Visit Us For Expert TMJ Help
Each of our guests at Brian C. McDowell, DDS is extremely important to us. Our goal is to provide everyone who trusts us with their care a high level of personalized treatment, including help with TMJ pain if needed. With our effective noninvasive treatment methods, you shouldn’t have to continue in pain day after day. Come to us and receive the expert help you deserve.
Over the past 12 years, Dr. McDowell has completed advanced training in treating TMJ issues, so your care will be in good hands. Here’s how we can help:
- We will use a computer program called BioPak to measure the muscle activity in your head and neck.
- We’ll place electrodes (a completely pain-free procedure) on the muscles we want to analyze.
- From the results of the evaluation, we can have a custom oral appliance made to address your TMJ problems.
Your appliance will fit comfortably in your mouth, relieving tension on your TMJ and helping to ease your pain. The appliance will also keep your top and bottom teeth apart so that you don’t grind them in your sleep. Teeth grinding, or bruxism, can damage your tooth enamel over time, requiring restorative dentistry to correct. Stopping this habit now can help prevent additional pain and expense later on.
Improve Your Jaw Function With TMJ Therapy
Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) sit on either side of your head. These joints attach your jaw to your skull and allow you to open and close your mouth for routine daily activities like eating, talking, and yawning.
Researchers aren’t certain why it happens, but these joints can become inflamed and irritated. When they do, you can experience a significant amount of pain. Things you take for granted each day, like enjoying your favorite foods, can suddenly become unpleasant and next to impossible to do comfortably.
With our advanced training, experience, and leading-edge technology, we can help with your TMJ pain. Call us today for Fitchburg TMJ treatment: 978-401-9081. You can also request an appointment using our online form. You can feel better soon!
