Longmont: Get Dental Treatment For TMJ Disorder - Teeth Grinding Jaw Pain

You may, (or may not!) want to keep in mind that the temporomandibular (tem-puh-roe-man-DIB-u-lur) joint is a body part, not a condition! That’s why you say 'TMJ disorder.' And you need your TMJ if you want to open and shut your mouth!

Hover Dental Group, which has been servicing Longmont residents since 2006, has updated its TMJ dysfunction services, offering additional solutions for patients in distress. Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders, which affect the jaw joints, can cause significant discomfort - including headaches, difficulty chewing, and facial pain.

The dental practice, which offers family, cosmetic, and restorative dental health services, now provides patients with individualized assessments and treatment protocols based on the severity and persistence of the condition. As TMJ is very often caused by bruxism - or teeth grinding - solutions may include mouth guards or biofeedback devices. In more severe cases, reconstructive dentistry or oral surgery might be employed in order to offer you or your loved one permanent relief.

According to one dental research study, an estimated 10 million people in the U.S. suffer from TMJ disorder. Other analyses peg the number closer to 30 million, as many people do not seek treatment. However, its prevalence is increasingly recognized - after lower back pain, it is the most common pain-inducing musculoskeletal condition. The incidence of TMJ is higher in women than in men, and peaks between the ages of 20 and 40 - but can also occur in patients over the age of 40 who experience a change in bite height through years of wear and tear.

Hover Dental Group recognizes that the causes and even symptoms of TMJ disorder vary from patient to patient. In addition to bruxism, causes may include arthritis, stress, an uneven bite, trauma to the jaw, and dislocation of the disc between the ball and socket joint.

Mouth guards, for example, may correct your bite by fixing your jaw in an optimal position, while training you to relax your jaw muscles during sleep. But in some cases, in order to balance and align a patient’s bite properly, corrective dental procedures may involve replacing missing teeth or using crowns, bridges, or braces.

Under the direction of Colorado native Dr. Casey Kochevar, Hover Dental Group provides all general dental services for both adults and children. In addition, the practice offers a full range of cosmetic and laser dentistry.

One patient recently commented: “I have been going to Hover Dental Group for several years now and have always had wonderful experiences. Staff and Dr. Kochevar have always been proactive and responsive. Highly recommend.”

If you're in pain, you don't need to be - that's the short version. And if you have no insurance, this very friendly group will work with you on a payment plan - no stress!
