Our Lexington, KY dentist’s office takes a multidisciplinary approach so that we can provide comprehensive dentistry solutions without having to outsource the more challenging work. You may be surprised to know that we even handle things that are not, on the surface at least, something that you would normally associate with the dentist. For example, if you notice that you are experiencing recurring migraines and other headaches, upper back and neck pain, and popping or clicking sounds in your mouth, you are most likely experiencing TMD/TMJ trouble. And that is very much a dentistry issue.
Here’s why: TMJ issues are usually the result of habitual grinding and/or clenching of your teeth. It is often happening on a subconscious level and due to too much stress in your life.
The technical name for this condition is Bruxism. Call it what you like, the bottom line is that it puts lots of additional strain on your TMJ (the joints in your mouth) and causes your headaches to occur with the sort severity and frequency that will disrupt your daily life in a big way.
If you are having such troubles, you will want to arrange for a consultation with our Bluegrass area team. In many cases we can bring an end to all your headaches by addressing the issues at the root of the problem, namely your stress-related bruxism.
Keep reading to hear about the possibilities, and then get in-touch to schedule your TMJ/TMD assessment at Beaumont Family Dentistry. You can call us today at 859-721-2072 to set up your visit to our specialized office, the TMJ And Sleep Dentistry Center of Central Kentucky, LLC!
If you’re having trouble relaxing your jaw, we can use advanced treatment options like TruDenta and other oral appliances to give you comfortable, complete relief from your TMJ pain. After all, putting up with constant headaches and migraines is no way to go through life! By addressing the issues associated with your TMJ, we can help you rest better, feel less pain, and be healthier overall. What have you got to lose?
Other Dental Solutions
Here’s something to think about: you could be experiencing TMJ-related pain because your teeth are not in tip-top shape. Like, if your teeth are not sufficiently aligned, or you have some teeth that are missing altogether, this could be the root cause of your problems. As such, this necessitates a different approach when it comes to TMJ/TMD treatment.
As far as other dental solutions go, we can provide something like crowns or set you up with an Invisalign short-term orthodontics treatment, depending on your situation. Don’t worry, Invisalign works through a series of aligners not unlike a mouthguard. It can set you straight without any metal brackets and wires, and without all the usual hassles associated with “braces.”
Dr. Takacs may also recommend behavior modification: eating softer foods for a while to reduce the stress on the jaw joints, practicing gentle stretching exercises, and other conservative therapies. The thing you need to know is that one way or another, we will help you get your life back to normal ASAP!
