TMJ Treatment — Coventry & Vernon

Relieve Your Discomfort, Improve Your Health

TMJ Treatment Vernon & Coventry

Drs. Hadden and Whidden, LLC, provides TMJ treatment at our dental offices in Vernon and Coventry, CT, for patients who suffer from chronic pain or excessive tooth wear. The TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is an area just in front of the ear that connects the lower jaw to the skull. The health of this joint is directly affected by conditions that affect other joints in the body including arthritis, dislocation, ankylosis, and developmental abnormalities. When this joint is no longer in harmony with the muscles of the face and bones of the skull, the resultant dysfunction can cause significant pain and impairment. Signs and symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder vary in their presentation and can be very complex, but are often simple. Symptoms will involve more than one of the numerous components of the TMJ system including muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, bones, connective tissue, and the teeth. Patients who come to our dentists for TMJ treatment are often experiencing biting or chewing discomfort, clicking, grinding or popping noises, earaches, muscle tenderness, reduced ability to open the mouth, and frequent headaches. For some, even the simple tasks of chewing and swallowing become nearly impossible.

Thankfully, when the myriad of signs and symptoms of TMJ dysfunction are addressed at an early stage, conservative treatment at our practice is highly successful. The results can be life-changing. If you are experiencing TMJ discomfort, please contact our Coventry or Vernon office today for a complimentary consultation to learn more about how our treatments can benefit you.
