What are TMJ and TMD?

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects the jaw to the temporal bones of the skull. Temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMD, occurs when there are problems with the muscles and jaws in the face. Symptoms can be disruptive and cause added stress, sleep deprivation, and pain. At the Center for Oral and Facial Surgery, we offer life-changing solutions for patients suffering from TMJ and TMD. Give us a call today at (804) 556-1233 to learn about our treatment options.

How is TMD treated?

If you suspect you’re suffering from a TMJ disorder, the Center for Oral and Facial Surgery offers conservative treatment to get you out of pain. Our treatment options include custom night guards to relax the jaw joint and treat clenching, grinding and bruxism. Conservative therapy has been shown to be effective in 80% or more cases of TMD, and it is recommended that these measures be taken before resorting to more extensive treatment. Visit our office to learn more about how Dr. Herrera can help.

How is TMD diagnosed?

If you suspect that you may be suffering from TMD, Dr. Herrera will assess your dental health and take a CT scan to get detailed images of the bones and joints in your mouth. CT scans are non-invasive and only take a few moments, and the result is an accurate image used by Dr. Herrera to determine whether you have any problems with your jaw or the muscles in your face. If you are diagnosed with TMD, Dr. Herrera will work with you to develop a treatment plan specific to your needs and budget.
