are vital for your of overall health. Our experienced dental team at Midtown Dental in Denver, CO, offers TMJ evaluations and individualized treatment options to realign and stabilize your jaw.

If you have symptoms of TMJ disorders, call us at 303-377-2345 to schedule an appointment today.

This dentist is so good that I choose to go here despite being out of my insurance network. I had previously gone to another dentist in Cherry creek who kept performing expensive treatments that didn’t help. After my first visit at midtown dental, they resolved my issue. Their staff is incredibly kind, patient, and transparent.

We've been going to Midtown Dental for close to 10 years. Dr. T and his team are our favorites! Having two young girls who were not particularly excited about going to the dentist, they were made to feel incredibly comfortable and now actually look forward to going to the dentist!!! Thanks Midtown Dental!

I have been going to Midtown Dental for about 8 years. I always love the dental hygienists. My mom was a hygienist so I have been spoiled my whole life with a great hygienist (totally bias). I love the hygienists at Midtown. I had a great cleaning today. They use the ultrasonic water to get the plaque off which is super comfortable. They are thorough. This is a down-to-earth place which is super friendly and professional staff. Covid Protocols are in place, which made me feel comfortable. Insurance was billed and my whole experience was smooth.

The hygienists are always gentle and ensure you feel comfortable throughout the cleanings. Dr. T is absolutely fantastic. He is thorough, does a great job making himself available or any questions, and he has a great sense of humor. I cannot recommend this dental office highly enough.
