TMJ symptoms affect any activity that involves the jaw. This means that activities that are normally undertaken many times each day, such as talking and eating, can become an uncomfortable ordeal to the TMJ sufferer. In the past, people with TMJ problems often resigned themselves to suffer in silence rather than undergo costly and potentially risky surgical procedures to fix their bite.
However, at Tyrer Dental Care we offer affordable option to help. Splint therapy aims to correct the patient’s bite without surgery, through the use of dental appliances that align the jaw gradually over time. BOTOX is also very useful in easing the pain from TMJ (temporal mandibular joint) disorders and relief from migraines and various other dentally related headaches.
