Stop Your Jaw Pain and Headaches

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) are the little hinges that sit underneath each ear. They connect the lower jaw to the skull and let you open and close your mouth. Like any other joint, the TMJ can become misaligned and dysfunctional, resulting in jaw pain, headaches, and other forms of discomfort. Worst case scenario, you might eventually have trouble opening and closing your mouth at all. Get in touch with Dr. Crumpton to set up an appointment and get to the root of TMJ pain, ensuring you can begin seeking the relief you deserve thanks to TMJ therapy in our Trophy Club, TX dental office.

Why Choose David Crumpton, DDS for TMJ Therapy?

Diagnosis & Treatment

We’ll need to take X-rays of the joint and test the mobility of your jaw to confirm whether you have a TMJ disorder. There are many symptoms associated with the condition – such as a stiff or painful jaw, migraines, persistent earaches, and bruxism – but they tend to have multiple possible causes, which is why a proper diagnosis is so important. Once we’ve checked the joint, we can discuss whether an occlusal adjustment or an oral appliance would be a suitable solution in your case.

A misaligned bite could be putting extra pressure and stress on the jaw joint. To get rid of the excess pressure, we’ll have to adjust the teeth so that they come together evenly throughout the mouth. This makes sure the  joint has a chance to reach its proper resting place. Occlusal adjustments typically require us to remove a little bit of enamel from specific teeth. We might also place crowns in some areas to make the teeth wider or taller instead. It all depends on what’s best for your unique bite.
