Las Vegas TMJ/TMD Dentistry
Cosmetic & Dental Implant and Sedation Dentist, Dr. Ghodsi , in Las Vegas treats patients for TMJ, Temporomadibular Joint Disfunction.
The TMJ are the temporomandibular joints, the hinges that connect the jaw bones and muscles.
Problems with this joint can cause a variety of painful conditions which are collectively known as TMJ, TMJ Disorders, or TMD. At Lasting Smiles, we have successfully treated many TMJ patients in Las Vegas without surgery and without drugs.
The most common cause of TMJ disorders is a bad bite. A bad bite occurs when your teeth are not aligned properly when chewing, talking or at rest. Because of the different facial movements that require the TMJ joint in order to work, TMJ Las Vegas patients have experienced problems in their face, neck, and shoulder muscles. These problems are worsened by the tension that the jaw bone and jaw muscles experience every day.
Here at Lasting Smiles, we provide various treatments so that our TMJ Las Vegas dental patients don’t have to worry about conditions worsening. Our treatments focus on stabilizing your bite and do not include surgical procedures on your TMJ joints. Lasting Smiles uses procedures like crowns, veneers, and orthodontics that TMJ Las Vegas patients can undergo to treat their temporomandibular problems.
When diagnosing you during your TMJ Las Vegas appointment, Lasting Smiles uses advanced technology to thoroughly examine your jaw joints and muscles, as well as your jaw movement. This is to ensure that all aspects of your bite are comprehensively analyzed and that your TMJ will be treated accordingly.
