TMJ Treatment

Treatment for TMD Disorders

Glenwood Springs, Colorado

If you suffer from a TMJ disorder, you understand that it can be the cause of significant pain and discomfort. TMJ disorders, sometimes referred to as TMD, are disorders of the temporomandibular joint. The TMJ is commonly known as the jaw joint and is the joint that connects your jaw to the rest of your skull. If the TMJ becomes stressed, misaligned, or injured, it can result in severe pain that may require TMJ therapy.

TMJ disorders may be caused by teeth grinding and clenching, arthritis in the jaw joint, stress, or injury. Sunlight Dentistry provides TMJ treatment in Glenwood Springs, Colorado – helping you live free from pain.

TMJ treatment may involve dental work, a mouth guard, night guard, or lifestyle changes. To learn more about how we can treat your TMJ disorder, please contact us today.
