TMJ Disorder

TMJ Treatment

An imbalanced bite, bruxism, or a stressful lifestyle can trigger a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder – a common but painful condition.

Peter Jeppsen, DDS, can help relieve muscle tightness, facial pain, and other symptoms by prescribing a simple, effective TMJ treatment

How can TMJ treatment at our Boulder, CO, office help you? 

TMJ Disorder

Relieve TMJ Pain  and Protect Your Smile 

Find Relief 

TMJ disorders can cause widespread side effects such as headaches, difficulty opening your mouth, and neck pain. Treatment can help you reduce these symptoms and find lasting comfort. 

Protect Your Teeth 

Patients with TMJ disorders often have imbalanced bites, which can cause excessive wear on your teeth and increase your risk of tooth decay. By treating the cause of your TMJ disorder, we can protect your smile from damage. 

Affordable, Simple Care 

In most cases, patients are able to find relief from their condition and protect their smile with a simple night guard or oral appliance. These orthotic devices are comparatively cost-effective and can distribute the force of your bite during sleep, preventing damage and relieving pain all at once. 

Here is how misalignment can trigger temporomandibular joint disorders...

Treatment does more than just align the jaw joint...

You Should Consider Treatment If You:

Are Experiencing Ongoing Pain

The pain caused by TMJ disorder can make it difficult to eat and speak which can significantly impact your daily life.

Struggle to Open Your Jaw

When the jaw joint becomes misaligned or begins to deteriorate, it can prevent you from being able to fully open your jaw. 

Are Otherwise in Good Health

If you require surgery for TMJ disorder, you should be in good overall health as certain conditions can increase your risk of complications.
