Get TMJ Pain Relief with Dental Bridges and Crowns

Posted on 12/30/2015
woman with TMJ painRegardless of whether you grind or clench your teeth, or if years of wear and tear simply grind them down, you may start to experience TMJ pain. TMJ pain can hinder your quality of life, but you don’t have to go on living this way. In fact, dental bridges and crowns can actually go a long way in relieving TMJ pain and problems.

How Damaged Teeth Affect the Jaw

Teeth that are broken, gapped, or missing can cause a variety of problems, not to mention the cosmetic issues. These problems can damage the jaw joint, and to correct it, your dentist might recommend smile rejuvenation through the use of dental bridges or crowns. By putting in these restorations, your teeth and jaws may begin to function in harmony again without the pain.

Replacing Missing Teeth

If you are missing teeth, regardless of whether they fell out or needed to be extracted, the rest of your teeth will start to shift positions in your mouth. When this occurs, you could be at risk of developing a bite misalignment. A dental bridge is a good way to replace the missing teeth while providing the stability needed to prevent the rest of the teeth from moving. Replacing these missing teeth and properly aligning the bite has been shown to be successful at relieving TMJ pain.

Restoring Broken Teeth

A misaligned bite can also damage your teeth. If you have a habit of grinding your teeth at night, you could develop cracks that can worsen your pain. Placing crowns over these damaged teeth can protect against future damage while bringing your natural bite back into balance.

If you are living with TMJ pain, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Contact us today to see what restorations might be available to help provide you with TMJ pain relief.
