Fixing Your TMj Problems

If you are experiencing symptoms relating to TMJ disorders, there are various treatments available for you. We utilize the most up-to-date technology so we can provide a personalized treatment for you. 

Smiles on Randolph has a CBCT (cone-beam computed tomography) machine to take in-depth images of your skull which will help determine your treatment.

Possible treatments include Botox injections, removable nightguards, or orthodontics to realign the jaw. The advanced technology at Smiles on Randolph will help you receive the best care possible.

TMJ & TMD at Smiles on Randolph

what treatment is right for me?

During your evaluation we will determine exactly what is causing your jaw pain. Once that is completed, the team will determine the best treatment plan for you.

You may be a patient who would benefit from Botox injections to alleviate pain, which work by relaxing certain muscles to reduce pain.

If you are clenching or grinding your teeth at night, we will likely prescribe a nightguard. Introducing a nightguard into your daily routine will prevent the jaw from locking into place, therefore letting the muscles relax at night. This will also help prevent damage to your teeth caused by clenching and grinding.

Some patients need treatment if their jaw is misaligned. Our team may recommend orthodontics for you if the reason for your jaw pain requires something more permanent.
